    Are you talking about the hole on the sie of the posts? If so that is what I did so it may be another problem.

You untighten those connections, i mean really untighten them then you will see that there is a whole that you can feed your wires into once you have unscrewed those inputs far enough.

When power is turned on, standby light comes on normally, but in any playing mode, the receiver switches off and the standby light flashes.


It looks like this is a common problem with a lot of the Sherwood Receivers. I've had the same problem with my R-125RDS for a while now. Finally hit on solution today by replacing a power transistor. The transistor in question is not on the power amp board but instead screwed to the chassis and wired to the mainboard. I believe it is part of the output short protection circuit. In my case the component was a 2SD2059 (silicon NPN 100V,5A) replaced by equivalent 2SD1407. The transistor seems to run pretty warm so I guess this is why they ultimately fail after a few years.

Unable to connect speaker wires to back of Sherwood 5502 receiver (no way to get them toi stay in)


If you unscrew the red and black knobs a few turns you will expose a small hole that is drilled through each post. Insert the twisted bare wire end into the appropriate hole and tighten the black or red knob to secure it.

Or get connectors as in this article...

Hello, I have a Sherwood RX-5502 and currently have a pair of 8Ohm speakers hooked up to the SPEAKER A terminals. Can I hook up a pair of 4Ohm speakers to the SPEAKER B terminals without issue from...


The statement on page 7 might allow enough wiggle room for a single pair of 4-ohm speakers used alone. Procede with caution and don't try to blow the walls down with them. Monitor for excessive heat or strain and if it clips or self-protects back off.

I have a sherwood RX 4109.....can i hook a pair of 6 ohm speakers and then a powered sub?


By design, yes for one pair of 6-ohm speakers used at a time; depends on the sub for the second BUT there is no way to control its volume at the Sherwood.

Splicing headphone outputs designed for nominal 8-ohm impedance speakers to a 47K-ohm (typical) RCA load is not a good idea but it might work on the Sherwood because this receiver does not automatically silence your other speakers when the headphone jack is installed.

There is NO other volume-controlled output to choose. Try it.

Sherwood RX-5502 receiver - get no sound.. checked polarity - OK... replaced speaker wire - OK... checked speakers on another device - OK.... tried phono and tuner and cd player - no sound with any........


Hi,

After doing all this troubleshooting on your receiver, Check if master volume on the surround levels are too low. Adjust master and surround level.

There may aIso incorrect selection of the input source. Select the correct input source.

If after doing this the problem still continue, it means the sound ic in the receiver is damage. the sound ic brings out the sounds from the receiver. You will have to open the receiver to locate the sound ic in the receiver and use the multimeter to read capacitors and change the damage ones.

Thanks for using Fixya.
