Question about Sherwood RD-6108 Receiver

1 Answer

Amp powers on, but no sound is produced

My receiver powers on, all displays are working properly, but no sound is produced. I have tried connecting several different aux inputs such as the CD, video 1, 2 and 3, and the tape input. None produced sounds. I opened the casing to check for loose connections and broken fuses, everything is is connected with no blown fuses. Thank you for your help. -Addison

    It worked fine for months.  Then today, I had no sound.  The display looks as it usually does, but when I play a cd or the fm radio the sound comes on for two seconds, then goes silent.  I tried all the solutions for this problem in the manual.

    All speakers function as desired when operating CD player. TV operation fails to come through the speakers except through the Rt. Front speaker. I expect that I have something wrong in my settings but have no idea what is needed. The test tone button plays through all speakers very well. I have downloaded the manual and hope to learn more but will appreciate your assistance. Thanks. Arnold

RCA Pre-Out Making Producing a Mumming and a Popping Sound.

the speakers hook to speaker wires not to any thing else no power no negative poles do you have a remote shut off switch connected to amp this would be important to cut off amp

when cut off amp if you still here the humming this can be an indicator of low power being produced by alternator alternators produce 14 anything below 12 would mean replacement of alternator

if alternator fine then you need to find new ground for amp and make sure you have a good ground for sterio this can be checked with a test light
to check a ground all you do is hook gator clip to power then touch test light end to ground on radio end light comes on got a good ground (make sure not to touch any other sterio wires just the ground wire while connected to power to check grounds)
if pulsing in test light on the ground means you have a bad ground
just disconnect move to better ground

check the amp ground the same way as decribed above
