Question about Sherwood RX-5502 Receiver
Reciever sounds normal when playing radion, but needs to be turned full volume for CD, tape, and phono, just to hear anything. What's the problem?
I was playing around with my Sherwood RD 6513 and adjust the the output level to its maximum, amongst other settings. This limited my output on the amp to a maximum volume of 65 not 90+.. Anyway i pluged in the microphone and done another 'auto setup' of the volume levels and distances, and this allowed the volume to exceed 65 again!
Also if you have an external source such as a DVD player - i would assume you have already checked its output volume setting?

The problem is the fact that the new receiver has no phono input. The phono input has an extra stage of amplification built in. Your receiver is working fine. You need to purchase a phono pre-amp. These run around $20. Connect the turntable to the preamp and the presmp output to any line level input on your new receiver and everything will work as expected.

if bose unit has built in amplifier .Then your sherwood would have to have a variable RCA output jacks in order to work with sub.Then bose audio input RCA cable would connect there.If bose unit does not have built in amp .Then you would connect sherwood left/right speaker outputs into bose left/right inputs .Then other bose speakers will connect to bose unit

SOURCE: keeps turning itself off
If Both speakers are working at a low volume and you turn it up and it clips and shuts off you have one of 3 problems. you have over driven your speakers and one has shorted the voice coil but still will work at low volume, its a overload protection for ohms short in receiver. unhook each speaker and turn balance to the one hooked up and turn up receiver if it shuts off do the same with other speaker to determine which side is bad. 2 speaker wires are touching at speaker or receiver. 3 a bad receiver output transister. Good luck.

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.
