The receiver is going into a protection mode. This happens because there is a failure either inside the unit itself or in something attached to it (such as the speakers).

A quick and easy thing to try is to disconnect all of the speaker wires. If your NS-R2000 now stays on, carefully examine all of the speaker wiring to be sure it is not shorted. Also check the speakers to be sure they work properly.

Where can I get a remote control.


I believe that you want the INSIGNIA KOR3551. You can find the remote using the following website.

No sound from my speakers


Make sure your source is properly assigned and switched to respected input. Your speakers should also be engaged.

Probably a short in the amp that will need to be repaired.

How do you hook up an mp3 player to insignia ns-r2000


You will need an Dual RCA to 3.5mm stereo cable. One similar to this: http://www.dcables.net/Dual-RCA-to-3_5-mm-Stereo-Cable-5-Feet.aspx
It would probably be easier to pick one up at your local Wal-Mart or Radio Shack.
Just connect the RCA connectors to one of the audio line inputs and the 3.5mm to your mp3 player. Set your insignia to receive the source you just connected.
Hope this helps

Can't run tv sound from my Vizio M190VA tv through my Insignia NS-R2000 receiver so it will play through my speakers in the ceiling which are connected to the receiver. Is it possible to do what I am...


I have no idea why manuafacturers or users think a TV is a good place to originate sound in this Cable Box age. The Cable/SAT box is for all intents and purpose a hi-fi multichannel audio source like any other audio component, where the TV's audio was probably an afterthought.

With that in mind, source the TV-related audio directly to the NS and skip all that zig-zagging of audio all over the room before it gets to your ears.

I also recommend taking all high-end video directly to the TV/monitor from whatever sources you have. Added cabling (and cost) doesn't help. Let the specialty devices each handle what they master.

Does that help?

My receiver cuts out as soon as it gets a signal


Is THAT the model number? There are several.

The manuals are conspicuously lacking in guidance for power issues.

Does it shut down on all inputs or just certain ones? What about good ol' FM?

Has it always done that or is this a new problem on an existing machine?

Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts and overloads by refusing to turn on or stay on.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.


You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.


If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.


If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Or you could call them...

Hello, We have had our receiver for over a year now, with no problems. Recently we have noticed that the receiver does not save the radio presets in memory if we have turned it off using the main...


Hi there,
if you are switching it off at the mains or unplugging it from the wall and leaving it without power for more than a short period of time (over 1 minute), yes it will loose any "saved" information.
Some more advanced processors do have a back up cell(like a cr2020) mounted on the board as they have multiple settings for speakers and complex I.P data set ups that can be kept alive and remebered in the memory for a good ammount of time until some form of power is restored.
Your receiver though, would not have such a thing and although it may store the presets briefly (up to about 30secs to maybe a minute) if there is a power interuption, there is nothing inside to help it store anyhting once it is unplugged.
So in short, if you don't want the hassle of programming stuff all the time, just leave it in standby.

Insignia NS-R2000 receiver


Check the impedance ratings of your speakers. Sherwood, the actual manufacturer of the NS-R2000 receiver, suggests that you use speakers with an eight ohm impedance if you have only one pair attached. If you have two pairs of speakers attached, the impedance rating of each pair should be sixteen ohms.

This is because Sherwood wired the receiver such that an additional pair of speakers is placed in a parallel circuit to the first set. When this is done, the impedance (resistance) of the load seen by the amplifier drops. As resistance drops, you get closer to a short circuit (no appreciable resistance).

Many other receivers wire the speakers in series, which causes the impedance to go up.

Personal experience seems to suggest that the amplifier is OK with a four ohm load on it. It does run warmer with a four ohm load, which is what you'd expect. It's when you have multiple sets of four ohm rated speakers that you will get into trouble, as this means the receiver only sees a two ohm load. This will cause overheating and shutdown.

At this point the power transistors in the amplifier may have been damaged. It may require repair. Fortunately, replacement parts are readily available (though not from Sherwood or Insignia). If it continues to shut down, stop using it. You could end up burning out your speakers.
