Question about Yamaha RX-V2400 Receiver

Insignia NS-R2000 receiver

This receiver worked very well for a few months after I got it, but now it shuts down immediately when sound is put through. I have two sets of speakers, and it does seem that the Bose speakers cause it to shut down immediately, whereas the older subwoofer system will allow it to go a little longer. I've tried resetting and even switching all the connections, and it doesn't help.
Any suggestions welcome!

    Mine shuts off too but not immediately. Sometimes it is 5 minutes, other times it is 15. But it has also shut itself off when changing volume and/or switching the input.

    My Insignia NS-R2000 Receiver works on only very low volume. When I raise the volume it goes into "Standby" mode and no sound is available. Do I have a lemon? I have tried switching the speaker outputs, etc. Any ideas? Thanks

    Insignia NS-R2000 turn it on, select input. Immediately goes into Standby Mode. After I purchased it, it play for upwards of one hour at a time (longest I would listen to it). More recently, it would go into Standby Mode after 5 to 15 minutes. Now, it enters Standby Mode immediately.

    It goes to standby whenever things from the imput get too "loud"

  • Anonymous Mar 21, 2009

    If I turn the volume up to lets say, 30, the reciever will go to standby mode! If I take it off standby, I have to turn the volume down fairly quickly otherwise it will go back to standby mode.

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.

No sound from my speakers


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

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...

Insignia GPS INSIGNIA NS-CNV20 Pover Up and Shutting down


Try resetting your navigator by inserting a tin tool (e.g. unbent paper clip) into the reset port. A schematic can be found in the owner's manual. Also, ensure that the unit is securely connected to power or that the battery is fully charged. If these steps don't resolve the problem, return with the unit to the place of purchase to pursue service options.

I have a fm-am receiver #ns-R2000, I push the power button & it shuts down immediatly, What could be the salution?


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.
