For temporary just for testing it ok.. but using banana clips permanently it not a good idear because due to excesive sound vibration it will create static for sure to avoid that you may have to souldering those wired in place to avoid that static and causing eventual damage inside your receiver... any conection as to be well connected special went it time to connect a large amps., beside a turn table, you may look for a good ground.... I suggest to put a solid ground wire also betwen your tv set and your receiver
for eventual hi static discharge., also make sure use a power bar for more protection ...good luck

How do I attach banana plugs to my receiver's binding posts?


Easiest would be to remove banana plugs on one end of wire and put eyelet on or wrap bare wire around the post and tighten nut and washer down onto it to secure it as in the older days of posts and wires.

Receiver keeps going to standby


I don't know about the newer receivers but this sounds like an arching OFF/ON power switch that was a problem on Pioneer receivers years ago. I would bypass the switch and see what happens.

1. Unplug unit from wall.
2. Jumper two wires going to off/on switch using alligator clip with insulated boots on clips.
3. Plug amplifier into disconnected circuit breaker/fuse protected AC strip.
4. Plug AC strip into wall outlet, turn AC strip switch ON and see if problem disappears.

I CAN ONLY RECEIVE 2 OR 3 RADIO CHANNELS ON MY INSIGNIA RECEIVER


Radio tuners receiving AM and FM channels/broadcast MUST have some sort of antenna connection. For local channels a paper clip will work, but for more distant channels, use either a better inside antenna or purchase a outside antenna as needed.

How do I hook up the atenna to cable


Do you mean 'cable' like in 'cable TV'? You don't.

If you want TV-related sound a cable box, dvr or sat box will be the best source of it and will have at least stereo analog audio out, probably multichannel digital, too. Use whichever works best.

Connected 8ohm speakers with monster wire to banana clips.Turned on unit says check speaker wires I then rechecked and turned it on then no sound but I can faintly hear the speakers -50dbs hat gives?


You didn't mention >>>>> if it worked before you added the Monster cables and banana plugs <<<<<.

Nor did you say what you found when you checked the speaker wires. If you found nothing you still need to investigate further.

When you make a change and things go south you have to start UN-making the change to find out what went wrong.

Faint sound overall usually means a Tape Monitor or Mute function is active.

INSIGNIA TV WITH ILIVE BAR. 1 SIDE WORKS


Try swapping your cables from the sound-bar to the TV. If the sound still only plays through one channel but the channel has changed from right to left or vice-versa, then you have a bad cable.

If the performance is the same, connect a different device using the same cables to see if it's the sound bar input or the TV output.

Once you know where the problem is (the sound bar, the TV, or the cables) you'll know what unit needs repair or replacement.

It is entirely possible that a solder joint for the sound-bar has come loose. A soldering pen would easilly fix this if it's a bad joint/connection.

Hope this helps!

No sound from speakers. Everything else OK.


If headphones work then so does the amplifier. When did this problem start? From what I can find it almost sounds like it thinks you have headphones plugged in, which would disable the speakers.

Insignia nsr2000 on/off problem.


had the same problem... turns out the copper on my red and black speaker wire (on the speaker, not receiver end) was touching - causing my receiver to go to standby (self-preservation probably lol). i pulled the wires further apart so the copper ends weren't touching and that solved it.

Pioneer VSX-815 speaker wiring


You can hook them up either way, the banana jacks are good for hooking two speakers to one terminal (ie one through the botton, one banana) but the electrical connection is the same either way. Sometimes the banana capable jacks are on speakers A and speakers B, and the surround don't accept banana plugs, your stuck with how your reciever is wired.
