Creative S750,all speakers distorted

Hi
Got the S750's an the fuse blew, replaced it, power led came on, an the pod works, however all the speakers produce distortion when music is played, or any input. tested all the speakers on another amp an they are fine. checked all the boards for burnouts but nothing. I'm pretty good with a soldering iron an i can probably replace any faulty stuff, i just need a helping hand on what to look for an where, i do have a multi metre for checking componants. Thanks for any advice!

    Same problem. Fuzzy output. I think the AMP built into the sub is faulty. I've been trying hard to find a way to replace it (the subwoofer/amp unit) since everything else is fine.

    I have the excat same problem, i turned it on after moving house for first time. POP! ..... now all i get is a low volume near silent humming/buzzing, distorted sound! Creative being thier usual self wont have nothing to do with it as its 4 years old.....im going to throw the sale of good act at them if they dont offer something better than a discount on a "newer system" of my choice......they have not released a system better than my current S750...... all in all every product ive bought from them has died eventually. Not a happy customer!!!! Sort it out creative.. Soon!

Your problem sounds like it is the high voltage power supply not working. I would start by checking the IRF740 MOSFETs on the power supply board. Below I have pasted a link to a forum thread about fixing the Gigaworks S750 systems. There is a lot of information there about the problem you are experiencing as well as complete diagrams of the power supply and good pictures.

I have a Creative Gigaworks S700 i have checked both fuses still no power to control box


Stupid question: does the sound still work? it could be the LED just died after continual use (rare, since they last a long time, but not uncommon).
If not... it could be the controlling circuit board died. In which case, unless you have electronics repair experience, it would be probably more worthwhile to just replace the speakers, as pricey a model as it is.

I have a Creative Gigaworks S700 (subwoofer) with no power out. LED off. Fuse ok.


first fuse as standard is in the plug to the power adapter. The second fuse is located at the back of the box where the power lead goes into. It is covered so look closely you just need something flat to open it. I have the S750 and that is what im basing this on but if the s700 is the same then you will find this helpful. Sorry did not notice this before.
Hope this helps.

Creative s750 speaker distortion


The volume in your system and your television is separate. Mute your television, and rely only on your system.

All I need is the control pod for the Gigaworks S750


I had an extra one but I sold it. According to creative labs they do not sell any replacement parts for the speaker systems. The best suggestion that I can give is to check craigslist and ebay for the control pods.

Audio control pod seems dead


You can see about getting a new control pod from ebay or craigslist but the problem is more likely inside the subwoofer. Below I have pasted a link to a forum thread about fixing the Gigaworks S750 systems. There is not much information there about control pod problems but at least the people on the thread will help as much as they can. If you are not familiar with electronics then some of the people on the forum thread can help if you are willing to ship the subwoofer box to them.

Sub has died overnight


Change the fuse - located at the 220V input. Use a knife ti release it. Then the system will work again.

Audio control pod


I have a similar issue too, but my problem is that the sub has green light, and my control pod has an 'off' light, but it won't turn on :(

Control pod


Double check the connections, if the connection for the control pod is good then something is wrong inside. I would say most likely thing would be a problem on the power supply inside the subwoofer box.
