Question about Creative Labs GigaWorks S700 Computer Speakers
I would like to find a repair facility for this as Creative doesn't support this any longer. It is not under warranty. I blew the output amplifiers in the sub-woofer. I had the audio output of one computer, plugged into the input of an Audigy 4 line in on another computer, and forgot to turn down the volume on the Audigy 4 before turning on the other computer. I know it sounds unusual, but I had this like this for 3 1/2 years without a problem. It's bad enough that I'm an electronic technician myself, but I also knew what I could get away with. I would appreciate any help in this, even the schematics. I have also contacted Creative about the schematics, and am waiting to hear from anyone with help. Thanks, Bruce E. Krause Sr.

There is obviously a problem on the amp board with 3 STA575 amplifiers. It may be that one of the diodes is shorted or one of the capacitors has dried up or shorted. For more information I have posted a link to a forum thread that contains all of the information you would need to fix the Gigaworks S750 system. If the information has not already been posted there then you can ask on there and the people there will point you in the right direction.

Congrats, you yourself is a good troubleshooter. Just pinpointed your problem. What you just diagnoist can be easilly checked just by taking other good known speaker. If that works your speaker is short check for audio output wires. If not your card needs replacement. If need further clarifications just comment.

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.

I wasn't sure if you were looking for the manual (connection instructions). If so, here's the manual:
It's possible that your computer doesn't have the proper connections to connect these speakers. If that's the case you will need to upgrade your sound card.
I hope this helps and I which you the best of luck!!

The problem that developed with my Creative Gigaworks and other is that occasionally it would not play at all. When the problem occurred, I could eventually get it to work again by turning it on and off several times. I opened up the powered unit (the Right speaker with the controls and found that the wires were really crammed in there, such that a white ribbon wire connector on the bottom was straining to the point of where it was slightly cracked. While playing audio through it, if I touched that wire ribbon, the sound would cut out. So I adjusted the wires slightly to relieve any tension force on that connector and it has not had the problem since. I would open up that unit and check for a similar poor or strained connection. To open the unit, carefully pull off the fabric speaker cover straight off, remove the 4 rubber inserts in the top 4 holes, and remove all 6 philips-head screws in those deeply recessed holes.
