Question about Creative Labs Gigaworks S750 Computer Speakers
If you check the Creative forums there is a thread there where a few people have started to fix problems like this permanently and they have helped quite a few people fix their problems. I would only suggest checking it out if you have any electronics experience (soldering, and basic troubleshooting minimum). Otherwise I would send it back but keep in mind that this is one of a few common problems with the S750's and you are likely to have other problems in the future unless you take measures to fix the problem that creative has not.
I would also like to point out that your problem would be a short on one of the amp boards after the power regulators, very likely one of the STA575 amplifier ICs. Those are not easy to find but it is possible to find replacements.

There isn't much you can do I'm afraid. If you were still in warranty Creative would replace the sub.. but as I found 2 months out of warranty, they really didn't want to know. Their solution was buy a brand new system. This problem of the subs "blowing up" can happen from the moment you first turn it on to a few years down the line. My system had never been over half volume, and was well looked after. Such a nice product, sound is great! BUT, with the risk of it blowing up at any moment... I just cant find it in my heart to blow another £300 on one. Creative do not recognise there is a fault with the system, even though hundreds or even thousands of people have the same problem. Their customer support really sucks!! I love creative products, but I cant see me buying any more of them. They are a giant let down. Awesome product while it lasts, **** service, **** internal components, **** support, **** company. A real shame.

The Amplifier or its power pack has failed. I would not know of a repair possibility[No user serviceable parts in side] is usually stuck some where on the units like this because they are integrated boards and service is by replacement. If it is of recent purchase get onto whomsoever you got it from.
