JBL Creature 2 Blowing Fuse

I brought a JBL Creature 2 speaker system in black off ebay hoping it to be a simple fix. As soon as i hook the adaptor up to the main unit, the fuse in the adaptor blows the moment its turned on. When the transformer is off load I.E not connected to anything it has a steady voltage and the fuse if fine.
I tried to replace the fuse in the adaptor but it blows up every time.

The adaptor is an 18v 3.5A with a 5A 250V Fast blow fuse.

    I guess i have to assume its the fuse in mine as well. It worked fine for quite some time but where would i even get a new fuse?

I think you made a mistake with your fuse.
With my JBL i can see 9,5A 41FU.

There will be a short somewhere in the power supply. If you replace the fuse it will blow again. You COULD try a larger ampage fuse, but any electrician would not recommend this!

Can JBL Creature 2 speakers work on a Samsung smart tv

Just moved and was disappointed to find that they my Creature speakers don't work from my MacBook Pro . Also don't work from ipod so it seems like a speaker issue? They have worked before on both...

It must be a power adapator problem. Most of the power adaptors do not have a indicator to show you if its working. Is the power indicator on the subwoofer module working if not I am right about the adaptor.

I have a JBL Creature speaker system. One of my tweeters has possibly blown out. how can I get a replacement speaker to reinstall on this system.

I thought my speakers had blown out and they were fixed by just pushing on the black circle inside. The speaker had come loose from the housing- possibly when they fell down or something. Try that before you give up all hope.

Fixing power supply

Hello, sorry for late reply. See last post:
"The power supply casing needs to be prised apart with a flat bladed screwdriver or similar. Takes a bit of doing - might even need a bit of of a hammer."

You have to slightly damage the casing to prise the two halves apart and it won't go back together properly - needs must!
In any case, replacing the fuse doesn't solve the problem as they keep blowing. There is a fault somewhere causing this to happen and that's where I'm stuck.
Anyone else??
