Subwoofer died (again)

First time subwoofer would not work properly, power light flashing randomly & giving off virtually no sound rang creative & they replacrd it straight away, unfortuatly the replacment they sent me was faulty so i rang them back & after 27 30 minute phone calls to ireland they sent me a new one. That has been fine for the last 8 months until now, it is totally dead no power light ect, i have changed the fuse & the lead & still no good. Unfortunatly the warantee has now run out & i cant find a hi-fi technition to touch it. i dont think you can buy just the sub alone, have you any sugestions for repair?
many thanks mark

    I have emailed Creative to see if they can recommend a repairer/service technician. gonna have to wait an see...

    Same problems, same symptoms. Contacted Creative about this - if they can't figure out a solution, I'm going to make sure I let as many people as possible to know how crappy Creative products are. First fuse blew right away, second one lasted a bit longer but the light just flicks and the box doesn't respond to anything.

    Fuse blows out, I've tried a 4amp 250v glass chassis that one exploded. I've tried an alternate kettle plug, no solution there.

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 creative 2.1 channel with sub woofer and 2 speakers (left&right) all of sudden my right speaker is not working left only working then I pluggeg right speaker to left speaker jack in sub...


I have a similar reoccuring problem with the left channel on my speakers. All of a sudden, while playing music or whatever, the left channel jusr dies. Turning the system off and then on again from the conrol unit does not remedy the situation. By chance, I discovered a workaround to get the left channel working again: Push the main power switch of the subwoofer until it almost switches off and then release it so that the power is never actually switched off. Now a click is heard in the system and the left channel comes alive again. This is quite annoying and seems to have something to do with switches in the subwoofer. Low quality components may have been used. I 've been thinking of getting another 2.1 system, but it's not easy to find one... Maybe I should open the subwoofer box and go through the switches and possibly hardwire some connections...

Creative Inspire 5200 system won't work


Hi. Check your speaker system with a different audio device like iPod or any MP3 Player using the same jacks. If the speaker system gives out sounds then nothing is wrong with it... if no sounds come out, then you know what I mean...

Try to replace the speaker of your sub-woofer... maybe that can fix it!

Subwoofer will not play with other speakers


Hello

It looks like you have posted this before. Unfortunately, I don't know what you have tried so I may be repeating some of your earlier troubleshooting.

The subwoofer needs its own power supply to function properly. if it isn't getting enough power, the sub will not work at all.

On the back of the unit, you should see a green LED when the power is turned on. Is this light on all of the time of does it fade / flicker? This would indicate the power supply is going bad and you need to replace it.

NO power in subwoofer, power light will suddenly not turn on.


I got the same problem yesterday. I just unplugged the power from the subwoofer, then plugged today. Now the lights stayed a little longer then yesterday, but goes out again a little later. So I just unplugged and wait ultil tomorrow then I'll try again.

Speakers stopped working


I get such a thing from time to time on different systems. What I do:

1. Open the Sound Control Panel (the one on this present PC is named: "SoundMax Control Panel").
2. Enable or Disable a certain feature (something like "Virtual Theater Surround" or "Virtual Ear" or "Acoustic Environments" or so on).
3. Click Apply and the sound is back in your speakers.
4. If you want, you can undo the enable / disable and the sound still works.

Speaker cable installation


1.  Check the orange multipin connector for bent or broken pins.
2.  Make you have the subwoofer plugged in to a live power outlet.
3.  Check the fuse on the circuit board inside the subwoofer.
4.  Measure the output of the subwoofer power transformer.  I think I remember it as being in the range of 12-24VAC.  Inspect the rectifier diodes for signs of overload.  measure the dc output of the diodes.  I think I remember 18VDC.  
5.  Open the right speaker and verify the on/off switch is working.
6.  New Egg sells a multitude of similar speakers in the $40 to $80 range.
