Creative Inspire 5200 system won't work

I have a Creative Inspire 5200 5.1 speaker system that was working up to a few weeks ago. The speakers are over 4 years old so they are not covered under warranty.
The LED light comes on when I turn the volume control on so I know the unit is getting power. I don't think the individual speakers are at fault because if I turn the volume all the way up high I can hear really faint white noise that speakers have when turned up loud.
I have tried connecting the inputs on the subwoofer to both my computer and my audio decoder (both of these are outputting sounds, since I can hear sound if I plug my headphones into the same jacks). I'm pretty sure it is the subwoofer/base unit that is not working.
It's such a shame since this was a great speaker system.

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!

My Creative Inspire 5200 speakers are all in working condition. My problem is that I accidentally snapped the connection cable/ wire of one of the speakers. It feels wrong throwing away a working system...

Just pry open the case of the defective speaker, buy a new cable with identical jack from any audio/electronics shop, cut one end and solder it to the speaker. All you will need for that are : screwdrivers, knife and a soldering iron; it's a 15 minute job.

Creative Labs Inspire 5.1 5200 Speaker System

You could test the speakers on another computer or another type of player.
As for testing the speaker itself you might want to open them up and look for rust.. Moisture could have gotten inside and ruined them.
That is the best that I can do.
