Question about Creative Labs Inspire 6600 Computer Speakers
Ive had my Creative Inspire 6600 speaker system for several years and its always worked "fine". However in the last couple months the speakers started making popping noises until it finally died. One night I had no problems what so ever and after turning my computer, the next day the sound system simply didnt work. The sound card was fine, as I could plug head phones into the computer itself to listen to things.
A friend and I took it apart and found no obvious visual problems. (Shorts, burns, blown fuses etc). It still did not work. After about 2 weeks, I was able to get it to work again, but it is already starting to make that same popping noise again. My current temporary solution is to use it only for a few hours then unplug the system all together in hopes of prolonging its life.
Im hoping to get some sort of idea of replacing or any sort of fix to this problem. I cannot afford to simply buy a new system, so Im hoping that I could get some help, please. If not I will be blamed for it breaking down.
The problem is a burned transistor inside the subwoofer. It depends of country's transistor manufacturer. It is supposed to be of a low quality. It's not important for the scope. Mine is knocked down for a year. I saved the electronic schematic diagram and the transistor specs, but lost. I confirmed the cause opening the subwoofer and examine the board. The indicated transistor surrounded area is burned indeed. If anyone find the article in web, please, post here.

Mine is dead, tried a 13.5 volt diff. amp adapter to no avail. The internal fuse was fine also. Couldn't find any support from mfr.

Ok, I have the 5300 model, that I won years back on the Creative site, and has being doing this to me too!, does the power led on the volume control dim when it does this? on yalls?, on mine it dims, comes back on, and sounds ok, then speakers pop, and crackle and start sounding really bad!, someone please help!, by the way, lucco... are your talking about the voltage regulator? the transistor? If I replace it, will it work again??? please someone help!!!, I have no $$ to buy new speakers! (good ones with 5.1!)
