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.

first fuse as standard is in the plug to the power adapter. The second fuse is located at the back of the box where the power lead goes into. It is covered so look closely you just need something flat to open it. I have the S750 and that is what im basing this on but if the s700 is the same then you will find this helpful. Sorry did not notice this before.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have a Gigaworks 750,
I did fix this problem and the whole bunch of other ones with the s750 system.
"light is flickering" is a very common! It shows that there is a problem with STANDBY power supply:
1) Yellow glue became conductive (needs to be completely removed)
2) Capacitor malfunctioning C61 (68uF 450)
3) mine had TH1 cracked (replaced from PC power supply) and D9 diode.
If this successfully fixed, you will be able to get 2nd stage power supply on (Relay or power on button)
If you will have problems there, there is a whole bunch of test needs to be done (capacitors, IRF740 etc.)

I wasn't sure if you were looking for the manual (connection instructions). If so, here's the manual:
It's possible that your computer doesn't have the proper connections to connect these speakers. If that's the case you will need to upgrade your sound card.
I hope this helps and I which you the best of luck!!
