Audio control pod

When I turn my Gigaworks s750 on, the green LED on the subwoofer comes on, but, the audio control pod stays off. None of the leds come on.

It was working perfectly all the time until I pressed the standby/power button and then all the red LEDs went dead. Omly the green LED on the subwoofer stayed on. I checked the wiring connections and it seems to be correct.

It may be that your led (the one that dosn't come on) may be dead, this will stop functions. these controllers are very cheaply made, even worse if you have the 7.1 surround sound p7800!

I have a similar issue too, but my problem is that the sub has green light, and my control pod has an 'off' light, but it won't turn on :(

I have a Gigaworks 750, the Audio Pod is not working, however, there is power going to the subwoofer though the power light is flickering. Hope you can help me in solving the problem. Thanks


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.)

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 audio, no indicators but blinking green LED by power switch.


Replace elco C61 (68uF/450V) ; it is empty or almost empty.
Also remove the dark-brown glue carefully. The glue turns from light to dark brown by heat and becomes conductive (some Mohms)

All I need is the control pod for the Gigaworks S750


I had an extra one but I sold it. According to creative labs they do not sell any replacement parts for the speaker systems. The best suggestion that I can give is to check craigslist and ebay for the control pods.

Audio control pod seems dead


You can see about getting a new control pod from ebay or craigslist but the problem is more likely inside the subwoofer. Below I have pasted a link to a forum thread about fixing the Gigaworks S750 systems. There is not much information there about control pod problems but at least the people on the thread will help as much as they can. If you are not familiar with electronics then some of the people on the forum thread can help if you are willing to ship the subwoofer box to them.

Sub has died overnight


Change the fuse - located at the 220V input. Use a knife ti release it. Then the system will work again.

Control pod


Double check the connections, if the connection for the control pod is good then something is wrong inside. I would say most likely thing would be a problem on the power supply inside the subwoofer box.
