Megaworks 550d doesn't switch on


Step 1:

i had same problem with my magaworks 5.1 thx550.
i have tried to find solution in web but it was only one which voltage sense resistor 2Mohm track in PCboard was damaged.
after check PCboard in my megaworks thx 550 i found that tracks are quite well and voltage sense resistor is well too.

Step 2:

REPAIRING PROCEDUREin below items there are repairing procedures that i did with my THX550.to access to BCboards it is required to remove electronic boards from woofer case.
1- remove cover of woofer.2- remove woofer speaker from case by cutting and marking connected wires.
3- remove all Philips screws around cover and remove electronic parts smoothly, care about glues around power cord.4- remove and disconnect power supply board from other parts.


3_12_2013_7_45_42_am.jpg5- replaced switcher TOP234Y and capacitors C102, C206, C205 and D10 as below photos.3_12_2013_8_08_28_am.jpg6 check all of related tracks in repairing area.3_12_2013_8_10_00_am.jpg


3_12_2013_8_48_15_am.gif7- now it is time to re assemble electronic parts very carefully and prepare for test. it is better to use isolated transformer and put a lamp in serial to protect PCboard against short circuit. if green LED (POWER LED) is on it means that every thing is O.K.
8- in this step all of electronic parts should return back to case and reconnect sub woofer connections.3_12_2013_9_02_39_am.jpg

Step 3:

after replacing damaged parts my THX 550 is working well maybe for next 10 years.
i hope above mentioned instruction can be useful and helpful.

Woofer 4650 carcit digram


Establishing computer speakers includes networking to the devices from where media from be derived either as computers stereos of media players. First, the speakers require connection established between each component sound producing device that has an impression in generation capacity. Second, the speaker device have a box usually the woofer as central area with power cuicuit features. Connectable cables are power cuicuit related expected to extend from the woofer to the power outlet. Also, the woofer board would require as last connectivity, the cable attacchment to the devices that produce sound either as stereo music medis players, digital media displayers among mentionable media devices.

Megaworks THX 550 does not power up


I was able to repair my sytem using the guidelines from pouakai at (http://forums.creative.com/t5/Speaker-Systems/Successful-repair-of-MegaWorks-THX550-power-supply/m-p...


My system also would not turn on. The problem was on the power PCB - the one with the two large heat sinks attached. I found that the piece of PCB track joining the 2M ohm resistor (connected to the LINE-SENSE pin of the TOP243Y switcher) to the positive output of the full-wave bridge rectifier, was broken. This could have been caused by corrosion from the glue (which covered that section of track). I also replaced the 2M (0,5W) ohm resistor, just incase it was also to blame. The 2M ohm resistor is located under one of the two black heatsinks. I used a short piece of wire to replace the PCB track (from the large filter capacitor next to the resistor) to the 2M ohm resistor. Plugged everything back in, and it worked!


The circuit diagram given on page 21 of the TOP234Y's data sheet was very useful, and helped me understand how the circuit functioned.


I hope this is heplful for others who have this "no power" problem!

I need Creative speaker driver and didn't want driver detective.


there are no drivers for speakers as they are strictly an out put device. if you need drivers to get sound out of your speakers. then you need the drivers for your sound card. to get those you can download them for free from the manufacturer of your pc website if you did not install a sound card yourself. if you installed a sound card yourself then you can get driver free from the manufacturer of your sound card. other than that your speakers should work.

hope this helped.
please remember to rate me.

My creative megaworks thx 550 does not power on anymore


ok, so far, you said you checked the power cables and switch and they seem ok. But i have run into a simliar problems with some equipment i use. Sometimes a plug may go out of a strip, but not take out the entire strip( have that problem with a power strip right now actually, in the process of fixing that)

Also, im not sure what kind of Cabinet you have, so i dont know what to really suggest other than to find either the model of your cabinet and pull up the building spec's on it, if it comes with its own cabinet or contact the manufacturer.
Without having either a picture or name and product number. I dont feel i can really help otherwise with the problem.

Please be more detailed. I would be glad to help all i can, but more details will be required

Digital out peters with odd blipping noises then stops outputing.


Hello there
First things first:

* this is a creative labs speakers models sub problem**
if you have warranty I suggest you use, Creative is alert on this kind of pop up sounds and others, concerning the subwofers.
time to RMS, or fix on house or other person who can change some resistors on the SUB.
other than this, ...just change for CREATIVE 7800 speakers, are good, and they correct this issue on this ones, I got it and I have 3 years with them and no problems.
good luck
