I have this same problem. You have blown the internal amp. I have had 2 of these do the same thing. There is nothing you can do but report it to infinity and try to get the unit replaced.

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.

check the cable between your sub and the receiver for short circuit and if the cable is ok you will have an problem in the printed board.

SOURCE: AR1 Subwoofer Keeps Blowing the 5 Amp Fuse

Well, so far so good. I reinstalled the newly repaired amp and fired it up and so far, so good. Ran it through about an hour of fairly intense break-in tracks and then ran it through about 2 dozen power up and down cycles to try to get it to fail (better now than a month from now and have to fight them on backing it up).

SOURCE: fuse on subwoofer keeps blowing

Subwoofers draw a tremendous amount of power. With the amount of heat generated by amperage flow and the movement of the voice coil, you may have burned out the coil. Do a resistance check across the coil. Easy check? Temporarily attach another speaker to replace that one. Use LOW VOLUME and slowly work the vol up,and, if the fuse does not blow, it's the other speaker.

Why does the fuse blow Instantly?


Link for the service manual: http://elektrotanya.com/pioneer_vsx-305_405.pdf/download.html On page 50 of the manual (36 of the pdf) it says for the "Sub woofer pre-out jack (Not available on the VSX-305 model) If you want to boost the low frequencies, connect to a subwoofer power amplifier" Your model will not drive a sub-woofer with out another amp. His sub may be a powered sub?

No sound or "green" light


Hi,
Your power supply have a problem. Check the FF:
1. Power cord - might be open due to frequent bending and pulling.
2. Power switch - for open contact.
3. Internal Fuse might be open. If open replaced with exact ratings. If the new fuse blew again this is an indication of shorts in transformer, Rectifier Diode, Main filter capacitor, output IC.
#3 is technical and you must have knowledge in electronics, have tools and test instrument to perform the steps.
Hope it may help you.
Give a thumbs up if you find it useful.
Have a nice day!

Hi there, I have a Philips Home Theater System that recently went out. I few weeks ago I was playing my ipod through the dock when the sound went out and the system became stuck (none of the controls...


Of course it can be repaired, but not by us and maybe not economically. Take it to a tech.

Try disconnecting the speakers and a new fuse. Maybe it's just a speaker shorted. Low probability.

Blows main fuse when power is turned on


Shorted power supply/module is most likely problem.

Just open the unit,find the transformer,the fuse is there only,near the transformer, if you find the fuse check the continuity if not be open,if busted replaced it with identical amperage...
