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.

I have a Creative Gigaworks S700 i have checked both fuses still no power to control box


Stupid question: does the sound still work? it could be the LED just died after continual use (rare, since they last a long time, but not uncommon).
If not... it could be the controlling circuit board died. In which case, unless you have electronics repair experience, it would be probably more worthwhile to just replace the speakers, as pricey a model as it is.

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.

I have a Creative Gigaworks S700 (subwoofer) with no power out. LED off. Fuse ok.


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.

Fuse blows after turning on control center


I have a similar problem on the Gigaworks S750 system. Upon opening, I have found that the IC driving the switch mode power supply becomes basically a short, and that the transformer becomes damaged as a result there of as well. Then you have about 22 Ohms connected to your mains (after the bridge rectifier) which causes the fuse to blow. Is there anyone that can assist with a circuit diagram for this system, or of contact details as to where I can find out what the specifications of the transformer is? Can not seem to find any technical assistance in South Africa

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.

Creative S750,all speakers distorted


Your problem sounds like it is the high voltage power supply not working. I would start by checking the IRF740 MOSFETs on the power supply board. Below I have pasted a link to a forum thread about fixing the Gigaworks S750 systems. There is a lot of information there about the problem you are experiencing as well as complete diagrams of the power supply and good pictures.
