Question about Audio Players & Recorders
SOURCE: amp keeps blowing fuse
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.

SOURCE: Gigaworks S750
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.

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.
