JBL Creature 2 Blowing Fuse

I brought a JBL Creature 2 speaker system in black off ebay hoping it to be a simple fix. As soon as i hook the adaptor up to the main unit, the fuse in the adaptor blows the moment its turned on. When the transformer is off load I.E not connected to anything it has a steady voltage and the fuse if fine.
I tried to replace the fuse in the adaptor but it blows up every time.

The adaptor is an 18v 3.5A with a 5A 250V Fast blow fuse.

    I guess i have to assume its the fuse in mine as well. It worked fine for quite some time but where would i even get a new fuse?

There will be a short somewhere in the power supply. If you replace the fuse it will blow again. You COULD try a larger ampage fuse, but any electrician would not recommend this!

JBL CREATURE II soundspeakers are dead without power


When the power to the system was applied to the speakers before you realized the cables were chewed, you blew some components in the power boards to the speakers. You could look to see if there are replaceable fuses. Otherwise a trip to the repair shop or new speakers.

Can JBL Creature 2 speakers work on a Samsung smart tv


Do you happen to have the model of the TV? My Samsung only has two digital optical outputs. If your'e plugging in JBLs, you may only have an analogue input which won't work.

Just moved and was disappointed to find that they my Creature speakers don't work from my MacBook Pro . Also don't work from ipod so it seems like a speaker issue? They have worked before on both...


It must be a power adapator problem. Most of the power adaptors do not have a indicator to show you if its working. Is the power indicator on the subwoofer module working if not I am right about the adaptor.

How do the wires go into the back of the creature?


First go to this site and download and install this codec pack. Also, make sure you have your speakers set as you default sound device.


JBL Creature 2 are a computer speaker system designed and sold by JBL. The system is made up of two satellite speakers and an omni-directional subwoofer. The speaker system connects directly to a computer's available sound card output jack or a laptop's stereo output jack. Occasionally, problems can occur with the sound quality and connection with the speaker system. If there is no sound coming from the speakers, check the cable connections. Ensure the satellite speakers are firmly connected to the matching jacks on the back of the Creature's subwoofer. The connections are color coded and, in addition, each speaker connector is shaped differently to fit only into one jack. Ensure the output cable is firmly connected to the subwoofer audio in jack and the computer's audio-out jack. Ensure the power button on the back of the subwoofer is pushed inward. If everything is connected properly, the green lights on the underside of the satellite speakers will glow.If there is still no sound, tap the right-hand side audio-increase button on the right satellite speaker until sound is heard. Also ensure there is audio playing from the computer. Double check the lower right-hand side of the window's main screen and look for a speaker icon. If the icon has a red slash over it, click the icon and uncheck the "mute" option.


Hope this helps

No power to computer speakers


if the cable is fixed correctly then it would seem when your dog chewed through the cable the cables met and caused a power short out that has blown some of the internal electronics components there fore the unit will not work. taking into consideration the price of jbl creature speakers it would be cheaper to replace the unit than to have repaired ..

i hope this helped
