Having problems with your Creative Labs Gigaworks S750 Computer Speakers ?

Fuse blows after turning on control center

\015 I have the same problem as these other people. I replace the fuse, then go to turn on the subwoofer. The subwoofer turns on fine (green light on back is on), however when I hook everything up and turn on the control center, everything immediately turns off. I go to check the fuse on the back of the sub, and it is completely fried. I have replaced at least 5 fuses, and tried multiple power sockets... still get same result. Does anyone know what is going on and can help out?!\015

Answers :

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
What you have there is a defected system. What you need to do is take it in and get it replaced if it's under warranty still. If it's out of warranty then you will have to buy a new system. The power converter that is in the unit has gone bad and is not doing the job that it's supposed to do.
