Having problems with your Creative Labs Gigaworks S750 Computer Speakers ?

Power light blinks, control pod wont power on and no audio

\015 I have the exact same problem as everyone else here. the systme ran fine for like 7 months and all of a sudden it blew! i emailed creative threatened them with trade standards and they very promptly provided me with a new sub, without taking the last one away. a blatant admission of guilt. 2 weeks after i recieved that one the replacement blew! i am on my third bass sub now and the tell tale signs are starting to show 3 days in. the volume control pod takes two presses to turn on. it turns on then immidiately turns itself off again. this is what preceded the blow out last time. the fault seems to be something to do with the control pod not the amp itself. my recomendations is if you are having these problems are seeing the telltale signs that i just described then pack up your system and throw it in the bin if its out of warranty. if not get onto them just like i did and be sent replacement after replacement until the warranty runs out or you get fed up with them.\015

Answers :

It seems that this problem has occured many times and I have hunted down an answer:

The glue within the amp turns brown when in contact with high temperatures. This brown substance is actually conductive, therefore you get currents all over the place and eventually blows your amp.

The fuse will also blow, requiring you to replace that.

To fix this, you either install fans (costly?) or use it in a cool/cold room. Either should work, but do not go buying the worlds biggest fans, as it may not be the case for all of you unhappy customers out there.


Hope this helps,
