Creative Labs Speaker System Failure

  Hong 15:51 27 Sep 2005

I have a Creative Inspire 5.1 5300 Speaker System on my Evesham Computer. When starting the Computer the Sound goes off after about a minute, with a 'Thud' and the light goes out on the Volume Control.
I have checked the Sound Card output with Headphones and there is no problem.
I assume that the problem lies either with the Powered Woofer or the Power Adaptor.
It is out of warranty and I am loathe to buy a new set of speakers for the sake of one failed item.
Any thoughts.

I had a similar system and a similar problem - after a short time of being on the powered woofer shut down with a thud. It was traced to a poor connection in the wired remote volume/balance control. If you have such a thing, give it a jiggle about.

Many thanks for your suggestion, I took the back off the Volune Control and jiggled things around.
It has stayed working for the last 30 minutes.
Thanks again.
