Question about Audio Players & Recorders
If you would pls have a look at the blown glass fuse:
1. if there are scorching/burnt/dark marks on the glass housing, then it is most likely that there is a major electronic failure;
2. if the cut of the fuse wire is clean, then chances are the problem is only slight. In some instances, it is also possible that the glass fuse you used is a fastblow whereas the ceramic was possibly slowblow. As the name implies, their reaction time differs.
Additionally, if you were able to use the unit for some time before the fuse blew, it is possible that the unit was driven a tad hard causing the amps to draw higher current from the power supply thereby causing the blown fuse.
If the incident happened right after powering it up for the first time and you were not able to use it even for a while, another possibility to consider is that the unit's input voltage setting is not in accordance with what locally is available in your current location (110/220).
Other than replacing the fuse, I wouldnt recommend doing anything else as the warranty may be void. Having said that, your best bet may then be to contact the dealer and ask for a replacement or repair service.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
