Question about Samsung DVD-V3500 DVD Player/VCR
There would likely be a short-circuit in the power supply causing the fuse to continually blow each time it is replaced. Either a faulty IC regulator, and/or several electrolytic capacitors, and/or leaky/short-circuit diodes. This would require attention by an authorised service centre, but it could be expensive (this cannot be repaired by the consumer as some of the components inside are virtually impossible to obtain off the shelf).
Nevertheless, you can submit the unit to a workshop, obtain a quote on the repair cost(s), and a second opinion about the unit itself, before going further. This allows you to make a decision on the information provided by the service technician at the time. Up to you.
As I have mentioned before, Samsung has a habit of using unusual parts in their switchmode power supplies; these parts are often of a strange value or voltage rating, and are unobtainable off the shelf to the public - hence the workshop suggestion above. The PSU may require modification or replacement, but this can only be determined by a technician.

If you forgot your password, press power on from a cold start
with no disc in the unit. Press the REW and F.F buttons
simultaneously on the front panel for 5 seconds. The "reset ok"
message will appear. Press the POWER button and the
DVD-VCR will go to the "Auto Setup" mode. (See page 13)
