DENON 2910 Power Problem "Fuse keeps blowing"

Denon 2910 that I had for 4 years - stopped working - with no display of anykind. It was obvious that power was not reaching the console. Opened the cover (as it was out of warranty and could cost me a fortune to run to the dealer!) - there is a "T1.6AL/250V" fuse on the board next to where power cord entering the circuit board - which was blown. Repalced it with a similar fuse - and turned the power on -"boom" - the fuse is blown again!.

It is obvious that the fuse has protected my $ 780/- precious player - but what else could be the problem ? is this user repairable ? there is a thick "white" ring - through which the power lead loops through - before it runs along and enters the circuit board. Something should be faulty with that "ring" - which persumambly "cleans" the current - what is it ? any idea as to it's make/ model number ? should I try and replace it ? It looks like a simple soldering job ....HELP!!

That looks like a filter to stop any interference and as you say clean things up. There won't be anything wrong with it.
It's going to have to go in for repair, as it sounds like something is short circuiting.
Don't be tempted to replace the fuse with a bigger one as you'll only cause more damage.

Thanks a lot - you were totally right - had to take it to the repair shop - the main "power board" had to be replaced - luckily they had it and did it at a very reasonable charge. The cause - "electric arc" probably caused while plugging in / out of another appliance (Wii) by my son on the main power extension board, while the Denon was still plugged in - causing erratic power surge!!....lesson to be learned - the hardway :)

Badger - thanks mate !!
