    Hi I have a Toshiba model SD-1700 DVD player that went dead one night as I was moving it from one location to another .
    I opened up the unit and replaced the 125V 1.6 amp fuse with a 250v 1.6 amp (all they had @ radioshack).
    But as soon as I power the unit it on it blows the fuse immediately.

    Any ideas suggestions?

    I am past my 90 day parts & labor warranty so if I bring it to the shop my 1 year warranty only covers parts! And I was told it could run me between 80-125 dollars as a minimum!

    Can the unit be salvaged?
