fuse help


My DVD player died this morning. I opened the top and looked pretty obvious that the fuse had blown. I went searching and can't find this fuse.
125V T1.6A
I see there are 250V T1.6A.
Will that work?
Thanks,
k

It should be OK. But...why did it blow?

I don't know. It was working and then I unplugged it to move the cord and when I plugged it back in I heard a slight pop. It was dead then. When I opened it the fuse is cloudy and black.

Try replacing the fuse, if it blows again, could be anything on the circuit board causing the failure, the servo motor, etc. At that age, I would look at replacing with something newer. We ended up replacing a older unit with a up-scaling, until Blu-Ray players got down in price this past year. For what it is worth, you may end up just having to replace the older unit.

Thank you for your help and advice. I may have to replace/upgrade but I really like this player and hope the fuse is it. I will post back in a few days if all is well.

Fuses blow on equipment, due to overloads. If due to the age, and replacing works, then hopefully that should do it. Also, if you have it plugged into a surge protector, that is quite old, may be time to replace. Keep in mind, that summer time, and some cities power supplies wreck havoc on electronics.
