    Did you replace it with the same type fuse? Did it sound normal before the fuse popped?

    Chances are better that is not the output devices since it didn't make any strange noises/sound different (but not a guarantee of course). Power supply diodes or bridge rectifiers usually fail at turn on, a power supply cap can fail any time. The fact the fuse pops means the circuit is drawing more current than designed and is preventing a fire hazard. I'm afraid you'll need a tech to sus out where the failure is. I hope for you it is something cheap. ;)

    No trouble, we are all spinning on the same big blue ball ;). You know to tell them now no strange sounds or noises so that should help them.
