    Pull out the fuse and see if there is any blackness in the glass or if the wire is broken inside

    The fuse should be held in by a small cap near the power cord. Look for it, pop it out and check to see if it looks burnt, or the filament inside looks broken.

    "It doesn't work" doesn't tell us anything, though. Does the power come on when you flip the switch? Is there any sound coming out whatsoever?

    It's "broken".
    What you need to do now is have it "fixed".
