I'm not sure if I'm asking the right kind of question for this site. But if someone could help me, I'd be grateful:
I blew a 125V 2.5A fuse in my home stereo head unit. I couldn't find that fuse at any stores nearby, but I was told 250V 2.5A would work just fine. I bought those but when I went to install it, I noticed I bought 3/4" size but need 1" size.
Even though it's too small to fit in the fuse clamp, I figured it would still work if I drop it in there and have the metal touching on both sides. My stereo powers up like it's working again, but now I get no sound; just humming from my speakers. I've checked all the speaker wires, they look fine.
Is this because the fuse is too small, or does it sound like i have another problem?
