    I'm looking for a 1.25A/250V fuse for my VCR. I can't find it at
    the local RadioShack store and they can't order it for me. Where
    might I find one?

    This is a standard value that is available from any electronics supplier.
    Some will list it as 1 1/4A / 250V or 125V.

    If they don't have the 1.25A, you can get away with a 1.5A fuse. If the fuse
    blows, then there is a short in the power supply of the VCR. Normally these
    fuses never blow, unless there are major problems.

    You should be able to get something close just about anywhere.

    Why did the fuse blow? If you don't figure that out first the new one
    will just blow right away.

    More importantly, there is a missing piece of information. When buying your
    new fuse, you need to check its type as well as its rating ie (F)ast or
    (T)imelag

  5. Just use a 1 amp. It will work fine and safely...if it blows as soon as
    it's plugged in , ya got deeper issues.

    He said it's for a VCR didn't he? A fast blow fuse should be fine.
