Help with fuses

Apprently when you're the computer guy/programmer at the office, that also makes you the general repair man. In any even t a lady brought in her dvd player which no longer powers up. I notice that right where the power source comes in to the motherboard, there's a removable fuse. In pulling it out, the fuse looks ok (it's a cylinder with the fuse running through some glass tubing. So if I remove the fuse and test where the fuse was, the light comes on, so a circuit is completing. When I put the fuse back in, the circuit tester stays off. Is this normal or would it indicate that the fuse is bad? I've never really done this before so this is all learning for me and a good way to kill some time.

Is the filament within the tube broken or is it still intact? If the filament is broke replace fuse. Infact replace the fuse anyways. Beyond that buy a new dvd player their cheap nowadays.

look at the fuse.. you should see a wire inside it.. if its complete... or you could also throw an OHM meter on the fuse and see what it says.. good or bad...

The filament looks ok. I've never seen a fuse like this one before, but I think I've dealt with them enough to know a blown fuse from one that's not. Oh well, I'll tell her to try a new one anyway...they should be cheap.
