When ac power bypasses fuse?

Have this Technics SA-GX350 here from a yard-sale.
I downloaded the manual, which is always nice. Thanks Panasonic!
This manual shows the fuse being in the power cord, while this cord that came with it has no fuse. I guess this is the reason it wasn't working for them either. Get power, but just a barely audible noise from the left front speaker at full volumes, while no noise from right speaker. (Difficult to take off case b/c the screws are tight)...
Do you think the problem is because there is no 5-amp fuse in the plug?
I don't know of 5-amp plugs, but I could search power strips.
Thanks.

Sorry but this sounds confused or muddled.

A fuse is what it is and is not a required part for operation. I fear you may be in trouble as what you wrote makes it sound as if you don't work in this field and given the LETHAL VOLTAGES you are exposed to I suggest you get it fixed instead.

An electronics tech or engineer would not ask this. So I'm left to guess you are in over your head and since there are LETHAL VOLTAGES exposed at this point you should have it fixed.

For example, that cable noted at http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=suicide%20cable is a common item in their kit. But would they ever lend it out or help you make one? No.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
