just a little update. I tried pulling the fuse out of the basslink itself and as I was doing it huge sparks started to fly just by barely touching the fuse. When I wiggle the fuse with my finger I see big sparks start going everywhere. Definately isn't a reassuring thing. (the sparks come from the fuse holder) there realy shouldn't be any sparks when pulling/installing the fuse, right/ Atleast on all my other amps it has never done that.

umm if its still connected to the battery it would spark when putting in pulling out. if its sparking from just touching it in the fuse holder then its loose and not making a good connection on the fuse. sparks can be scary but its just arcing the currnet through before it gets a good connection and if the current was too strong it would definately take out the fuse. so expect sparking if battery is connected.

check out that fuse from the Basslink. I went to go do some troubleshooting today and saw the fuse is now melted. Hmm. That can't be a good thing. I'll try picking up some more fuses (20 amp) befoer work and try putting in a new fuse tomorrow morning. I doubt it'll help though but I really hope it does.

tried 2 other fuses on it. they blow the instant you put them into it. It has now become one huge paper weight. Tried taking the damn thing apart but it won't come apart. I took all the screws out of it and it won't pull apart. I could probably try prying around the edges but don't really want to risk gouging the plastic if I do send it in. They probably would refuse to fix it if they thought I had opened it up. The circuit board on the face of it is already sunk in where you plug all connections in, and I can't get it to come back up to the surface. I'm just really fed up with the thing and threw it back into it'* original box where it'll probably now stay. I might think about getting one from cardomain but I'm just a little bitter right now that I only got to use this one for 5 minutes.

ok, I was able to get the basslink apart and here are a few pictures of it. In the last picture I think I found the problem. the board is burned right? Looks like it did short out somehow internally. :( Only question is how and why did it happen? any other insight? Thanks. :(
