My sony dvd player/vcr won't stop blowing fuses

My dvd player/vcr won't quit blowing fuses. It was struck by lightening and I opened it up and right near the cord on the inside there is a fuse and it keeps blowing all the fuses I put in it the second I plug it in. Please can someone help me by giving me an idea of how to fix it myself or if I can't, an idea of how much it will cost to get it fixed? Thanks! Julianne

If it got hit with a massive power strike, I wouldn't bother putting a penny into its repair. A TV, maybe, but not a DVD/VCR combo.

There could be any number of parts that got fried, and by the time you replace them all, your end cost with labor will probably be greater than the price of a new unit bought from the store.
