Anything to be done about a blown XO-1 fuse

Hi again,

while investing why an XO-1 wouldn't charge I discovered that the 2A fuse
near the power plug seems to have been blown and was "fixed" by someone
simply soldering over it (see the attached photo).

Now I'm wondering whether there's anything to be done about that or if
that's something that essentially can't be fixed in the field?
