Any Idea on this Resistor?

    Please help identify me the resistor shown in the picture. I am having a hard time looking for it. I can't even figure out its value. Could it be 9 ohms or 9.2 mega ohms. It is part of a power supply of LCD TV. Any help will be highly appreciated. Thank you.

    The details on your photo are not too clear, but assuming the outermost dark band is black, this one must be the last band of a 4 band resistor (5th band is tolerance).
    The sequence white-red-green-silver-black makes this a 9.2MOhm 10% resistor.

    Hi lostdrifter
    welcome to Electronics Point :)

    Harald,
    dont think 9.2 is a standard value

    8.2M is more likely.. grey red green silver black

    Yes, I've noticed that. To me the first band looked more white than grey, but a grey band would directly lead to the 8.2Meg value.

    A more clearer picture. So, it is not a 5 band resistor? The 1st black band confuses me. I think it is not possible to be in the 1st band.

    the black band isnt the first its the last

    I still go with what I said earlier

    8.2M is more likely.. grey red green silver black

    so ... why the interest in that resistor ?
    it doesnt look cooked

    It is an open circuit. It was hit by a lightning surge.

    See if there is another resistor that has the same color coding and measure it to get the exact value.
