    I've a cassette recorder with a fuse resistor that has gone open
    circuit. I've not come across such a device before and don't know if
    I can find a replacement easily (I'm in the UK). The service manual
    shows it to be 3.3 ohms and 1/2w, with a voltage drop of 1 volt across
    it.

    Can I replace it with 3.3 ohm resistor and a 500ma fuse ?

    Thanks
    Rob

    300ma would be closer ! But fusible resistors are available from
    Farnell, Radio Spares, Digikey etc etc...

    Thanks Baron - 'Fusible resistor' is clearly the right term; I got no
    usable hits with Fuse Resistor, but am getting what I need with
    Fusible ....

    Cheers

    You might have better luck searching for a "fusistor" - that is what Fluke
    Electronics calls them.

    You probably could. I think Farnell should stock them but you need to be a
    registered customer to place small value orders.

    Never heard that term ever. Fusible resistor is the usual one.
