    I have someting that looks like a resistor but different. It is white with black ends and wire at each end. On it reads: 0.22(ohm symbol)K 1/2W 331. Any ideas? I can't seem to find it anywhere?

    Hi Rebelroxy (sounds tigerish)
    did you test it with your multimeter? Perhaps it really is a 0.22 ohm resistor. Or it might just be a 220 Ohm resistor, as in 0.22 kiloOhms. I met some like that once. If the multimeter doesn't help a photo might be good, especially if you can also show where the part came from.
    :)

    I did take my multimeter to it but it reads open leading me to belive that it is bad.

    yup its a 0.22 Ohm 1/2 Watt resistor. if its open cct then its definately popped
    just an old style type

    cheers
