    Hi guys, I have recently taken on the task of repairing a friends Tv, It would appear that a resister and a couple of capacitors have died.

    I took the 3 items to a local Maplin store, and 3 guys there couldnt help me identify the parts. Im wondering if anyone here could help. I hope the pics are clear enough for you to help.

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards Nathan

    The first one is a 1500 pF safety capacitor
    The second one is a 2200 pF safety capacitor
    The third one is (probably) a 27.5Ω resistor. Probably because the fifth black band is no standard. Do you check it with a multimeter?

    i am almost ready to work at Maplin store ;)

    If your reply is correct, you are already way above any maplin store employee

    Thanks so much

    The first band is yellow, no? So 47.5

    I would measure the resistance of that "resistor"

    I have a feeling it might not have been a resistor.


    Black is a valid 4th band for inductors.

    A problem with this is that there are 5 bands, and it does not fit the pattern for a 5 band marking (If it has 5 bands, the first one should be silver).

    However, the device doesn't look like a resistor that has gotten hot. If it is open circuit this lends more weight to it being an inductor. Resistors (other than encapsulated wirewound types) tend to heat up and discolour before failure.
