    Hi,
    I am a new member and appreciate any help given.
    Question: Can anyone identify the value of this 5 band resistor?
    Colour bands are equidistant from each other and hence I can't decide whether to read left to right or right to left.

    Bands: Black - Gold - Gold - Black - Brown

    This resistor is fitted on the primary section of a tablet adapter charger and is fitted after AC input before the Bridge Rectifier.

    When checked with a Digital meter I got NO readings of value (could be open!!!).

    Thanks in advance for your assistance.

    Looks like a 1 ohm metal film resistor being used as a fuse.

    seems to be intentionally shorting.

    BN BK GD GD BK is the correct way

    I agree with debe ..... it is in the live line between the wire to the board and the bridge rectifier

    what specifically did the meter real ? 0L or 0.0 .. 1.0 - 0.1

    if 0L then yes the resistor is open circuit


    have no idea what you mean by that ??

    Once the meter was turned on the reading was 1.
    On checking the resistor, it still read 1.
    I wasn't sure whether the meter was reading correctly so I rechecked it against a good known value resistor and it read correctly.
    So I rechecked the resistor in question and still read 1.

    show us a pic of your meter with the resistor connected :)

    just so we know you have it in the correct setting
