    Hi from a newbie..Excuse the simple question, but can anyone help identifying this component ( which I have to replace)?...Looks like an older type of resistor??...If so, what would be the value ?( I can't seem to read the colors)...Thanks in advance

    Which out of focus thing are you talking about?

    The big fuzzy one in the middle is a capacitor.

    See here

    orange black yellow black red = 30nF 20% 250V

    This is a capacitor not a resistor.
    Why do you need to change it?
    Mullard made these, I have lost my data book.
    brown 1
    black 0
    yellow 4
    black 0
    red 2
    yellow 4

    So 10000pF = 10nF
    then black 20% tolerance, red 250V ?

    Thanks

    Thanks steve and Duke..That's cleared that up ( yes it's the fuzzy component in the centre...bad photo)...I need to replace it as one of the wires has been ripped out at some stage...Thanks again for the speedy help

    I have not learned to count, I think it is 100000pf or 100n or 0.1uF.
    Please check.

    That is correct, we both made the same mistake.

    I guess it's up to you to decide if that first band is brown or orange.

    However it's far more likely to be brown since 0.1uF is a common value while 0.3uF is not.
