    Hello everyone,

    I'm new here and I have a really generic question. I purchased a thumb joystick in the hope of build a zoom controller for my video camera. I built one a few years back but I want to build another one with a zero return function. That joystick is perfect for what I want to do but unfortunately, it's only a 10k potentiometer and I need it at 20k. The camera's controller is analog so if it receives 0k it zooms in, at 10k it's neutral and 20k it's zooms out.

    Is there a way I can modify it so I can get these values. Right now it's almost 10k and at neutral it's 5K. Can I put a resistance in parallel and which value should it be?

    thanks in advance..


    P.S I'm a total newb. I can solder stuff together... :eek:
