WHAT IS THE VALUE OF RESISTOR R10 IN THE CIRCUIT BOARD?


Look at the color bands, they will determine the value. Last band color is the precision value of the resistor. You can find the color band values on many websites. The size of it tells you the wattage raring.

R5002 resistor value for JVC XV-THD60 Home Theater


Why don't you read the color code? Assuming it's got bands of color painted on it.

I got this one dead. There is a burnt resistor on the main circuit board ( the one with the on/off sw). Would anyone know what value it could be.


Hello,
You can determine the resistors value by reading the color code bands that are marked on it. The following picture is an example of the color codes and there values.

To show you how to read the color codes on a resistor, I am including a link to a video that will explain how to do this easier than I could probably explain it.

I hope this helps you in solving the problem. If you need further assistance please feel free to ask.

If you would not mind, please rate my help. I would greatly appreciate it. Thank You

NEED TO KNOW THE OHMS VALUE FOR RESISTOR ON PEANUT 8685


I have the same problem, but it is open.  The color code Brown - Green - Brown - Gold.  If it is a resistor, the value must be 150 ohms +/- 5%.  To confirm the value, I open the working trimmer and remove one leg from the circuit and measure resistance.  The meter reads only 4 ohms.  Therefore, I think it is an inductor (150uH +/-5%), not resistor.
