2.2 ohm 2 watt resistor

How can i make one 2.2 ohm , 2 watt resistor by puting two smaller ones together, if that can be done, I am trying to fix a tv set that calls for the 2.2, but RadioShack doesnt seel that size, but they do sell smaller sizes

I pluged in a 12v LED light to a 110v outlet, how can i fix the light

It's probably not repairable. You may have to replace all the limiting resistors and LEDs.

My DC jack broke what should i do.

I am assuming you mean the DC jack on the motherboard in your laptop?
You can repair it yourself, or take it to a repair shop and pay to have someone do it.
To repair it yourself, you'll need:
1) A new DC jack (though sometimes you can fix the broken one)
2) The disassembly guide to your specific model of laptop. Google the phrase "laptop make/model disassembly" and one should come up pretty quickly. Guides are generally step-by-step with pictures included, and putting it back together is just the reverse of disassembly.
3) A soldering iron and solder. 15-30 watts for delicated boards like a motherboard. Once you've pulled your motherboard out, You can de-solder the broken DC jack from the motherboard (if necessary) and solder the new one on. DC jacks are generally 2-4 solder points and fairly simple to press back on.

How to determine a good or bad resistor?


First of all you need to know the resistor value and tolerance. This can be found here:

Secondly, with most resistors you would need to de-solder one end of the resistor.

Finally, you measure the resistor with a mutimeter set on the Ohms setting.

If you are lucky enough to access a Huntron Tracker, you can get a good idea without de-soldering one end.

There are many good videos on youtube that may be of help. Here is just one:

Good luck. Thanks for using Fixya.

My pc with EliteGroup P4VMM2 Motherboard didnot turn on but the fan and of cpu are working but wont open! what shoul i do? pls email me @

verify that the monitor is working if you can. Is the hard drive lite lighting up, If not try removing and reseating the ram. if the hd lite in on then it would sound like the graphics card is out, try replacing it.

ECS PT800CE-A 3.4 P4 HT CPU and DDR400 (PC3200) problems

I seem to be unable to find any information about what an ERAND error even is. No one is really identifying it on the net. One thing you may try though is to find out if the bios settings are maybe causing this. Is the system overclocked at all? Are the voltages correct? Maybe try resetting Bios to default settings and trying again.

Hi! Folks I need to identfy the SOIC-8 IC that lies between the 2 an 3 pci slots. In my board this IC burns up and became unreadble. Thanks a lot for any help.

That style of package is used mostly for terminating resistors and small-value capacitors. The fact that is burned indicates resistors so you may be able to remove it and try measuring between first and/or last pins to those between. If you get a couple of close values, it is probably a seven resistor pack. In some configurations though, the common pins are not at the end(s) some you may have to experiment and measure between pins until you ferret the arrangement out. Measuring (for example) between two pins that yield 2K Ohms when others are 1K Ohm likely means that the 2K Ohm stretch is two 1Ks in series.
These normally don't fail on their own so something burned them and may do it again even if replaced.

2 RAMs are not getting detected together -- Intel D101GGC

hi im josh in cebu phils. friend no setting to be modified the problem is in *********** can not detect two memory at a time especially having different value. coz when the memory works it will swap since one of the memory is hgher it will create to avoid such problem you choose to use the same value of memory in both memory banks. like if youre using 256 of the 1st memory bank use alson 256 for 2nd memory bank. then try to use the same brand for better. good luck!

sorry mate, you're talking about microwelding/soddering with resistors. You aren't going to find anyone who can reconnect that with out damaging the board. Just buy a new motherboard.

Computer Build Problem

Try taking out the mobo and ps out of its casing, lay it on a table, hook things together and power it up. I had some problems before caused by mounting studs or try insulating all stubs from the mobo. hope this will help.
