You will need the schematic. Resistor values are sometimes forgiving but a resistor will burn due to an excess of current caused by something else in the circuit. So even by replacing the resistor you will not necessary solve the problem but you can try. Schematics are often found for free on the net. good luck

I need the resistor values used in .gm vat s. nti

if you can see the resistors then you will see that they are coloured coded by a series of different coloured rings around them. Go on line and down load colour codes for resistors and compare each resistor code with the printed results and you will be able to read what is the resistance for each resistor. The colour coding is a universal way of recognizing resistor measurements and is applicable to all resistors.. If in doubt check with you local JAYCAR outlet and it will be explained to you.

Your first clue to going wrong with the repair is that the relay with two extra pins was the wrong type! So you need to look at the old one and read the ratings on it and search the net for one that does match it with the correct number of pins.
As for the resistors you need to read the colour code of them and again search for something the same size. The colour code will tell you the type you need. If you don't know how to read the colour code search on the net for a resistor colour code calculator.
As they look bad I would replace them, even if they did work, they could go dead later.

Resistors burnt out & I cant make out the colour code as they are burnt black. how do I know what resistance they are so I can replace them?

Hello, resistors burnt out, why? If you replace the resistors will the new ones burn out? What you need is a diagram of the unit and you can get the resistance readings from that. But the question still remains, what caused the burn in the first place and have you repaired that?

Resistor colour code. 1st Colour Units 2nd Clolour Tens 3rd Clolour Multiplier
Black = 0
Brown = 1
Red = 2
Orange = 3
Yellow = 4
Green = 5
Blue = 6
Mauve = 7
Grey = 8
White = 9

Hope that helps.

Colour coding of resistors and placing ie R???

Look up "resistor color code" online. The first two color bands are numbers and the 3rd band is how much you multiply the number by. For instance, a Red, Brown, Orange is a 10,000 ohm (10K) ohm resistor, the orange means 3, but 3 digits. If NOT totally burned-up, you can measure the resistor if you disconnect one lead from the circuit.

I have a samsung rear projection tv and it has a burning smell coming from the back of the tv and the colours are all blury

First check the convergence board for burning resistor. If convergence alignment is out, then replace convergence IC.
