'TH' is a common abbreviation for 'thermistor' and they are used to dampen surge current into a supply when first turned on.

Because their purpose in life is to be variable, you will have to get information from the manufacturer if nothing is visible any more on the part.

Typical values if it is used in this manner are ~20 ohms cold and a few ohms or less once hot.

Size determines the peak power rating and they can be very small (2-3 mm) for some applications, and up to ~ 25 mm for others.

The type used in this manner is termed 'negative temperature coefficient' as its value decreases with heat.
There is, of course, also the type that increases with heat, then a 'positive temp-co.'

Depending on the state of destruction of it, you can often get a rough estimate of its range by measuring a fragment with an ohmmeter; this will tell you only if the part is a lower or higher resistance type as they are made in the kilo-ohm range too for other uses.

If I had to guess; I would use a larger one (~20-25 mm) and a cold resistance of ~ 25 ohms at 23 degrees C and a cold resistance (this is less critical) of 2 ohms or less.

Keep in mind - this part may be a victim! While they do fail alone on occasion, you may have a shorted component that forced that part to act like a fuse.

Should i change a burned resistor for a better one?

It sounds like you have other problems that're causing that resistor to get too hot, Angie. Carefully check for any other components that are also getting hot when that resistor gets hot.

Motherboard Problem

What type of motherboard do you have?? Brand and model. After you find it out search the web for a manual. Then open up your pc check the cables which go from PSU to Motherboard and check if they are connected properly (See on manual the correct positions ) :D . Hope i helped

I have a 1999 plymoth voyager mini van we just had the third ignition coil in the last month what could be causing this th fail?

Check the voltage on the base of the coil. Coils come it 2 voltages. There is the straight 12 volt coil and there is a 12 volt start but runs on 7.5 volts. The 7.5 volt has a resistor in the system and if you are fitting these coils instead of the 12 straight coil they will burn out. There will be 2 wires to one terminal of the coil and you can check the voltage with a multimeter In the start position there will be 12 volts and when you let the key back to the run position read the voltage and fit the correct coil

I have jvc-th50.the power is burn.possible to fix it? how to make it working again?

This depends on the extend of the damage.If the board is carefully analysed and if you can sort out the damaged parts take a reading. Check the ouputs that have failed, check into the next stage below till you come to see that all the componets that were burned were identified. If you are able to idetify the value of the burned components, there is no issue but if not we have a real this case you must seek help with a servicea manual .If only thepoweer transistors/ resistors have blown you can go for the replacement provided you feel confident to go along after the components are replaced.In the first place I never asked how this had happened. was it overloading or otherwise? hope I could Help. Good day.

Something is shorted on the circuit board, could be anything - switcher power transformer, rectifier diodes (or a bridge), resistors, blown, dried, leaked or shorted electrolytic capacitors in the power supply section, possibly any other shorted components in any other section.

If you're lucky, there will be visible damage to the faulty component, otherwise you will need to measure the components to find a short.

Anyway, it could be something as simple as a shorted diode or resistor in the power supply section, but i can't say anything for sure.

Hope you can get it fixed...

ATX-300GU PSU: 32V around Q4/Q5 circuit

could just be the regulating power transistors are burned out or one of their biosing components, there a few meaty capacitors that may be causing a surge, but the safe thing to do would be to start with a new one, the reason is, modern drives are so sensitive that you could blow their circuitry and then lose the harddisk! All the best - the Yeti

Technika TV LCD26-207 died in service

I know the cause of the fault is R983 - it appears to be a pullup resistor that kickstars the PSU. If you look you will find its slightly burnt. I dont know the value of this resistor. But if you connect a 60w mains lamp in place of the resistor the standby light will light then can start the set by pressing one of the buttons on the side of the set. If anybody knows the value please let us know. The part will only be pennies. Keith

Burnt out

If you are technically savvy, you could check for poofed components in the power supply. Possible bad parts include fuse, switching transistor(s), small resistors, and other components. Sometimes when one component fails, it will take some others with it, depending on the circuit design, and exactly how & what blows up. Electrolytic capacitors often ooze a bit, or bulge when they fail. If you see one like that, it should be replaced as part of the repair.
