How do i check resistors?

Answer Disconnect ResistorDisconnect the resistor from the circuit board by de-soldering one end or removing it completely. This will give you a more accurate reading and prevent the voltage of the testin... Read More »

How do I check for bad resistors?

Disable the CurrentUnplug and turn off the device that has the resistor to prevent current from flowing through it. If current is flowing while you are testing it, you may receive incorrect results... Read More »

Resistors help?

No -- the value of the resistor is very important for correct operation of the electronics.Try for SMD resistors or go to Fry's if you have one nearby.

Do resistors contain silver?

The purpose of a resistor is to slow the electric current in a circuit. To do this, they must consist of poor electrical conductors. These include either solid carbon, or wires of rubber strung tog... Read More »

How do i calculate resistors?

Divide the voltage across the circuit by the current running through it, to calculate the resistance of a circuit. For instance, the single resistor in a circuit, with a 9 V power supply and 0.5 A ... Read More »
