WANTED resistor
i need a power resistor for an rca victor coffee table tv
model N2026
its the one ceramic disc with two solder dots on each side

Oh for the love of god, just post the value of the resistor and make it easy. Or is this going to turn out like your WANTED flyback? We still don't know anything about what you wanted.

Sounds like a Thermistor to me, it controls the surge at turn on.
If that's the case you can get them from Mouser
You need to know what the amperage is to know which one to get.

I used a CL-90 in my Predicta because I had read that was what others had used, it might be OK for the RCA or it might not depending on the amperage being passed through it.

Hey the set is setting in my shop and johnny wants to try and fix it him self we are not sure what the number on the part is because it is burnt up so is there any suggestions on what to do about this finding out a sams because we do not have one.. Timothy

HEY! i found one today!

What was the part? If resistor, what's the value?

we dont know they were all made the same and there the only ones that look like it. its a black ceramic disc with 2 solder dots on each side. only one like it its a hard to find resistor

Picture? I just don't want this turning into another thread like your flyback, which you still provided nothing informative for.

It's just, what you described doesn't even sound like a resistor. So we need pictures. Numbers, anything on it. No vague descriptions this time. Your reputation depends on it! :D

my camera isnt working right now give me a munute to search for a picture

radiotron 11-23-2012 09:18 PM

no i cant find a picture sorry but i still got one!

well i described it best i could
its black so solder wires coming not off the bottom but the very middle of the disk. and thats it.

lnx64 11-23-2012 09:33 PM

?? That's a thermistor.

its really close to that about penny size
but where the wires touch the disk theres big solder drops

The only thing I can possibly think you have is a zinc oxide varistor. But those aren't rare at all.

But what's the value? Please tell me you didn't just install a resistor without knowing it's value. :nono:
