# What is the value of the given resistor?

I tried checking with 5 band color code but was unsuccessful. Resistor is blown hence the value cannot be determined using multimeter.

• Are you sure it is blown? It could be an inductor. In any case, you can't usually measure resistors in circuit. – JRE Feb 13 at 6:32
• @JRE the one i shared is the working one yes the resistor is blown and i cannot measure the value and have no working drivers – Amrith Feb 13 at 6:53
• Although you managed to hide the component designator, it does look like it says Rxx, but it would be nicer if you could clarify that. It looks more like a fuse. – pipe Feb 13 at 8:58
• @pipe it is R25 – Amrith Feb 25 at 11:25

It is a fusible metal film resistor which has value of 5.8 ohms with +/- 0.5% tolerance.Reference

• The third band is grey! – user183710 Feb 13 at 15:26
• why is there a huge gap between 3rd band and 4th band? thanks for the reference – Amrith Feb 25 at 11:29
• It's probably just another way of color coding.. – user183710 Feb 25 at 13:42

I don't know if third band is white or gray. 5.8 ohm ±0.5% tolerance.

• for white : 5.9 ohm +- 0.5 tolerance. – mohamad--figo Feb 13 at 6:30
• Third band looks silver to me. – JRE Feb 13 at 6:33
• silver and gold can be used as multiplier only! – mohamad--figo Feb 13 at 6:36
• Third band looks silver to me i have calculated the same 5ohms value but i am not certain – Amrith Feb 13 at 6:46
• yes third band looks silver the band color coding is confusing my best guess is 5ohms 2w resistor but maybe someone who has more knowledge can help – Amrith Feb 13 at 6:52

This circuit looks somewhat familiar, and I believe it is both a resistor and a fuse, the thin metal at higher voltage will 'blow' the resistor but at lower voltage regulates the current, so a surge current (or rouge failure of the power circuit) won't kill the rest of the components.
