Flat Squared Resistor??

Postby glaucus » 14 Nov 2011, 22:41

Hi all

I was fixing a GHD 4.0B and it's the first time I have come across these flat resistors... namely R1, R5, R8 and R10
This R8 is not the usual R8 resistor found on many of the GHD's its more of a flat rectangular type... it does not measure any Ohms and
from previous repairs I guess changing this will bring the GHD back to life...
Has anybody come across this type of resistors in the GHDs?
It is a genuine as inside its got its small screws etc...
Can I just use the normal small resistors typically found ? and can anyone say (i suspect it to be) 100 Ohms? can anyone confirm this
in case its 50 Ohms?

This is normal for the 4.0Bs. Those resistors are not great and we recommend replacing them with a 100 oh Melf resistor:

There is more info here:
