How to Find a Burnt Resistor Value by Jestine Yong


For those who are training to become an electronics repairer, here is another good material from Jestine Yong of the LCD Monitor Repair and Electronics Troubleshooting e-books that he created to teach those interested in learning how to repair electronics even with no formal education.

The said material is another e-book containing information on the secret to finding the resistor value of a burnt resistor.

A resistor is an electronic circuit component that is meant to resist the flow of electric current. It has two terminals that electric current needs to pass through. As it moves from one terminal to another, its voltage is reduced. Resistors are designed to do so to maintain a known current within a component of the circuit.

However, sometimes resistors overheat and burn when they fail to dissipate the high temperature caused by the electric current. When this happens, the color code on the resistor is destroyed and hence you are left unable to figure out how to get the resistor value which is important information if you intend to replace it to fix the device it is in.

The resistor value indicates the resistor’s resistance in ohms and is an important value to know. A working resistor’s value can be measured using an ohmmeter which may be function that modern digital multimeters are equipped with. However, if the resistor fails and is burned, you may not be able to obtain its value without the appropriate schematic diagrams. Now, since schematic diagrams do not fall freely from the sky and are usually quite expensive to get, you may find yourself stuck with the particular job you are working on.

Jestine Yong’s How to Find a Burnt Resistor Value will teach you a secret method to find out the value of a damaged and unrecognizable resistor so you will never have to turn down a repair request just because you cannot figure out a single number that will let you know which replacement to get.

Jestine Yong promises that the method he teaches will work on any electronic equipment. This should come in handy for those plasma and LCD TV repair jobs. He also swears that what he teaches will be easy to understand such that you do not even need to get the schematic diagram. It will be a step-by-step detailed instruction complemented by pictures and diagrams. You will not need no complicated equipment like oscilloscopes and other expensive testing equipment.


Troubleshooting Electronics E-book By Jestine Yong


Electronics repair is a highly technical field that not all of us can go into. That is why most of us prefer to go to the electronics or TV repair guy and just pay him to fix our stuff. But this does not mean there is no hope for those who want to learn this skill but have not had any formal technical training. There is hope for the rest of us.

Jestine Yong is one of Internet’s most prolific professional who is quite active in teaching others on how to become a successful electronics repair person like he is. He teaches LCD monitor repair which is a great compliment to Kent Liew’s plasma and LCD TV repair guides that you see a lot of on these pages.

To become a good all-around electronics technician, it is not enough that you know how to fix LCD or plasma flat screens. It is also a good idea to become good at fixing other appliances that have electronic components. One way to do that is to familiarize yourself with the common components used in modern devices and learn how to troubleshoot them.

This is where Jestine Yong’s E-book comes in. Jestine Yong believes that if you know how to test the component parts of an electronic device, you can easily repair them and he maintains that this can be done faster than you may expect. By downloading his e-book, you will learn how to do just that and perhaps jumpstart yourself into the potentially profitable world of electronics repair.

If you wish to learn more about how Jestine Yong can help you learn how to accurately diagnose or test the components of most device, thereby enabling you to figure out how to fix them, I urge you to proceed to his electronics troubleshooting website and start reading.
