Needing resistor for 1995 gc limited inifinity radio
Thanks for the welcome. I took my radio to an auto electronics place here in Mt. Home, Ar. along with how to solder the bad joints. They told me they also located two bad resistors on a board. Does anyone have or know where to buy those? They are a flat resister that are soldered on each end(which is also flat) and one has a marking of 150 on the top and the other is marked 151. One might be about 2x2 millimeter and the other 2x2 mm. I think they are white on the bottom. The display was out on the radio. Any help would be appreciated.
Those sound like Surface Mount resistors which are not easily replaced by the average electronics hobbiest. If they are like the many I've seen, I probably wouldn't chance trying to replace them unless they are high wattage & thus big enough to unsolder/resolder.
However, two resistors blowing make me think something else is wrong which made them blow... which is likely enough of a problem where I'd probably just cut my losses and replace that radio with either a used replacement or a good quality aftermarket radio. My bet is with your radio's model # which is likely on the front panel in very small print somewere, that you could probably find a used but working replacement on eBay.
To freeskier93 and everyone else thank you for your time and consideration on the replies. You all have helped very much. One last question is where would be a place to purchase them without buying a whole reel or roll of them for mucho money? any help would be appreciated. This was my only brother that passed away last may and I'm trying to keep it all original for kind of a reasonable price. We had a lot of fun with it.
Yes they are the flat resistor and the business that is replacing them here in Mt. Home Arkansas is pretty good at auto electronics and computers. The more legwork I can do for them the less they will charge me. This guy and his son are from England and have been here about 7 years and are very nice. Trying to help out the local businesses if I can.
As far as obtaining them, personally I like Mouser. Often times they sell cut ribbons and allow a minimum of 1 resistor. These things are pennies on the dollar though so it's wiser to buy 10 or so. If Mouser doesn't have it then Digi-Key is my next stop.
If you can find a place that sells them locally that works too, but it would have to be a small independently own electronics shop. Last I checked nobody like Radioshack sells SMD stuff.
