    Just wanted to start out by saying Hi to everyone as this is my 1st post.

    I need some help identifying a resistor and possibly where to get a replacement.

    Here are the markings:

    I believe that reads as 56 + 2 zeroes, or 5.6K. The power rating is clear.

    I would agree.

    Note that the "J" suffix is a mil-spec designation for 5% tolerance.

    When replacing this... should I choose a carbon, metal or power resistor?

    Looks to me like a wirewound power resistor.
