So I've decided to try an fix a few guitar amps by mostly doing a visual inspection on them. I do a little with my cheap multimeter too but where I find hot marks on the PCB, it's those things I usually just change out with great success (so far). Of course the easiest parts to change out are the ones with part numbers printed right on them but it's these pesky resistors that are giving me problems especially this one who's stripe colors are not identifiable and wattage/voltage in the area has me wondering too. So I have a very beginners question for you tech guys. First, I was able to locate the schematic for the board and track down the resistor location = written in the footprint for the resistor is '180,' then the circuit line continues out from there and is written 3W. So does this mean that this transistor is 180 ohm and 3 watt ? * Please take a look at the section I cropped and give me your opinion. Thank you so much. * Secondly, I am lost on the stripe problem because the colors on this thing are so indistinguishable, that I don't know what to do to match it exactly. Opinions? Thanks.
