Re: Simple resistor question

google those codes for reistor values???? I'd say those are capacitors and not resistors, google 223 capacitor value...

Re: Simple resistor question

Correct nsabino, 223mF would be a capacitor. Plus: I've never seen a resistor added to a pot for any reason.

Re: Simple resistor question

That's mainly because a pot is a (variable) resistor itself. There are reasons to add a resistor to a pot, though.
