Electronic – Please help with resistor color code


I have trouble with finding out resistance of a resistor. It has 5 bands but somehow I cant get the code right.

Here's my best attempt: -

  • 1st band is grey because the 2nd band can't be gold (see above) = 8
  • 2nd band is red hence = 2
  • 3rd band is green = 5

This makes the value 8.2 Mohm

The gold band makes it a 5% resistor and the final white band is the tricky one but I suspect it should be regarded as a "null" (or nil) band and meaningless as implied in this picture: -

The final white band could imply a 20% tolerance.
