Recently, a repair friend of mine brought in an electronic card where he took it out from an old machine cutter. The card was estimated to be more than 30 years old. He shown to me the type of resistors and tantalum capacitors. They are totally different from the current type of components. I have not seen such components before and this is why I took a picture and show it to you.

I guess those who already in this repair field since the 70’s or even 80’s could have seen this kind of components. If you know what is the type of the resistors shown please do leave a comment-thanks. By the way this repair friend of mine have over 30 years of experience in electronics repair and I’m really bless to have him around.

    I never seen such components before but as you knew electronic components has a classification we do not expect the components used in game consoles is same class of components used in medical equipments or space ships. I think it is a collection of old industrial components

      Hi Shihab,

      You are right about it.

    I have seen above type of components. Actually, i have been working since 90s when i was teen age and were studying in 9th standard. On that time 20-29 inches TV Phillips, Grundig, Hitachi, GoldStar, and Akai were took place in ERa. And Common problems was arrived in Power Supply and IFT logic cards. Circuits were Big type and Interface cards with multiple wires. Any how. That Era was Old . Rightnow Electronics is minimized and micro to Nano Electronics.
    However, In above Circuit Transistor, Bridge and PF Capactiors is Installed.
    thanks you
