0thedisaster 1 year ago Hello. I am very confused. I am trying to find a short on my grandmas laptop board. I found a main short,but I also found some other line that appeared short. I found that there was a capacitor next to a resistor with 000 on it. The solder pads are connected. This means the resistor is shorting the capacitor. I don’t understand this. Why would it be designed like this? https://getappvalley.com/Any help would be greatly appreciated.Edit: Thanks for all the help. https://tutuappx.com/Here is a picture of my board. Sorry for the quality. It’s though my microscope lens. It’s a 000 resistor connected directly to the cap on both sides. This is why it’s confusing. Some answers mentioned impedance at high frequencies but it’s still confusing to me. I’m very stupid and not at all book smart. I am trying to learn though.Thanks again.
