Where to buy electronics resistor near Basel?

Hi,

Does anyone know somewhere in/near Basel, where I can purchase a 100ohm resistor 0.25W?

My Synology NAS has died and according to several forum threads, it can easily be fixed by soldering one of these resistors to the motherboard.

I've looked online, but the places I found charge less than CHF1.00 for the resistor, but CHF 12.00 for the post&packaging.

Thanks in advance

Better yet, send me a pdf so I can just print it out and shove it in a windowed envelope (sames me the time to write it, and I have a lot of them), and a PostA stamp-code if you're feeling generous!

Tom

P.S. are 1/2W OK, or must they be 1/4W? And what tolerance?

P.P.S. normal, or surface mount?

Thanks very much, I'll send you a PM, plus buy you a beer if we should ever meet ... the solution to my problem is described here with photos ... I'm assuming normal, plus the various persons in the post only ever refer to 1/4 or 0.25W, plus they also refer to tolerance of +/- 1% up 5% ... not sure how important this is.

AliExpress you can buy >100 for $1 but you have to wait for delivery. If you want to drop by Allschwil. I can give you a resistor.

A simple thank you isn't enough. After installing the resistor this evening, I was able to recover my Synology NAS.

No clue why it works, but it just does.

For anyone else that happens to end up with a dead Synology NAS, the problem and solution is described here https://community.synology.com/enu/f...5&reply=410449

Once again, thanks PHIL MCR

Hi Stelemans, thanks for the kind offer, but I ended up collecting a resistor from Phil MCR

In very short and hopefully so all understand: There is a chip inside that needs to feed a bit of power to a certain point for the device to be able to boot up, this chip has a fault and will stop doing so, by adding the resistor you feed that point from another source, the 100Ohm value of the resistor is just to make sure the voltage taken from the other source is brought down to acceptable level for the point that needed feeding, and the 0.25W is simply the amount of power the resistor can safely transport without overheating, you might have used a 100 Ohm, 10.000W but those are a bit bigger :P
