on my raspberry pi 2 model b v 1.1 there is a shorted resistor with a name tag R37. I cannot find a circuit diagram for this particular version of raspberry, so I do not know which SM resistor to buy. Is there a kind soul who has the same model top check the value of this R37 resistor with a multimeter. Of course if anyone has the circuit diagram I will be all so happy.


  • Could you explain how you measured resistance? If you measured the resistance of R37 while it was soldered in the board, you did not necessarily measure its resistance; you may have measured the equivalent resistance of the circuitry and components around it. – Seamus Aug 13 '19 at 12:52
  • @Seamus i used a multimeter while it was on board. but there is visible discoloration of solder around this particular resistor. Also he is getting very hot. I will desolder it later today. – Curious Aug 13 '19 at 12:56
  • Absent a schematic, that's probably the best approach. It's disappointing that the RPi Org doesn't maintain a complete set of schematics, and like you, I also came up empty in searching for an alternate source for the Model B ver 1.1. – Seamus Aug 13 '19 at 15:11
  • What is your actual problem? Why do you think you need to replace a resistor? – Milliways Aug 13 '19 at 22:42
  • @Milliways my actual problem is that RPi is not working anymore. I think I need to replace the resistor because it is very hot and multimeter says it is shorted. I know there could be damage in other parts of RPi, but I think this is the easiest thing to do before buying a new one. – Curious Aug 14 '19 at 8:19
