0 ohm resistor places across capacitor?
Hello. My grandmas old laptop had wine spilled on it. I was multimeter testing it to see if I saw anything weird. I found a pc capacitor line that was shorted. In some areas around .14 volts to ground. Other areas were 0.
Unrelated I found a capacitor that had a 000 resistor placed across it(the pads connected this way). Why would a board be designed with this? It makes no sense. Why directly short the capacitor with a resistor?
Anyone one seen this before?
Thanks for any help.
Is this a good question?
