A question on how to identify Surface Mount Component

A customer and a friend of mine Mr.Wilson from Malawi who lives in Pretoria, South Africa wanted to know how to identify Surface Mount Component

Hie Mr. Kimathi,

In the first place I want to appreciate you for extraordinary knowledge I have gained from your CRT TV repair eBook.

It’s so clear that even somebody who doesn’t know anything concerning electronics can manage to at least fix a TV with this book at hand.

The issue now is, I am looking for the book which can help me with the Surface Mounted Components like Diodes, Transistors etc, as I am struggling to identify and test many of components from LCD TVs and monitors that’s why I have decided to ask you about your Basic Electronics Course eBook.

I am ready to purchase it as soon as I get this information from you.

Hope to hear from you soon.

May God Almighty continue to bless you and reveal more to you in Jesus name


Hi Wilson,
Thanks for your feedback and glad to hear that you have found my eBook valuable companion at your work bench.God bless you too my brother.

Regarding my basic electronics eBook, I have not written about smd components but when it come to testing, the method is the same only that smd are small in size...

What you require maybe is just how to identify them and you can easily Google “how to identify smd components" and I am sure you will get a lot of info for free on the internet.

Again if you have an android phone, go to Google play and download an application called "electroDroid" this is very good even for other components also

Regards Humphrey
