    resistor band explanation


    There's an explanation of the band colors. It looks like you need a 1.8k resistor. You may have to solder 2 different resistors together to get that. 1870 is your median so I would try to get as close to 1.8k as possible and if you can find a 5% resistor (silver band) get that one.
