resisitor value

Hi

Could anyone advise on the value this resisitor?

It looks like it has failed as it is open circuit when testing
it so I can not measure it's resisitance and i do not have any
access to the circuit diagram.

The colours, which look fadded, seem to be:

WHITE : BROWN : BROWN : RED : SILVER

or it could be

WHITE : ORANGE : ORANGE : RED : SILVER

any ideas on what value it is so I can replace it?

also does the colour of the resistor body (blue/green) have any significance?

Cheers

Could it be grey, red, gold, gold, white?

It isn't clear.

It's probably a fairly low power resistor.

Read the code as per the chart below, then bear in mind the value is most likely to be a standard E24 or E96 value or at least a round value, otherwise it's unlikely to be correct.  I'd hazard a guess that it's a fairly low value given its size and how it's mounted a fair distance from the PCB. It looks like the designer has undersized the resistor so replace it with one with a higher power rating.
