    identifying SMD capacitors?

    Hi
    When i was fixing my radio I had to replace SMD capacitor with a ceramic disk capacitor.

    The SMD capacitor was dark brown, some others were light brown, some were white.
    Is there a color code for their value?

    Unfortunately not. Also, be aware that leaded capacitors are likely to have much higher inductance than SMD types; that is sometimes of importance.

    Re: identifying SMD capacitors?

    Ok thanks.
    Capacitor was near the front end of receiver, I thot a 103 would work didnt have one, tried a 104 it worked but reception was a bit weak, so tried 102 and reception was normal.
