I need to replace a diode on an old PCB, the existing one being a
1N100

What's a suitable modern equivalent to this please? It's part of a
video output circuit.

Thanks

It's germanium, so one of the key things is to find a germanium
diode to replace it.

NTE is an outfit that sells replacement components for electronics
repair. They cross-reference a 1N100 to their NTE109.

http://nte01.nteinc.com/nte/NTExRefSemiProd.nsf/$$Search?OpenForm Look on their website for a distributor or retailler near you. Frequently their product is also sold in radio/television repair shops too, so your part may be just a short drive away. You might be able to get it within the hour, rather than waiting for shipping. Good luck Chris T #### Terry Pinnell Jan 1, 1970 0 Thanks. Any recommendations please? Here are 3 equivalents according to my old reference books: AA118, OA95 and 1N618. Whether any of them are easy to obtain is another matter! M #### max-man Jan 1, 1970 0 Here are 3 equivalents according to my old reference books: AA118, OA95 and 1N618. Thanks very much, have now found a supplier of the OA95 (listed as OA95/05 - the same one I assume) here: www.farnell.com part no: 368039 Should have said that i'm in the UK.

found a supllier of OA95 in the UK.
