I know rather more about this than Adrian has said, so I might as well 
let on. It's from a VT100 power supply board, it's in the chopper circuit. 
The chopper transistor has failed short-circuit B-C and open B-E and this
took out the resistor (as far as I can tell). 

Knowing how chopper circuits behave (or don't!) I agree this must be replaced
by a fusible resistor. Otherwise next time the chopper fails it might be
