Could it have started out as yellow-violet-brown & gold? That would have been 470R 5%
Or red-violet-brown, 270R

Those red powdery surface resistors are usually small power resistors by the way, either 1W or 2W rating depending on the physical size.
If one of them is still OK can you measure the value of that?

The resistors themselves do not look to bad, the joint at the left of the lower one and the right end of that on the PCB look seriously cooked...

Example - Vishay PRO1 series resistor, 470R
