Blown Caps on Phillips 19" LCD tv/monitor

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I have a 19" Philips TV was being used as Computer monitor, bought about 3 1/2 - 4 years ago and was a great little display, so late last year I powered it back up after an electrical storm and it would make a horrible screeching sound... I powered it down and bought the 24" in my sig, put tv in closet and forgot all about it till spring (fall) cleaning... took it apart and found 4 blown caps on main system board where all display ports are....

The caps are about 3/4 " tall by 1/4 " wide from what I could see there is writing on them all I could make out is 1000uF, not sure what the voltage is for em. They are black with goldish writing on them and a silver top

Any of you guys possibly know what I am refering to? Also, could anyone point me in the right direction of getting those caps? Not looking to spend an arm and a leg getting this display fixed.

Also, I havent picked up a soldering iron in close to 15 years, and I drink ALOT of coffee lol

Thanks

As long as you get replacement capacitors that are exactly 1000uF, you will be fine. Size of the capacitor only maters as long as the physical capacitor fits wherever the previous capacitor was. Voltage does not matter as long as you choose new capacitors that exceed the voltage of the old caps.

Some good websites-

I also check ebay, can usually pick up good stuff there!
