Repair my Polaroid FLM-2601 by replacing capacitors/? for FIXYA
Hi there. I'm tempted to try this because I like to piddle around with this sort of thing and am detail oriented, and your repair instructions are very precise. But I had one question: when I replace these capacitors will that solve my problem in the long run? Or will I have to replace them again as this will happen again after awhile?
Do not be mislead by my Product choice in the Product bar. This site does not offer the actual product Model (FLM-2601) but there are plenty of references to it.

First- unplug it, Second- remove the back( can be tricky), Third- follow the AC cord to the power supply board and your there. Look for any Caps that may be bulged and replace them. Sometimes caps can be bad and look ok. Let ame know how you do>
Pretty good chance the power supply board is bad. A number of capacitors will become leaky and you lose all power. Some techs still know how to do componentLavalservice but most just change the board $$$$
I repaired mine the same way, I replaced the two defective 1000uf 35v capacitors and mine works as good as new. The capacitors are ruined by heat, as they are positioned at the top of the power supply board where all the heat is (a poor design, in my opinion). If you do this make sure that you use high temperature electrolytic capacitors rated at 105 deg. C. minimum. I used caps rated at 125 deg. C. hoping it will last a little longer this time.
