Question about Philips DVP642 DVD Player
The problem I have is that I can only find a 470uF, 50v capacitor at my local electronics store, whereas, the capacitor that needs replacing was a 1000uF, 10v capacitor, will the new capacitor work at only 470uF? or do I need to find one that is 1000uF
Hi, you should use a capacitor with same capacitance of 1000uF, but you don't have to stick to the original voltage spec. 1000uF 10V means it can withstand 10V load. 1000uF 50V means it can hold 50V for the same capacitance. Today I fixed my friend's and for that I used 1000uF 35V from RadioShack. It perfectly works - and it's better. But you shouldn't use 1000uF 5V - by now you already know that :)

I just fixed an HP vs17x monitor that blew three 10v 1000uf capacitors, I replaced them with three 16v 1000uf capacitors and the monitor is up and running and I am using the monitor as I type this response. I'll also agree with Changgull's response 100%.

Which capacitor needs replacing when the yellow light displays and I can't operated my DVD player?

You must replace the capacitor by the same vale of 1000uf along with same voltage. The value you are saying is commen capacitor but if you dont find, then you can get it from computer chasis or any junk store where the junk moniters can find.
Thanks for using fixya.
