Upgrading TV capacitors from 1000uf-10v to 1000uf-35v?

My TV has bad capacitors, 1000uf-10v and another one 1000uf-35v, I am wondering if I replaced them with other capacitors with the same 1000uf but hiher voltage like 35v and 50v instead of 10v and 35v, will it work better? thanks

Functionally, they are the same.

Testimonial: "So, if the capacitor has the same capacity 1000uf will function the same way even if I upgraded both from 10v and 35v to 25v and 50v respectively to increase their work life! Thanks"

Tv won't turn on, making a clicking noise


Capacitors on the power supply need replaced. Open the back of the tv (after UN-plugged) for 24 hours and look for these:

Good luck!

Replace with SAME uF value and HIGHER Voltage value. (EX:) 1000uF 10v --> 1000uF 35v

Tv is only 3 yrs old. Power comes on but no sound or picture. Menu will not come up either.


Check your power supply for popped capacitors.

They look like these:

My 32 inch Samsung lcd will not turn on.


This is related to 3-4 1000uF 10v capacitors that need replaced with 1000uF 35v high temp capacitors. These broken caps are placed too near a heatsink for transistors and have blown due to the high temperature.


Replace those and you'll be running again!


THANKS

Not turning on at all


check your power supply. remove it then remove the metal plates on top of the psu. ill bet you find 2x 1000uf 35V ,4 x 1000uf 10V and 3x 670uf 35V capacitors that are swollen or leaking. if you replace the 1000uf caps it will work but if the 670uf caps are swollen as well its a good idea to replace them as well. the 1000uf capacitors can be bought at radio shack for around 10 dollars. you can use the 1000uf 35V caps for the 1000uf 10V caps if you cant find the 10V ones . the 35V caps are a little bit bigger but still work . you will need a good soldering iron (35-60 watts) and a good desoldering tool . easy to do if you know how to solder.

Need to replace capacitor on dvd player


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 :)

LG32LC2D - Sound slow to start


This is indicative of a bad main board that will need replaced. For this model make sure the repair person has the full product code (from the back of the unit) so that they can get the correct main board ordered (there are multiple versions depending on the product code). Hope this helps.

Capacitor size


Sure- that's the maximum rating. In fact, if Polaroid had used 35v rated caps in the first place, we probably wouldn't all be replacing them.

BTW another replacement that worked perfectly here.

ILO LCT32HA36 will not power on


same thing happened to my ilo. There are four capacitors that are bad on the power board. You can usually tell its bad because at the top it bulges out. Here is what you need to do. Unplug the tv, open up your ilo find the power board ( the power cord plugs into it). Then find the capacitors that are bad (they are the around things usually in blue color) and remove them by soldering the other side. On mine there where three 1000uf 16v and one 470uf 35v. Those are the ones that need replacing. I replaced them with a higher voltage rating 1000uf 35v and 470uf 50v. All you need to do is solder them back on but make sure you solder them back the right way (plus goes to plus on the board or you will be in trouble). I found the capacitors at radio shack for about 1.50 a peice. If you dont know how to solder look it up on youtube. If that does not work there might be couple more bad capacitors that need replaceing just need to find them and you can tell by a small bulging top.
