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

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.
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.
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 :)
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.
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
