Question about Samsung SyncMaster 216BW Monitor
Which caps should I replace? One is obvious, but there are some others that don't appear damaged other than some blue coloring on the top. Pictures below.
I would suggest to use PANASONIC FM or FC series from DIGIKEY, they have low ESR, high ripple current capability, 105c rating. You should replace then as set per suggestion above.

Redhorizon77, Electrolytic filter capacitors are relatively cheap. I would at least replace ALL filter caps that have the same capacitor manufacturer name that is printed on the heat-shrink "tube" label. Look for names like: "CAPXON" SAMXON" "JUN FU" "ELITE" Then tell us what you find installed on your SMPS board. Please pay attention to polarity when replacing them. The wire lead closest to the white stripe on label is the negative lead. Make sure to mark the board with fine point marker where the negative lead goes!! And take close-up photos (2 to 3 inches) of board and capacitors BEFORE removing them. Solder some half-inch leads onto the bad and suspected bad caps and ask the local tv/monitor tech to measure the capacitance value (UF) microfarad and report back the data here on fixya. Also tell us brand of filter caps you installed. 12fixlouie
