Question about Panasonic DMR-E85H DVD Recorder
The electrolytic capacitors you describe are standard Elna 150 degree celcius types and their value is typically 680uF 10V. If the circuit reference on the board suggests C1260 and C1261 and they are both the same capacitance and voltage value, they should be easy to obtain and replace. Uprate their capacitance value from 680uF to 1000uF and if the originals were 10V, upgrade the working voltage of both to 25 - 50V - they should still fit the board.
These types of caps are available from most electronics stores including Radio Shack, and are inexpensive. I recommend that you replace ALL the electrolytics in the power supply of this unit to prevent the likelihood of further failure. Because they are inexpensive, replacing ALL of them at once in a circuit is easier than just changing 1 or 2 caps. Talk to your brother again - and I bet he will agree that all the caps should be replaced, even if some still look OK.
