Is that all I'm allowed?? Okay, I'll take a wild stab in the dark... Incomplete lock clear. Finish a flag clear before trying to use. Am I close? Have I bought another word at least? Maybe a model number?
Here are a couple of links that may help you to diagnose the problem...it could be your power supply is partially failing, but that's just a stab in the dark. See here and here and here Good luck! I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!
and good eyesite i hope... those boards are soldered by machine in a factory controlled by a computer (of course).
Be that as it may... determine the values of the capacitors. it's written on the side of the case. Not one side has a strip. in other words negative and positive side. ensure you get them in the same way they came out.
Finding the parts depends on where you live. i would suggest seeing if you can find a donour motherboard that you can remove them from. inspect the part first... if it is rounded on the top it's not what you want.
next is desoldering the part. don't try using a 100 watt soldering iron as you will do serious damage. mount the board on it's side with the parts closest to you that you want to desolder... a solder wick or solder ****** is your best bet as it makes for a cleaner job.
determine which two solder points hold in the part. heat them and pull (gently) up on the part. replace the capacitor making sure the orientation is proper and resolder it. careful not to heat it up to much. inspect the solder job to ensure you did not create any solder bridges to other components on the board.
do one at a time so you don't lose track of what you are doing and the orientation of the parts.
I applaud you for attempting this as i see too many things thrown out nowadays that can be repaired.
I repaired an lcd monitor with a $2.00 part and it works great.
back to the board. finish all the parts.... inspect it carefully again for solder bridges. reassemble it ... power it up ... hold your breath and watch for smoke.... if you do the job carefully you will enjoy the results.
Ok, they're the kiddies to replace, are they all the same manufacturer? all 1000uf 6v3's?
What happens is the electrolyte breaks down and produces hydrogen gas, sometimes they can literaly explode but more often than not they'll either blow out the top or the rubber plug on the bottom and just leak the electrolyte on the PCB.
The electrolyte is corrosive so best to snip the caps out ASAP and clean the board up with a good PCB cleaning solvent before you attempt to replace.
Sorry if your aware of this, dont mean to teach you to **** eggs ;)
