Replacing bad capacitors in PSU for HDTV
Problem: I recently received a half-broken tunerless HDTV (works when it wants) with the MLT386X power supply. The first thing I did was open-up the psu from advice at avsforum.com and noticed alot of caps have leaked and few with bumps.
About Me: This is my very first attempt to fix the psu. I have very litter soldering experience.
So far what I did, purchased
2x CapXon C634 - 1000uF, 10v > 2x NTE VHT1000M16 - 1000uF 16v
2x CapXon C632 - 470uF, 16v > 2x NTE VHT470M16 - 470uF 16v
1x CapXon C618 - 470uF, 25v > 1x NTE VHT470M25 - 470uF 25v
2x Decon 470uF 35v (unsure if these are electrolytic caps and frys has no stock)
I hope that I can fixed it and used it as a monitor for my desktop. (Flight Simulator)
My hdtv model is: Viore LCT37V66HM (uses LG/Philips Display)
