Bronwin Draney: The question is, WHY do the caps blow? Cheap and poor quality, or
Best to find a top brand, and yes, go to 50 volt but also double the
capacitance value. A capacitor's job is to pass AC current and block DC
current. Capacitor's are also like a battery. They will hold a charge and
will discharge but unlike a battery, the charge rate and discharge rate is
virtually instant. There is no internal resistance as there is in a battery.
Overrrating the caps in voltage and capacitance will mean you have plenty
of reserve and won't stress them as much in normal usage.
Anyway, glad I got an extended, 5 year warranty. Still, good to know what
to look for instead of just being at the mercy of the repair dept.,
after warranty. They could easily say that the whatever, is blown and it's
a major job costing much moolah, instead of ten bucks worth of caps.
Thanks for the vid, ain't the Internet wonderful?
jaydrums101: lol! Hope that don't happen to me!

Pablo Eskobar: Samsung and LG are good to make CRAPPY JUNK tv's that last 2 years... They
should be prosecuted.....
Jennifer Moncada: I have a ploblem with my 42' plasma. The imput of the TV keeps changing on
its own. Its very frustrating. And when I use the tv controller to change
it back, its changes itself again. Also when I use the volume of the cable
tv controller or the tv controller it changes the imput. So I cant really
use the volume becaus knowing the imput will change by doing that..
Nik Gadd: yeah use solder lol
kalcaron: I have a question, it the grey line down the side the negative side? I
opened my tv, the caps are 1000uf, 25v, and there's gold stips with arrows
pointing down, those the negative sides? No other markings I can see......
Brian Johnson: How big are the Caps, uFs? and which ones, C-?
amadan34: Did you change them and did it work?
joseph10704: i had my samsung tv and the max the capasator was to us was 25 or less i
had a 12 capasator so the guy said only use 25 or less i ask him why not
use higer he told me because if u do u will pop the higher cap.so i am
sorry but u are not right and that was a samsung rep and also my buddy who
work's for samsung for 35 years said the same thing.
joseph10704: no dont use a 50 volt u will bow the tv up just use 25 and that is all dont
ever bump the vlots up on the capasator's u will blow them up if u dont put
the right volts in and if u dont put them in righ t they will pop.
Crazywoman201: Hello can u help me please my 42 samsung plasma does not work it was fine
the night before.. So took of the back and seen two capacitors that need to
be fix.. So I just got new ones and put them in but still tv does not
work.. Is there something I forgot to do...????? Thanks..
zerocool5878: Trust me you misunderstood you can go higher in voltage rating but NOT
lower. This is not a myth its a fact. I suggest you look it up
ken b: Dang it, my samsung just fried again, replaced a cap in it about 2 weeks
TheYatchinator: I installed new ones, soldered correctly, and i switched it on, smoke came
out of it and it blew up.
ElusiveTutorial: Changing the capacitors doesnt affect the voltage in any way, as the
capacitors are designed to charge only to what is introduced to it by the
system circutry, say those 25v caps really only charge up to maybe 19v, so
using a capacitor with a higher voltage rating, just means theres a lot
more headroom for the capacitor to control spikes better, remember when
replacing caps, ALWAYS GET SAME OR HIGHER RATED CAPS, never anything below
ricardo castagna: so can you go higher in voltage? My TV has 1000UF, 10V capacitors. I'm
wondering if I could go to 2200UF, 25V ? Please advise. Thanks
joseph10704: ok i will take your word for it thank u bro :)
A Cotto: I have a SQ01 Samsung LCD TV, my capacitors aren't working. What are ones I
should buy to replace it?
Knaeckebrotsaege: common issue is quite an understatement. LG and Samsung are notorious for
using crappy quality capacitors to make the device fail after about 2 years
(warranty period) so the customers just go and buy new TVs or whatever. i
fixed craploads of Samsung and LG LCD Monitors.. 95% of the time it's just
crappy SamWha or Sam Young caps.. oh and btw... radioshack doesn't sell any
Low ESR caps needed for those. better look on digikey or rs-components.
standard grade caps will work, but not for long..
zerocool5878: This is sooo incorrect. There is no reason why a higher voltage cap can not
be used. Using a higher voltage RATED cap with NOT make the voltage higher.
It is simply a rating and you dont want to push more then that into the
cap. Same goes for the temp rating... If its rated at 85c you can use 105c
if thats what you have.
