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.
ken b: Dang it, my samsung just fried again, replaced a cap in it about 2 weeks ago.
jaydrums101: lol! Hope that don't happen to me!
A Cotto: I have a SQ01 Samsung LCD TV, my capacitors aren't working. What are ones I should buy to replace it?
Nik Gadd: yeah use solder lol
Simon Repairman: I found a seller on Amazon has repair kits capacitors, this is the cheapest I found on the net. His seller name is Procacitor He also makes custom kits, you only have to ask him
joseph10704: ok i will take your word for it thank u bro :)
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
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 the original
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.
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.
ManuKey25: Samsung and LG are good to make CRAPPY JUNK tv's that last 2 years... They should be prosecuted.....
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.

amadan34: Did you change them and did it work?
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..
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......
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..
Brian Johnson: How big are the Caps, uFs? and which ones, C-?
alamata65: same crap here too.....i say lets take our Samsung TV & dump it in front of best buy/sears/fries whichever is closer to you..........lets start dump Samsung day!!!!!!!!
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..
