How To Identify Bad Capacitors
Lately Samsung LCD TV have been having problems with its power supply, caused by bad capacitors. In this post it will show images of bad capacitors so that you can easily identify them once you try opening your LCD TV and try to fix it yourself.
As you can see on the image, it is very easy to spot a bad capacitor. All there is, is flat and then bulged. The image is showing you the top of the capacitor. Remember not in all cases that the bulging will appear at the top but also bulging can appear at the bottom part of the capacitor where the circuit board and capacitor meets.
Sometime, bad capacitors does not bulge but if the top of the capacitor is not tightly sealed it could leak. Just like the picture to your left where it leak.
Have you seen capacitor that were blown but don’t have similarities on the images above? Please let me know I will make sure to post is here to inform everybody having this capacitor problems.
