- 13x l0uF
- 2x luF
And the following aluminium capacitors (for the power board)
- l00uF Aluminium
- 22uF Aluminium
- 820uF Aluminium
Audio Board Recapping:
Replace all 5 capacitors on the audio board with the l00uF surface mount capacitors.
Polarity does not matter.
Power Board Recapping"
Replace the 3 capacitors on the board with the same sized aluminium capacitors.
Polarity matters, make sure ta put them in the right way!
Main Board Recapping:
Replace all l00uF, 68uF, 4 7uF, 33uF, 22uF capacitors with l00uF surface mount capacitors.
*With the exception on the rare VA4 (837-9537) revision of the board, DO NOT replace C46 located at the top left with l00uF capacitor, instead replace it with the l0uF capacitors. Stack 2 of the l0uF capacitors on top of each other.
Replace all I OuF and 4.7uF capacitors with lOuF surface mount capacitors.
