Re: Where do you get your capacitors?!

A multimeter may not be too accurate. Most electrolytic caps have a +/- 20% rating.

1200 * 0.8 = 960 uF.

Usually, the big caps don't go bad very often. I haven't replaced one yet. That will...

Re: Where do you get your capacitors?!

How are you measuring the uF above? What test tool? and what is "way below capacity"?

Re: Multimeter Iso-tech idm 105?

Clean corrosion. I think you use vinegar and baking soda to neutralise.

Re: Fluke 87 issue

Before we assume the SMD resistors are bad, especially since other components in series/parallel can affect your readings, let's take a step back.

What is actually wrong with Fluke? You never...

Re: Newegg selling fake caps

It seems that all the big online people have 3rd party sellers. It's a shame because it only takes a few dodgy sellers to ruin a big company's reputation that took generations or decades to build.

Re: Digikey sold me caps that are over 4 years old

I'm not defending digikey, but 2700uF 25V may not be a "popular" value so the turnover for these caps might not be very high? Say compared to 1000uF 16V.

Re: Compaq Evo 510 SFF stopped working

Somewhat related. When I had one of these, there were 3 obviously bad caps on the motherboard. While the PC worked with the 3 bad caps, I replaced them.
