i ordered parts from mcm and i managed to get this moniter working "for now" off of my dollar store caps and the help of everyone here so a big thank you to everyone!!!!

i have a very old scope that i was told i could use to test caps but im not sure how or even if its true any advice would be appreciated.
Mostly, you'll find them to be bloated, or if no signs of damage at all, they will be Capxon or other bad/failing (crap) brand/series.Sometimes you'll find a change-on-sight cap.For that, you don't really need an ESR meter,unless you plan to do a living from this, maybe ...
There are 10 kind of people in this world: those that understand binary, and those who don't.
