ZLQ is only current D10 4700/6.3 series, AFAIK. Though most 3300/6.3 will be also OK, like Chemi-Con KYB.

Already have the 3900/6.3's Panasonic FS. Will probably install them tonight when I get a chance.

Will see if this whole project is a bust or not

Seems like I have been successful. Power supply is now working again!

Changed all electrolyic capacitors except a 10uF Teapo hiding under a coil that was pretty much impossible to get out. Didn't feel like taking the coil out for a capacitor just to change a capacitor that is still good!

the usual method when re-capping a psu is to pull the heatsinks out with the semiconductors still mounted on them.
i do anyway - it helps brush out the dust.

Wow (I thought removing the semi-conductors and heatsinks was mainly only done by reviewers to better identify the different regulators)

That is far more work than just working around the heatsinks with a pair of pliers.

I've done some basic measurements:

5V rail, measures about 5.1V with about 20mV ripple.
12V rail, measures dead 12V on the dot and I get about 40mV ripple.

I'm pretty happy with that.

Ok, so I'll just recap all the capacitors I replaced:

4 x 4700uF 10V - Replaced with Panasonic FS 3900uF 6.3V
2 x 3300uF 16V - Replaced with Panasonic FS 3000uF 16V (was a pain to fit as caps were bigger than original)
2 x 1uF 50V - Replaced with Panasonic PW 1uF 50V
1 x 220uF 16V - Replaced with Rubycon YXJ 220uF 16V
2 x 1000uF 10V - Replaced with Rubycon ZLH 1000uF 10V
1 x 470uF 25V - Replaced with Rubycon YXG 470uF 25V
2 x 10uF 50V - Replaced with Rubycon YXF 10uF 50V
1 x 47uF 35V - Replaced with Nichicon PS 47uF 35V
1 x 22uF 50V - Replaced with Rubycon YXF 22uF 50V

Thanks for everyone who gave advice, pretty cool to see this PSU working well again.

Exactly, I never do that unless absolutely necessary, takes too much time…
