Hi ya stj
I've been having problems with the stability of the screen on my Xbox particularly when running XBMC and notice that the three next to the CPU are bad.
I bought the ones in the link you posted and they have just arrived. I know very little about capacitors but I'm confident I can replace them. Could you help with a couple of questions please? I got ten of them in the package so can I use the excess capacitors on the board and where? And please just confirm for me their orientation.
Mucho gracias

orientation, the long wire is positive,
the painted bit is negative,
so the painted bit goes to where the stripe was on the old cap.

other question needs a pic of your board - there are 6 different ones

Thanks stj, I've already replaced the three by the CPU and the problems I had are now gone. Thanks so much, I hope I get another 10 yrs out of this classic console.
