Unfortunately, I wasn't trying to capture brand names when I took the photos, so they're not too visible on some of them...

thanks i appreciate that, i am gonna try again tomorrow. It is more difficult than I thought because some posters dont make it clear which caps are which and I want to be careful.

i want to try to get as much as i can from the whole forum because i saw we already lost some great Fuhjyyu pics from last year. the poster deleted the pics and didnt hang around. i want to preserve the data.

yeah the brand names are not always visible, its not going to work that way anyway from what i have seen.

Unfortunately, I only started taking photos when I found this forum... never thought before that they'd be useful.

I have more photos of those boards; feel free to ask if you want me to dig one up of something specific. And I haven't gotten around to throwing out any of the caps from these photos, so I can take close-ups of them on a white background if anyone wants.

And as soon as I fix my desoldering station, I'll work on recapping my other 694d, which should yield some _good_ pics of Chhsi caps (ranging from tiny caps to big 2700uf ones), so you might want to hold off making the chhsi image until I take them if you don't have any others...

thanks it is all a work in progress, so anytime you come up with something new i will modify and update.

i think i will have probs with some of the more obscure manufacturers.

if you see anything visibly venting/leaking/severely bulging i would like a photo with the brand showing. olympus is the only way for those macros. as i update you will see the brands with no coverage.

the way i see it is to get it all on the net, whatever I am doing that is maybe useful for somebody. thats why i started my site. i take photos everytime i am doing an install or something. you should continue to take photos cos you write it up great.

Anyone have a capacitance meter? Some brands (i.e. Teapo) tend to fail with no physical signs... best way to document them would be a photo of the capacitor's rating next to a photo of the meter reading far lower than it should...

thanks a lot, an excellent rare pic . i have gotta get to work on this section soon.

Heh, you have an oly uzi, i have a 5050z. I thought that pic was looking olympus sharp. damn fine cameras. i have only ever owned olympus. Bushytails of these forums has one also.

Why dont you do a full post in "Other devices with bad capacitors" cos i will crop that pic for here.

oops. i will fix that.

a guy on dslreports forums was highly recommending powmax to a noob

send some pics but it would be great also if you did a thread on spotting fake rubycon in the faq section.

Here's a new brand I've never seen before........ This motherboard is out of an emachines model T1840 P4 system. The caps are branded "TMS".

you get an ATX connector instead of a AGP. I never understood that philosophy cos they could be selling their customers several graphics card upgrades over time. Those TMS caps look a bit like nichicon imitators

Isn't that the result of a failure instead of the cause? I've seen "unrolled" caps where the metal cover came totally off in failed PSUs - the voltage goes too high and the cap explodes.

{Shrug} The same could be said for any cap. PSU runs fine after a replacement cap was installed.
