I would just like to see that they looked like completed,instead of the yellow caps.

Don't stress was only asking a question.

Sorry all for Hijacking this thread, would this be the correct cap for the smaller of the two.

Didn't mean to come off as an asshole, sorry
I think the ones he used are these:

http://za.rs-online.com/web/p/polyes...itors/6225075/

This should also be a nice replacement, being X2 classed:

Thank you so much for your help.

Will get the better ones and try it out.

I am a real newbie to this stuff, agents and tecsa want nearly R3000 for a new PC board. If the replacement of the capacitors work like it did for RickyZa, then it saves me huge.

Be sure to order replacements for the electrolytic caps as well!

I am planning to take the board out tomorrow to work on replacing the Capacitors.

@ Redwire, I will update the numbers for you when I remove the capacitors, probably later tomorrow.

Hey guys, i see things have been happening over here, i need to configure my notifications as i got nothing.

In anycase the Panasonic caps you posted are the exact ones i ordered Hanson, i just double checked and stock numbers are indeed the same.

Wayno did you manage to solder those new caps back on ? If not i can find the pictures i took of the finished job, they somewhere although its really simple, they bipolar ofcourse so you can mount them anyway you like.

Did you manage successfully actually getting the top cover off and getting the actual pcb out ? Thats a bit tricky.

They are insane, i mean for such a simple board ... You get brand new Defy's that are the same size for R4500 these days. This should work for you especially if you have the same problem as i mentioned in the post. Let me know if you need any other help !

Hi RickyZA,

No I haven't had a chance been putting it off for a while, just moved house and trying to sort out chaos.

The top cover is a bit tricky and I wanted to spend more time in it so I don't break any plastic clips. Any pointers?

Hi Redwire,
