Default Re: Pic of cap, is it a Badcap?

Follow up: when getting the cap out I couldn't even hook it up to the LCR meter as the lead fell off.

I did not have a proper cap at hand, and parallelled two 100uF 400V caps. It was/is a simple smoothing cap for the 230V input, so the powersupply works perfectly with the smaller capacitance.

I had a better suited cap, but the diameter was too big (it is a very shallow (~5cm/2") powersupply).

Will keep looking for a better replacement, I even have plenty, but they are in powersupplies I might need lateron for projects... For now, it works just fine.
