Default Re: Question electrolytic capacitor from 1990`s

consoles are probably fine.
the tv is a differrent story.

electrolytic capacitors fail with a combination of time and HEAT or high-voltage.
consoles like you listed dont really cook themselves.
i'v not seen in a ps2 slim, but it's probably all smd stuff - not something to work on if you dont have to.

if it still works fine and you cant see or smell any leakage then leave alone when it comes to smd caps.
you stand a reasonable chance of damaging the board trying to remove them.
