Interesting to see some Cornell Dubilier caps in that power supply (the SEK ones on the PCB on the right).

It's a Teapo series that Cornell Dubilier sells under the Mallory brand. I've never had a problem with the standard CDE series, but those Mallory caps and Illinois Capacitor seem a little unreliable.

I was repairing this Sony balalaika and found three faulty ones (short circuit!!!) capacitor , I do not know this manufacturer. Perhaps their breakdown was influenced by the fact that their operating voltage is 10 volts, and according to the service manual, capacitors with an operating voltage of 25 volts should have been used.

Old Elite PW 450v 120uf serving as a primary cap in my old Dell 2407. There is some leakage and corrosion on the positive terminal, seemingly a rather common failure on this model of monitor. As is well-documented on this forum, the terminal will eventually get eaten through and cause a bunch of components to blow up. Fortunately, my monitor was still functional when I found the bad cap. Otherwise, I would have had to replace a LOT more components!






All of the other caps (Elite ES, Elite EJ, TAICON HD, Lelon RGA, FOAI CD112A) seemed fine.

Last Sunday 2 Nichicon (I don't know the series, it has a strange numbering) passed away after 58,000 hours of service, I turned off the monitor of my server to make some changes, and it never turned on again, I replaced it with 2 nichicon of a old broken MSI board, and it's back to life.
I hope I can finish my CCFL tube lifespan experiment, it's still bright enough for the hours it's been working.

The blown Nichicon caps are HD series.

True, because of the upper stain I had a hard time seeing it, thanks.

I think I found the reason my Vizio TV is cycling on and off and it has a buzzing in the speakers even when muted...
