    For several months my skyworth has been out of action, and it's about time I got a soldering iron and replaced the dodgy capacitor.

    Thing is, I know nuttin' about electronics, I have no idea what to ask for in Maplins. Anyone know? Link with pics is below....

    cheers

    Smurfin, just to confirm because I have got an electronics engineering degree the u does mean micro so you need a 16 volt 2200 micro farad electrolytic capacitor.

    When you come to do the soldering as well it is best if you have got a solder sucker. This is a device for removing the solder on a board, so it will be nice and easy to get the capacitor out. If you have not got one then the easiest thing to do is heat up one of the solder pads and then at the same time pull gently on the top of the capacitor so the leg pulls out of that hole slightly. Then do the same with the other solder pad. Keep doing this until the capacitor comes right out, it may take a couple of goes. Then use the soldering iron to remove any excess solder from the pads and then put in the new capacitor and solder it back in. Be careful though not to leave the soldering iron to long (no more than 10 seconds) on the pads because they can lift up from the PCB and then you are in all kinds of trouble.

    OT, slightly (buy I think Smurfin's busy soldering ATM), but I never could stand solder "suckers".

    Solder "mop" is far easier to use with better results.

    Not soldering yet:rolleyes: About to head down to maplins, I'll put money on it that they don't have em in stock:mad: ....or if they do I find some way to permanently damage the DVD player:nono:

    As for solder mops and suckers, hmmm, you both completely lost me there!:eek: :rolleyes:

    Each to his own, I have always been a sucker man than a mop man :eek:

    Smurfin, if you have never heard of solder suckers or mops then don't worry about it, just try the method I outlined earlier. Good luck :smashin:

    thanks very much for your help, went out and paid £11 for the capacitor, soldering iron and a solder sucker, was straight forward to do....and it works again! Forgotten how good the picture is from this baby, pisses all over my Toshiba SD510E - and to think it only cost me £50 to buy :)
