Burned up cap
« on: November 07, 2019, 03:43:24 PM »
Hi. The forum has helped me in the past with amps but now I have a problem with a car radio and maybe someone can help me. This inexpensive car radio has had a capacitor burn up. It looks like it took out the 1000uf behind it too. I have plenty of 1000uf caps in my stash but I don't know the value of the burned cap. However, the cap around the other side of the 1000uf is a 104 (.01uf). Is it likely that the burned cap is also a 104? In my stash I found three different types of 104 caps. Which type would you suggest that I use as a replacement? Thanks.
