My dad recently got his hands on an old Canon P-8 Cinestar S projector. When he turned it on he forgot to turn the switch at the bottom to the correct setting so it gave a bang and smoke came out. We checked and it was set to 160V instead of the 240V we have in Europe.
After opening it up I saw that a capacitor had popped and a fuse had blown, but besides that it looks ok to me. The problem is that I can't make out what exactly the specifications of the cap are, I have some information but the "wrapper" got torn up so I might be missing something. The parts that I can still make out read:
- 026602A (I'm guessing this is the product nummber but there's a tear after the final 2, the A is from another part)
- Nippon Chemi-con
- .1(k) 400V
I checked on google and found one photo of this thing opened up (You can see it at https://van-eck.net/en/spare-part-finder/?cat=film&merk=28&type=P8%20Cinestar%20S) it's the capacitor on the bottom right of the photo.
Looking at similar questions on here I found that apparently I can replace it with a higher voltage capacitor, as long as it's the same farad rating, the problem is that from the information I have I don't see an obvious farad rating. There's just the .1(k), but while I don't know a whole lot about electronics I know enough that capacitors are usually measured in uF of nF, but definitely not in kF.
I was hoping that someone could help me figure out what I can replace it with. The user manual I found online says the fuse is a 2A 5x20mm fuse, so that's easy to replace.
