I've read the HELP CENTER > ASKING page. Not sure where I stepped out of bounds in the original post, but I've reduced the content to the following in an effort to comply:
At issue is the IP (Initial Power) board of a Samsung LCD computer monitor. See picture. The three large capacitors in a row have domed tops and the one at right shows a bit of tan/brown crud in the quadrant lines.
The resilient glop that covers the three compromised capacitors (GLYPTAL?) is removable (but not entirely) by slicing with an X-acto knife and yanking with tweezers.
The 3 large caps appear to be three of the same, but I can't remove enough white stuff to read and know for sure... The one I can read says "820uF25V" Any advice on whether they're identical would be much appreciated. They measure approx 10mm D x 20mm H with lead spacing of approx 5mm (Olin's excellent suggestion was too tall at 25mm).
I have no way to TEST the board and I fear there may be other issues beyond the three apparently compromised capacitors.
In light of that, should I replace the board, or will replacing the three caps likely solve the problem? FWIW, I did accidentally bend (and subsequently straighten) some of the longer leads of surrounding components while removing goop. So I'm concerned that I may have loosened some other component(s) in the process...
Thanks, and MANY thanks to Olin for the outstanding, helpful post. Tom
PS. If the post if off-topic for the TAG 'Solder' I tried multiple times to find a more suitable tag, but was told repeatedly that I don't have ample standing...
