Electrolytic capacitors have a finite lifespan, and when they deterioriate, hardware may act a little strangely or may not work at all. For more information, see our Identifying Bad Capacitors wiki page.
Console5 kits are created by referencing actual hardware, not from inaccurate schematics or service manuals. We only use high-quality caps from well known, well established manufacturers. Our kits meet (and frequently exceed) OEM requirements, in both voltage and temperature ratings. Kits may contain caps with higher than original voltage ratings.
