    What is a good source for getting capacitors. I need a Series LY, 150uF, 450wv, +105 degree C. It is from the power supply of an LCD TV. It looks OK except that the end is slightly crowned and can be pushed in. A friend gave me the TV and the first time I turned it on it smoked a bit from the vent next to the power supply. A visual inspection of all the boards show no burn or heat marks. This capacitor is about 1 5/8 by 7/8 dia. A small 10uF cap has a slight bulge on top, unlike similar caps.

    When turned on there is a dim picture on the screen but only lasts about 10 seconds even after the smoke event.

    How close do the specifications have to be.

    It depend of circuit, as rectificator of noise/ripples could be little of in capacitance, if not sure - look for same. Check digi-key, mouser, JDK, local surplus stores ..

    Wrong temp - you gave 85°C while he need 105°C

    It was close but it is a snap in. I need to have two leads on one end to solder in. It has to lay flat. I did a further search and they all were snap in. Thanks for the help.

    UPDATE: Found the caps I need at Mouse.com.
