Default Re: Xbox (original) killer capacitor

The gold ones fitted to early Panasonic videos were exciting when you replaced them with lots of banging and hissing.
The other VCR favourite was on the Hinari / Sentra / Solavox machines that caused the machine to shut down when it failed. We changed them, but there was a mod to prevent the machine locking up - just a resistor. This meant you didn't need to change the capacitor but could still charge the same...
