    We have a capacitor that needs to be replaced and it reads 1.0k ti 250vdc. What does 'ti' mean?

    That's the conclusion the guy working on it came to. He read somewhere that two digits should be read as pico. Still dunno what IT is.

    Take the pictures with daylight, outdoors. Plenty of them. Macro setting if available, minimum possible distance as long as it stays in focus.
