    Good day all.

    Can you please help identify/confirm this capacitor

    To me it looks like it might be a 4.7uf 63v, but I would like that to be confirmed before I go replacing it.

    Thanks for your time.

    Best Regards.

    My guess is the same as yours.

    In my TV repair days I replaced a lot of that plastic encapsulated caps. I remember the plastic had habit of cracking up and the caps dried out. Your value and voltage estimate. Looks correct to me

    Thanks for your reply's.

    This cap does indeed have a crack in the plastic casing.

    Any idea what type of capacitor this might be, or what type would be best to replace it with?

    Best Regards.

    Hello,

    Any 4.7μF / 63 Volts electrolitic capacitor will do.
    If you want a longer life-time, take a 105°C type.
    Take note of the + and - for the polarity.
    (they are shown on top of the capacitor in the picture).

    It is an electrolytic cap. I hope you noticed the polarity then it was in the PCB. Note the +/- signs on the top. They denote the polarity. Any modern electrolyte cap with the correct voltage rating (63 volt) should do the job

    I always take pictures & notes before I remove any parts.

    Thanks again.
