    Some time ago I dismanteled the old crt monitor that someone spilled liquid into it rendering the monitor dislay capabilities useless. Recently received desoldering iron and went to remove caps that I can reuse in dead power supply for an older lcd display. One of the capacitors was this weird at least to me, 1000v 47uF Luxon. I tried locating on Internet same one, but was not able to do so far, doesn't mean it doesn't exist though. Can it be that it improperly labeled during manufacturering ? IMG_20170408_205442.JPG

    Read again, 100V not 1,000 V

    Also, brand name is G-Luxon

    the part is a bit flimsy for the given voltage/capacity but doesnt look damaged. Is it dead? Do you have component tester?

    Brand is not important but if the circuit needs low ESR it will normally not even work at all with non matching capacitor.
    It may even only work with some specific capacitors.

    Experience shows these consumer electronics last a few years at best (tough I saw a korean flat panel surviving 14 years).
    Marginal parts which just so will work on the borderline for a while.
