We need to see what you mean by mottled. Note too that lack of swelling or leakage is no guarantee the surge produced no hidden damage. A weak or failing cap can easily be reduced to useless via electrical overload.
Also, make a list of the brand names you see on each along with each's 5-character position stenciled adjacently on the board. The more Enercons you find, the more likely cap replacement could be a solution. Skip the little ones C2201, C2206, C2214 if you want. The name on the one under the DVD drive you might not be able to see.
These old eyes may not be up to doing what you asked for unless I tear the whole thing apart first. Looking at an angle with the glare, it is very difficult for me to read.
But at a quick look:
They are almost all a bluish purple [ maybe all] and I think I see: Su'scon on the side. Even the biggest one near the power cord looks like this. Plus a couple medium size ones in the area. The ones near the power cord have the heaviest mottling.
The tops of new caps have a uniform fairly shiny surface. By mottling, I mean that shiny surface is no longer uniform -- parts of it have turned into an oxidized non uniform looking surface. So a mix of shiny and various shades of oxidized. But NOT starting at the edge of the cap top.
There's a few under the HDMI circuit board that look the same purple color as the exposed ones. But they are pretty small. There are not any hidden by the DVD drive as far as I can tell.
Here is a PRELIMINARY list of caps in the power circuit:
C2223, CC2204 [ the largest], C2206, C2205, C2216, C2201, C2207, C2204, and further on the side C 2210. I am not seeing the method to the madness here. No correlation between the size and the number?? I am assuming D is for diode, R is for resistor??
I will get into this more tomorrow.
Thanks for your help on this mrm
