I've read that you must replace the bad cap in the D1. I've also read that you need to orientate the new cap in the same orientation of the old cap.
Is the dark blue stripe on the side of the cap how you tell its orientation? The only similarity between the bad cap and its replacement is that dark blue stripe down the side.
I replaced the bad cap and put the new cap with the dark blue stripe in the same orientation. Is that right?
I guess if it isn't, the thing won't play right? It does play fine so I must have got it in there right.
My first soldering 'job'. Getting the bad cap out was a bit of a pain but getting the new one in was a piece of cake, as long as I orientated it correctly that is.
I am able to see the menu on the D1 with the macrovision on/off selection, does that mean I do have the latest firmware? Is there a way to check and 'see' which version of the firmware I do have? Also, I had macrovision turned on, which was the default, but the player would not upconvert to 1080i over component, should macrovision be turned off to allow that? My IN72 shows up on Tuesday. I have nothing with a DVI input right now so I guess I can't input the special settings for pixel mapping on the IN72, correct?
Thanks for all the help,
