I had to replace 3 caps (2x 1000uf/25v, 1x 1000uf/10v) on my LN52A650 (2008?) tonight, but the only replacements I could find were 1x 1000uf/16v and big 2x 1000uf/25v, which are the same rating as the ones that burned out.
The 1000uf/25v are about 3 times the size of the originals, and I have 3 questions:
- even though the same rating, will they last longer than originals due to size?
- is mounting them on an angle a bad idea? (see pic below)
- they are closer to the heatsink behind them now, is the heatsink a factor in the early cap deaths?
The set has been working fine now for 4 hours, but I'm wondering if I should be worried about the replacement caps.
