Arcade Monitor Cap Kits
arcade monitor cap kits

Arcade monitor cap kits are easy to make and very cheap! I put together a list of all the capacitors you need to change on your chassis. I buy all my caps from Futurlec and I normally buy the 105°C capacitors and if they don't have one I am looking for I find it on eBay. I list the filter caps in the list but I don't change them. The uf has to be the same but you can always use a higher voltage cap. If you are not too sure what monitor chassis you have you can check out this site What's My Monitor?? Here is a link to Monitor Schematics. Click on the monitor you have for a list of the caps you need!
