Replace the electrolytics with the same voltage and capacitance value. Make; I would use any reasonable capacitor manufacturer, Panasonic, Rubycon, Vishay, Werth etc are all good and trusted makes.I was testing the caps in my 405-2, and most just seem dead! (i.e no capacitance, or very low capacitance...). What caps would you recommend to recap with?
Referring to the small electrolytes, not the big cans.
Actually, I'd generally recommend a voltage rating one step higher, maybe two - caps have gotten smaller due to tighter tolerances. All within reason, of course - there is little point in having a 63 V cap on a 15 V supply, usually a factor of 3 is ample, so 35 V would be easily justified. See what's the same size as the old one and whether that makes any kind of sense.Replace the electrolytics with the same voltage and capacitance value.
The 405-2 PCB pictured above is one of the worst builds of the product range ~ Although the circuit had been improved and hence the title "405–2" the use of cheap resistors and a small ceramic capacitor for C8 which often "broke down" and under rated electroytics which "dry out" was not a good move ~ but keeping the RCA transistors was
Nobody ever got fired for buying Panasonic FCs. Or any other comparable Nichicon / Elna / whatever.I wonder which exact type of manufacturer and model I should order, for the 100uf/47uf/10uf caps. There are not many, only two of each.
Definitely read them correctly, as other new caps do show their correct values.
