The process it outlines is simple and straightforward. It is quite easy to carry out and has led me to the offending component every time I have used it. Kudos to modem7.
There's nothing to assume here.Isolating the faulty power rail doesn't take much effort. Locating which is the bad capacitor is not the same thing, assuming it is the capacitor.
My 5150 started acting up, and it ended up being a shorted 12v cap. I've clipped it and was wondering if when I replace it, should I just shotgun the entire board.
16-64k board, so can I replace all the caps with 10uf 16v?
These readings are while testing in-circuit. I plan to remove and test them and test this weekend, but thought I'd ask before I go to that trouble.
