This is my first time posting to this forum, years ago when I lived back East I used to check in on the site more. Anyways, I'm planning on buying a Compaq Portable (the later-named "1") I've never really done recapping capacitors, and although I could dust off my soldering iron, I'm a bit concerned about any capacitors in the power supply and any attached to the CRT. I expect these to be sectioned off from each other, I've only really looked at re-capping old Macs and other computers with a completely separate power supply, I'm not really sure what I'm getting into with the Compaq. Is there someone out there who could recap the entire machine for a reasonable price? Either an independent freelancer or at a computer repair shop (mostly my "experience" with repair shops is being told stories of various ways how they used to rip people off) I'm not certain what kind of response I can get here. And be patient with me, I have to double check that I set my notifications correctly, etc. Thank You. Happy New Year!
