New caps for Roland JV-880 PSU? Which do I choose?

Post by fineline » Thu Jan 19, 2023 10:53 pm

Hi!

I need to replace caps for the PSU of a Roland JV-880 since they've started to leak. I'm pretty confident I can do the soldering, the hard part is to know which caps to choose?? There are so many different brands to choose from and also quite a few caps with different specs.

According to the servicemanual the PSB contains the following caps (also checked the caps on the actual board):

220uF/16v
2200uF/35v
4700uF/16v

Preferred brand? Nichion? Panasonic?

Is it the High Temp Caps I want to go for? Or Low ESR??

/J

Low ESR. Same temp as the original. Brand does not matter, since the EU fined the capacitor cartel.
