What does it mean to RECAP old gear? | Yamaha TX816 in need of help

video by Espen Kraft

"I recently found out that my Yamaha TX816 had bulging capacitors in the power supply. I was a little pressed for time so Anders Jensen stepped in and offered to do it for me. Thanks buddy!

So he shot the complete job and I shot a couple of clips and presto; here is a nice little video for anyone interested in what it takes to actually replace all the capacitors in a power supply. Necessary evil if you want to keep your precious electronics free from harm and enjoy your synths for another 30 years.
Now I "only" have to recap all the different boards as well, but those aren't as critical as the power supply as a bad power rail there can easily fry everything down the line."
