Need to replace capacitors?

Hi folks,

I can't figure out whether my a1200 has had its capacitors replaced yet. I do want to get done if not. Can you tell from the included pic?

And if yes: Can anyone recommend a reliable service? Amigakit is great quality but they usually have a long backlog.

They may have been, that black capacitor looks like it's standing above the board and they were not installed like that at the factory. The photo is a little out of focus so it's hard to tell exactly, but some of those solder joints also do not look quite factory-like.

The larger caps look like they have been changed, but the smaller ones look like the factory originals. Attached is a photo of my A1200 with original caps.

Nah, those look like original through-hole capacitors to me. They've been blue in all the A1200s I've looked inside.

C21 looks like it's sprung a leak.

I indeed have to eat humble pie! Thanks v much Amigakit. Not only did they replace my capacitors faster than light...they also bundled two additional separate orders into my return at the same time.

Super pleased and big thumbs up.
