Paia 2700 Power Supply Capactor Replacement Question

Post by patrickvf »

I need to replace all three of the big capacitors on the power supply, and I wanted to do this quickly. So I went to a nearby Radioshack but they were out of those that matched the ones on the board (25V, 1000uF) and the next best ones that I saw were 35V, 2000 uF, so I got those instead. My question is will the 10 extra V capacitance affect the output voltages in any way? I can't help but think that if I put in the 35V ones, the volages for the modules are gonna be off. Can someone answer that for me?

The capacitors rated to withstand 35 volts can be used as replacements for the ones rated at 25 volts without any adverse affects on your 2720-7 Power Supply Module.

That is very good news. Now if you could help me out with the topic about the 4720 VCO and 4730 VCF, that would be even better ;)
