Here's a chart of the capacitors in the Turbo Express. I'm not sure but I'm assuming that the JPN version is the same. Hopefully this will make repair work for people a bit easier.

Please feel free to use it, but don't claim that this is yours or try to make money off it. That's not why this is here...

As always questions and comments welcome.

Special thanks go to Nat for adding some missing information, and to Custm42435 for making a correction :D

RG - this is really nice. I liked using your Duo chart, that was very helpful! For those installing - try to not go more than 2X the original voltage.

NICE frigging chart!!!!
I suggest a sticky for this, if possible.
Also need somebody to update the Duo version of this, version I have from Duo_R only has uF, not voltages....

Thanks  :D

I'll update the Duo chart if you'd like (if mine is the one you're talking about?). It's listed here in the repair/mod forum somewhere. Just search for "Duo total capacitor replacement chart".

Just a standard 15 watt soldering iron is fine. You can get one at Radio Shack if you need one. I think they're about $8.

This chart needs to be a sticky! :)

ok now my question... What would happen if I replace the Audio with 33uF 6.3V caps? nothing?

How dangerous is it to go above the current voltage?
