Hi, recently I bought this DVD recorder off eBay
. The seller said it was in good condition.
I tried to use it as a passthrough and I noticed the picture was extremely noisy. I'll put a short clip recorded from the Playstation 2 menu, but the same goes for VHS and Laserdisc capturing.
This recording was made with the YPbPr output, but the same happens with composite and S Video output. Also, both composite and S Video inputs in every port have the same problem.
Then I opened it, and I saw two leaking capacitors inside, nothing else (except dust) seemed wrong. I'll also attach pictures of the caps.
So here's my question. Are the failing capacitors the reason why the video output has noise?
