Hi Henz, haven’t been on here for a while, desolder from the board and test them with a multimeter. If the are discoloured they could possibly be damaged though.

Thanks for the reply. I'm not sure how to test caps with a multi meter. I just went ahead and replaced them anyway. Thanks for helping. Jim.
