Rescued LCD TV - Bad Capacitors

I got this dead Finilux 32-inch LCD TV from Chris on Freegle. The power board was doing nothing, no voltages, so I took a good look at the capacitors and 6 of them were bulging and suspect. Raiding the spares box, I found replacements for all 6 capacitors and upped the voltage rating on 4 of them just to be on the safe side. Re-assembled the television and it is working like new.

Here it is running off a Raspberry Pi Kodi box via HDMI playing a music video on Vimeo. Picture quality is excellent.
