Something else might have gotten damaged as a result.
It also possible that the DVD player quit working for
some completely different reason. My success rate for
resuscitating motherboards is about 50%. Ethan has
had similar success. My success rate for resuscitating
LCD monitors is 100%, but statistically insignificant
at 2 out of 2.
Right now you have a dead DVD player.
You _know_ that it has a bad capacitor.
What do you have to lose by trying to fix it?
Do you need some (free) replacement caps?
