I'm seriously not too sure on what that brand is or it's series, but i do believe that it's a United Chemicon. But in the world of capacitors, as long as you replace it with something of the same spec, the board doesn't care because simulation software and CAD for the PCB just runs the numbers.

Should be a 180 microfarad 16 V solid organic eletrolyte capacitor. If you wanna buy a new one i can suggest a few brands but try United Chemicon's Part numbers APXH160ARA181MJ80G or APXA160ARA181MJ80G. IF IT IS SMD. (Meaning that the legs are mounted on the face of the board)

For Throughhole (meaning that the capacitor's legs go straight through the board), try this part number from Vishay, 94SP187X0016EBP.

For the actual purchases, punch these numbers into sites like Digikey.com, FarnellNewark.com, Mouser.com and Alliedelec.com

R should mean Resistor. C should mean Capacitor. L means Inductor. EC means Electrolytic Capacitor and so on. So i figure that you're probably missing a resistor.

560 should mean 560 ohms. For example if the resistor reads 56R2, the number behind R should indicate the the amount of zeroes, and thus 56R2 should be 5600 ohms. So the part you are missing is a resistor of 560 ohms.

Ok, now to get something that fits. Generally size doesn't really matter as long as you can mount it, and it's 560 ohms, don't worry, it should work fine.

You can purchase SMD resistors from Mouser.com, Digikey.com and Alliedelec.com. Make sure you measure the resistors, and get one which size matches. Measurements are usually in mm.

When you wanna solder it in, use the slide method of soldering.

1) Blob on side of the pad with a little solder
2) Put the resistor on the surface of the board (not on the pad)
3) Heat the pad and at the same time while the solder is still liquid, slide the resistor into the pad.
4) Solder the other side.
5) Enjoy

Now that wasn't too hard right?
Hi there again, I went to the local tv-repairshop, and bougth the resistor 560 smd. and have now put it in its place (solded)
That was as u said real easy. But still i got some graphic problems. I can run windows vista without any trouble, and nothing seems to be wrong, but when i open pictures i have some vertical stripes. in like tree couloumbs .In games aswell, then its even more. like all over,,but when i "walk" some spots is turning normal, untill i walks further. Do you have anny sugestion what causes this? and what i can do, or is it best to just forget about the card and toss it?
btw:i cant english to well, hope u understand it anyway

You forgot to tell me where you live , because standards are different around the world, forgot to remind people of that. That 560 here in Asia (we don't follow European EIA standards) would mean 560, but in other places it could mean 56 ohms. So why don't you try 56 ohms and see if the nasty stripes go away. If it doesn't try boosting the voltage.

Sorry for not reminding you of it, even i forget stuff too

hi again,
ok, i c, same as we have another measurements for hight's and mass.
I am gonna try the first suggeston first- change the resistor to a 56 ohm(but since we import all computer-hardware from other countries (usa, taiwan,china and so on)i guess the card pritty much is a "standard" card.)
The card is a kind of damaged as it is so im not afraid of trying other solutions like boosting the power, if i only knew how.
one more thing, do you know where i can find forums (ive been loooking for 3 hours myself) for solving how to get a hp flashcard I/II (5-pinns connection) to work in a standard pc, i know there is a "usb to 5 connectors" cable, but dont want to try that unless i have "talked" to someone first.
I'm from Norway, scandinavia btw
AND THANX alot for helping me here

Hi everyone
This is my first post here, I'm from Croatia and you have to excuse me for my english
I have broken PixelView 6800GS PCI-E
As you can see the SMD capacitor is broken and I can't put it back
Now I must find replacment for him but here where I live there is no shop where I can find SMD, only "regular" (I hope you know what I mean)
The problem is that these leters and numbers on capacitor (BH 100 ETZ) mean nothing to me and I was hoping that you can tell me how many volts and farads must be replaced with
I hope that U have inough info to help me, if you dont just ask
THNX

You see the two extra holes in the middle of the pad? i pretty much figure that you can replace the SMD compoent with a throughhole one by using that hole.

You probably need around 5-8 volts @ 100 uF. Becareful to select low ESR, DCL and loss capacitors.

Default Graphics Card Repair Guide Rev. 2.0

The article has just been updated!

If your expensive graphics card ever pops a capacitor after its warranty expires, is that the end of the road? Fear not! All is not lost.

Let Empire23 show you just how you can turn your dead card into a fully-working graphics card. All you need are a few cheap tools and some chutzpah.

Quote from the article:-
Quote:
" This is going to be a simple guide on repairing most physical damages that may afflict your graphics card or other add-in boards. Do note that this kind of work will void your card's warranty. So, if your card is still covered by warranty, you do not want to resort to this method. "
