My dad has a bunch of DVD recording machines. He only needs one, but every-so-often it would die, so he'd buy one from eBay (they are discontinued). He held onto the dead ones in case I could fix them. I just opened them up today, and they all have the exact same capacitor that blew. Design defect I guess. I'll order new capacitors and swap them out, and hopefully he can sell them back on eBay.
