Well I've been having problems with my Samsung Syncmaster 931B and I never bothered to check inside the computer for possible problems linking to the monitor. I just want someone to confirm if these capacitors have gone bad. I know 2 of them are already leaking a little so I know those two are bad, but there are a couple others I'm not to sure about.
This is one of the six that I think are bad. The top of it was puffed up a little bit.

This is the second of the six (only the centered capacitor) it looked pretty much the same as the others.

These are four of the six, two of which are leaking out. The others looked puffed up also.

Yes, The domed , or "bulged" capcitors are bad.
From the looks of it total failure isn't far off.
