I think this may be exactly the issue. There was some crust/gunk
(highly technical term for it) on a few of the capacitors, and I
scraped most of it off.
Would this have been caused by overheating, age, or something else (or
impossible to tell as it is a case-by-case situation)? I just don't
want to have to repeat this process with a my replacement card.
