While I was installing a capkit for the MS8-26SG chassis I noticed this "fix" between C431 and C432, personally I don't think this is from factory because the soldering job is awful and the cap that was there was from a different brand but the correct value, this is my first cap kit installation so I didn't wanted to put C431 and C432 before asking, the monitor is having a vertical deflection issue where the image is a little shrunken vertically and AFAIK this caps are directly related to this issue.

What I think it happened is that somebody tried to fix this issue changing the cap and while trying this ruined the C432 cathode trace and it only had one cap so ended up doing this ugly bridge putting the C432 anode in the C431 anode trace.

I just need a more experienced confirmation to put the two caps properly.

Thank you!

I have recapped a couple of these chassis and that is defiantly a fix gone wrong, tracks damaged while removing a component. It’s easy to do I lifted a track myself, they get quite brittle from the heat.

It's just two caps wired in series that someone replaced with a single cap.
