  1. Hi! I have some surface-mount capacitors I need to replace. I don't
    really understand the codes on them. Could someone help decipher the
    values? Thank you in advance.
    One of them has this printed:

    h3
    47
    16V

    Another:

    14
    100
    6V

    47uF / 16V
    100uF / 6V

  3. Thank you! Seems simple enough. So what does the "h3" mean? And the "14"?

    It can be anything but normally it is some identifier for the type of
    capacitor. However there are a lot of manufactures of capacitors that use
    all their own code. If you know who made the capacitor you can check out
    what the specifications are for these capacitors, and otherwise just replace
    those by some good type of capacitor.

  5. Thanks very much for the suggestion. I'll try that.
