    Anyone know where I can find a good site that show how to identify SMD capacitors that has no markings? I will greatly appreciate if I got this information for my own knowledge.

    I use a capacitor meter. I know of no other way.

    If you are repairing a board and the cap is no good, how would tell what value and voltage it is.

    From the schematic

    edit: or another board of the same type.

    or by looking at capacitors used elsewhere on the board for similar functions

    or with guesswork.

    Yep I think that will do the trick. Thanks Steve.
