    My eMac 1.25GHz falls under the serial of affected capacitor problems. Apple will not fix it because it is over the three year period by 14 months. I am a beginner solderer but I have all of the equipment besides the capacitors. I will attempt to just replace them all but I am worried about how hard this task will be? I have look under the door and it indeed had a blown out "K" capacitor. I have yet to try and disassemble the eMac but that will be my first step. I am not s complete novice but I would greatly appreciate anyone to help me with the needed steps. Please if you have some spare time to help!

    practice soldering / desoldering on a known bad board (not your emac) then go for it (multilayer board, don't go crazy with the heat) !
