I can vouch that this is an easy repair. I've fixed four out of four 
LCDs - by replacing only the visibly bad caps - in the past few weeks 
(Samsung, Acer, and DCLCD). One shudders to think of how many fine 
working screens must get thrown out every day for such a trivial fault.

For the first time I did it, I found the threads at http://badcaps.net/
