I wholeheartedly agree. This is where my comment about "shotgun" repairs above originated. Just to make the scope operate, it is way too much trouble and expense to just wholesale replace them all. The tantalum caps will generally let you know when they are bad. My practice is to replace obviously burned or discolored dry ones or leaking, burned or discolored cases on the wet ones. Once this is done, then diagnosis on the individual circuits may lead you to other components that have less obvious failures. This method works very well for me.
Best of luck!
