Re: Dark deposit on pins near leaking SMD electrolytic caps
I'm not the first to mention the problems of Formula 409 on plastic. However, I should mention that Simple Green may have some of the same chemicals, which indicates that a thorough rinse is highly suggested. The TDS 500 and 600 series have potentially nasty capacitors in them, so part of the re-capping process is to go through and do a scrub with simple green, rinse, dry thoroughly, (possibly use 91% alcohol to help remove the water), then re-cap as needed.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

Hi Harvey,Most people seem not to like 409 because of its effects on plastic.Good info about 409. Although I don't keep it long on the PCB it is quite strong, time to switch to Simple Green.
