    Tnx for the article, please mention in the article that the capacitor that needed replacement is a 220uF 16V one. I was confused when i didn't find the 330uF 25V. I went on other fora looking for the answer ;-)

    Now i't boots again, mine was a V2.3 made in 2010

    You didnt find the one mentioned in my article? Strange. Capacitors should be available on ebay easily.

    hey, i did find the right one (the place) on the board, the one that is originally soldered on the board is 220uF, there was my confusion. i replaced it with a 330uF as told in your article (found it on an old motherboard)

    My Duo 1 is still working after all these years. But you can easily notice that it doesnt have enough RAM for these days. You can hardly use it. Some cheap boxes like Zgemma are better choices nowadays.
