Electricity.. Capacitors question?

I'm fixing my TV by replacing a few Capacitors.

The question is:

- The capacitors the TV has say: "10 v 1000 uf"

- The capacitors I have say "10 v 1000 uf"

They both say the same thing, but the ones that are on the TV are taller than the ones I have bought.

Is there any problem, or is it ok, or anything???

    capacitors come in all different sizes and shapes.

    While for a given type like aluminum electrolytic, the volume tends to be the same for a given capacitance and voltage value, but they can be different also.

    as long as they fit and don't hit anything, they are fine.

    Edit: I'd replace them with 15 volt units, if you can find any that fit. Using a voltage rating too low for the application is one of the major causes of cap failure.

    the dimensions/shape of the capacitor is unimportant. It basically needs to slot interior the gap you have. even nonetheless, I do ask your self why you think of adjusting capacitors will restoration your television. there are assorted different factors which would be undesirable.

    If you can fit the capacitors on the PCB board they should work fine. Just understand these are electrolytic capacitors and must be installed with the right polarity.
