A relatively new user asked this question about repairing a faulty capacitor on his TV but it was put on hold as off-topic due to a policy that "repair" questions are considered off-topic.

However, it doesn't appear to be an absolute rule that "repair" questions are off-topic -- the top answer to the meta question on the policy says that the rule exists because they are in general too localized.

But this question has an underlying design question: how does one build an equivalent capacitance (here $1500\mu$F) out of capacitors that do not have the desired capacitance?

I think this is a useful question and is not too "localized". Should it simply be re-worded so that it is not about repairing a TV?
