Capacitor Upgrade

The Sony SW55 is one of the Sony receivers that suffers from aging surface mount electrolytic capacitors. Consequently, this results in a loss of audio, loss of signal strength or  a motor-boating sound when the volume is turned up.  The capacitor upgrade replaces all the electrolytic capacitors that are prone to fail (or dry-up) with time.

Please Note: the capacitor upgrade is only available at this time by sending the SW55 to Kiwa. The SW55 must be able to come out of CAL and default to the 150 kHz default frequency when batteries have been installed.  If the radio stays in the CAL position and shuts off, the SW55 has other issues other than bad capacitors. The Capacitor Upgrade willl not remedy this problem. The price includes the cost of the parts.

Capacitor Upgrade $130.00
