    Hello,
    What about the FD-235F 161-U?
    It has the same symptom but no caps.
    Some help?

    @Greg
    Look closer – the 161-U HAS a cap, namely C75, and that is also the one that leaked on me and also damaged the PCB.

    Symptoms are that the motor is spinning too fast, so it can’t read anything. Also the motor continues to spin after a disk is removed.

    something´s wrong above? Mine: FD-235F-161-U
    these are NOT 3x ELKO 22µF. there are 3x normal condensators with 22µF used but NOT with polarity (sadly I ordered Elko´s in advance)
    My Elko on the other side (your second picture) is SMD variant named with C67, labeled J335 > measured: 3,54µF

    btw: no C75 as BenTennyso mentioned
