I just got awesome idea. How about crowdfunded project that FIXES leaked and ruined capacitors? Problem is mainly water based electrolyte that can't stand heat and dries up. We just add the water back into those electrolytic capacitors. After adding water we just just reseal the vent hole. Since adding water back to capacitor is trivial. We would need the crowdfunding money for the vent hole resealer apparatus.  :-/O :-+
This could save the environment and save planet earth. No need to buy new telly, just get our amazing product that fixes it.

That doesn't help when the actual dielectric is damaged, or spewed all over the inside of your device.

People have paid for more expensive jokes before, they can always fit some costly jokes here and there.

Expensive joke we can all laugh at. "HA HA HA..."  |O

Maybe this invention can also brew some amazing coffee since it already includes some water in it by design? Hmm maybe it can also wash the dishes...
