Don't see too much corrosion around capacitors.

After capacitors removed, we can see where the corrosion has hurt the solder pads the worst.  We will be treating this area to remove the corrosion and stop the continued effect on the board.

Caps all in and cleaned.  Ready for test of the motherboard and then to fix audio and power boards.
