...and everything goes well. Of course, following Exxos' advice, I used branded-low ESR capacitorn (mostly Panasonic FR series).
I changed the TV before and after the modification but I have the feeling the image is much more stable. There is no more a micro-waves effects on the screen. You know, the pixels were dancing a little bit. It is now totally stable.
I don't mean what I did is the right way to do it or it is something we should consider, it is just to give you my experience, for people having the same idea. It works !
