It actually happened to me, twice: an old pace mss1000, unplugged while 
on holiday, didn't turn on when I came back, I had to recap the power 
supply. One year later the same happened to the tv (this time it was 
just one capacitor in the power supply).
Oh, and bad capacitors is a known a plague in many motherboards (yes, I 
have one that failed due to bad capacitors, you can see those for the 
leaked electrolyte or the bulged top, and even my current vdr machine 
needed a replacement capacitor).

Bye.
