Default Pioneer DVR-215 capacitor salvaging (guide)

dvd players/burners are a great source of tiny 4-10uF capacitors. i took some time to salvage and measure some caps from a pioneer 215 (the SATA version of the 115D) for people who don't have a capacitor tester.
most of the caps are in the same spots for the 115D as well.

these caps are useful for putting across the pins of your laser, and for making boost drivers.

i think there are a couple more 10uF up near the large ribbon connector which i salvaged earlier.

I found the best way to salvage these caps is to add solder to each end, then hold your iron paralell to the component so you are heating both ends at the same time, wait a second for the solder to properly melt, then push it to the side.
if the cap ends up stuck to the soldering iron, you can carefully use your fingers to pull it off, because the cap is so small you don't get burned, especially if you roll the cap between your fingers as you do it.

Wow nice job, that definitely would have been useful while I was waiting for my caps from sureelectronics and westfloridacomponents.
