cap values on DM power board

I was getting ready to perform repair for blinking green light on my old Mitsubishi WS-65511. Pulled the DM power board and noticed the values on the caps are 1000uF 25V. I had read to buy replacement caps that are 1000uF 16V so that's what I bought. Any advice as to what to do? I'm confused. Thanks in advance.

jrmcdown, I just double checked the schematic and the 1000uF are all 16V. May be these have been changed once before. You are okay with using the 16V per schematic.

Thanks soldered in the new caps. Unfortunately must be something else. have constant blinking green light now. Thanks for answering my question though. I think the 25V were installed by TV repairman from previous problem.

Generally, you are safe if you use over-rated caps. So you could replace 16v with 25v or 50v caps, but you wouldn't want to use 16v caps if 25v were required. - I've heard the 16v caps spec'ed by Mitsubishi are under-rated, so generally when being replaced it's a good idea to use 25v or greater.
