Pretty much. I took apart my VT52 about 2 years ago because it wasn't
happy. Turned out the +5 and +15 volt supplies were good but the -15 was
After fiddling around with capacitors and transistors I took the easy
way out and just put in a 7815 regulator, bypassing the old -15 volt
system. Secured it to the heat sink and the display works perfectly now.
For something like that replacing old technology with new is OK by me...

Well, just answered my own question ? went back and tried to be a little more assertive,
and yes, the white cap is in fact just a pressure fit on the black anode connector at the
