Perhaps.  But not all of it, certainly.  I'm currently four for four
fixing dead flatscreens by re-capping their power supplies; I imagine
others have similar experiences.  It's not a huge stretch to imagine
that other power supplies may have similar issues; even if it turns out
to not be the case, there is probably at least a little "can't hurt
anything, right?" running around.
