Hi Raj,

congratulations on your successful repair, your image is typical of what you need to look for with failed capacitors. Regarding the life span of your repair, we use 5000 hours life rated capacitors which we would expect to last the lifetime of the average TV, but ambient operating temperature and a host of other influencing factors effect the overall lifespan. Here are a couple of links to technical explanations of capacitor life expectancy if you want to full understand all the ins and outs,
