Samsung TV
It has 3 Bad 25v 1000uf caps..
I just got a Assortment box of caps an for 25v the highest uf is 330uf....Will these work.???

No,
you will want to get capacitors with the same value of capacitance and the same voltage rating or higher.

For example, a 25V, 1000uF cap would work, and a 35V, 1000uF cap would also work because it has a higher voltage rating. A lower voltage rating, like say 16V, wouldn't work.

The capacitance value (the number of microFarads, or uF) should be the same. in some cases it might be okay to have a higher value, but some circuits rely on particular values to work, so changing the value might cause issues. The safest option is to just use the same capacitance value.

Size is also an important factor, as you will actually want the new capacitors to fit into the same spots as the old ones. Higher capacitance or higher voltage ratings will usually be larger in size, so it is best to find ones that are roughly the same size.
