re: Yamaha RX-V870

Among many other units, I found one of these in my dad's garage. It won't stay powered up (shuts off after a second or two), and upon pulling off the cover, I saw that it had five capacitors that had puked. I *might* be able to tackle replacing those on my own, but 1) Is it worth it for fixing and re-selling or gifting?, and 2) Are five blown capacitors really a symptom of a bigger issue?

Thanks for any input.
