Rubbish photo but the component is marked EA Cm 3
472M 46
It is like a disc capacitor 14mm diameter but with a third terminal in the middle at the back. Blue in colour in the area of the board where the power comes in. The 'C' in the component marking is large with the 'm' inside it.

RE: Component ID

The component in question is the lighter coloured one on the left. There are two one behind the other.

RE: Component ID

Might be a 4700pF 20% 3-terminal capacitor?


RE: Component ID

With you now.. FL3 and the one behind FL4

RE: Component ID

Like geekEE, I believe it is a 2 x 4700pF capacitor and is part of the common mode noise filtering where each capacitor connects to one of the input lines to ground. The two black objects appear to be input fuses - also part of the input protection. Capacitor bypassing input AC voltage to ground as part of the common mode noise bypass are refered to as "Y" capacitors, and are required to meet safety agency approvals. Note the long list of approval agency logos on the part. The light blue part might be from input line-to-line, and if so is refered to as a "X" capacitor.
