I am replacing a 5pf 6kv 5% ceramic disc capacitor on an LG LCD screen inverter board.
I can only find one that is 10pf, not 5. It is still 6kv and 5%.
Is this a big no-no? Or ok?
I just don't know enough, trying to save some $ by fixing my screen myself.
Thx,
Dan

5pF seems an unusually small value to use in an inverter... Given that I'd expect the PCB parasitic capacitances to easily approach this value, 10 pF sounds a reasonable substitute to me :)
Go for it... (and good luck!)

10pF sounds a reasonable to me. If you are really concerned/worried, just put two 10pF caps in series to make 5pF.
