Actually, It is more than likely the caps. As caps lose their capacitance over time they discharge less and less current to the circuit. Resulting in dimmer light, and fauly logic circuits/ic's and the like. I would go ahead and perform the Cap install which should fix it, even if it pans out to be something else, you will inevitably have to replace them anyway.
