I've been given a friends PC Power supply to repair. It's a Enermax EG651
(550W) model. It was damaged when he plugged it into a 240V supply while
the voltage select switch was on 115V (Doh!!).

Anyway a quick visual shows that two large ceramic disk capacitors are
blown. The capacitors are mounted next to where the wire from the voltage
select switch joins the pcb. They are marked Z1 and Z2 on the pcb and TVR
10241 on the components themselves, they are about 10mm diameter.

Does anyone know what rating these are?

Also if anyone knows what further damege may have been done (hopefully none
