Who fitted the new capacitor? There are one or two sharks out there who will just try to charge it and send it back, or even bodge  a standard battery into it - if it's flashing recharge I can't imagine there being a brand new cell in there. 

Just to clarify, did you charge it with the crown pulled out? That's the best way to get them fully juiced for some reason.

Lastly, if everything IS right it might be worth checking its the right capacitor. Citizen do lots the same size but that run at different powers, I've previously ordered the wrong cell because of that.  Again, it comes down to who changed the capacitor for you.
