    Hello all, I am trying to replace this damaged component (
    http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3282/2852332506_8ce5251b53_m.jpg ). I'm
    pretty sure it's a surface mount capacitor but I can't figure out
    what
    it's values are or where to get a replacement (digikey?). Can I just
    replace it with a standard radio-shack cap of the same capacitance?
    Thanks to anyone who can help!

    I did find that, but as you said, don't know which one is the value. I
    remember once seeing a website that could decode these but I can't
    find it.

    I'm guessing 100uF 16V.

    Since its obviously a SMD electrolytic, the value suggested elsewhere of 2pF
    is monumentally silly!

    Its hard to judge the size with no other reference so if it was the 108 at
    the bottom indicating a one a zero followed by a multiplier of 8 zero's that
    could be 1000uF, but it doesn't look that big so I'd go with the top number
    "100" as 100uF and 16V.

    Yes it's a surface mount electrolytic cap. Quite possibly 100uF, 16V.

    Does that make sense in the circuit context ?

    A capacitor in a metal can? I don't think so.

    Another important question is 'how' is it damaged? Physically knocked
    off the board? They can be re-installed if the pads are still OK. We
    buy 100uF 16V SMT caps in reels of 1000 to work on Sony Digital
    BetaCam machines. SMT 'lytics - from our viewpoint - are the worst
    pieces of crap ever to hit the electronics industry. The failure rate
    is astronomical - at least the ones in Panasonic and Sony. We use the
    Panasonic 'FK' or 'HD' series as replacements.

    I couldn't agree more. They have a dreadful reputation are aren't even
    cheap. Give me through-hole any day for non size critical applications.
    They don't actually take up any more room if you get the miniature ones.
