peterrabbithsien, that is not a capacitor. It is reference designator FL21 which is a 10-OHM-200MA Filter. It is a 0201 package SMD, size is 2mmX1mmX0.7mm. So,obviously it is not going to be easy to solder. It is part of your VGA CAMERA CONNECTOR Circuit.

I don't know what kind of capacitor that is but most likely a 500mu which is tiny or may be even smaller charge and if you could even find one, if you have never soldered a component on a motherboard type like this, then you may end up burning the motherboard and also the bus lines within the board then it will be toast for sure, you can try with a very low wattage iron maybe 25 to 30 watt unless this attaches another way, the picture is very hard to see but the rating for the capacitor should be right on top and the connections will be directly underneath which is the problem.............getting to them, sorry I couldn't help any more than that, good luck with that

see I told you the picture was too small I couldn't even tell it wasn't a capacitor and I really haven't had that much experience with phones, so I just learned something!
