SoundTouch 10 not powering on, replaced port but same.

As titled, I have dead SoundTouch 10. I replaced port but still doesn’t power on. One thing I notice is the big fat cap that suppose to hold charge is hissing. Does that mean cap is bad? or can it boot without the cap if I remove that capacitor?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi,

“Does that mean cap is bad? or can it boot without the cap if I remove that capacitor? “

YES and then NO.

It is faulty and most probably it will not power on with it missing.

If you can hear a hissing sound coming from the capacitor, it is venting.

Be safety aware:

The gas expelled from a venting capacitor is more than 100°C. Never expose hands or face to a venting capacitor. If your eyes are exposed to the gas, flush with water immediately. If the vapor is inhaled, gargle with water. Electrolyte leakage may occur after a capacitor vents. If the electrolyte comes in contact with the skin, wash with soap and water

Disconnect the power from the board and replace the capacitor and then re-evaluate the problem
