Default Re: Blown cap

That ooze almost looks like the tan/brown glue that goes conductive. But I don't see that kind of glue anywhere else on the board, so I don't think that is it. Very surprising that it is leaking out of the positive terminal. As stj said, usually they do it on the negative one. And yeah, that very likely be the reason for not getting power. Just hope nothing else has blown when that cap went.

Also curious what brand of capacitor is that?
