Hi all, and thank you in advance.

I need to replace the capacitor pointed out in the picture below, but it's in such a bad shape that I can't read its sides. Does anyone know its ratings? The picture below is not the real board, BTW.

Thank you very much for your help.

The cap is 2.5v with a 1 Farad capacitance.

FYI, that cap is only responsible for keeping the time set in the event that unplug your xbox from the wall outlet, so you don't really need to replace it, unless you have a super old softmod, or no M$dash installed. Simply removing it when it begins to leak it is sufficient.

Thanks a lot! So, yes, it is leaking, and already not working, because the Xbox loses the time as soon as I unplug it. Well, you have saved me from some work, I'll just remove it. Thanks again!
