What? If that is really true you must have applied an extra high voltage or
manipulated the Newton in some other non-appropriate way. I could try to
repair it but without any guarantee of success. Which capacitor is 'burned
out' (give the P/N, colour, dimensions, position etc. may be photograph) and
what exactly do you mean with burned out? I understand that its case is
cracked and the innards are black and hanging out, or in the case of an
electrolytic capacitor I would expect the slimy liquid beeing everywhere and
starting to etch tracks and contacts ;-) Did you observe all this?
