if the capacitor is leaking then the capacitor is damaged and is going to explode (i have exploded a capacitor of 6.3v by putting it on 24 v battery (2*12v).also by heating a capacitor it will explode)

:hello: definitely the capacitor is damaged, so you need a new board

i agree with you, replace capacitor and we are good to go
only need is the identical capacitor, this will cost under 1$
but if the board is many years old, then other capacitor may start to leak after some months
