I started on this last night, here are a couple of pic for reference for anyone else that wants to take a shot at this. I'll update with more posts as I go.
First off, decapping and cleaning the audio board.
So this is what it looks like:
|You can see all the gunk from the leaking caps around the coil.|
|More horrible leaked electrolyte on the bottom of the board|
|The target cap is the little guy in the bottom left|
|Snipped in half|
Start by snipping the cap in half. These things stink like bad fish :( nasty...
Once you have half of the cap off you should be able to gently remove the bottom half leaving the two legs exposed.
|Most of the cap removed|
|Board after de-soldering all the caps|
Finish off with a good circuit board cleaning spray or as close to 100% isopropol alcohol as you can get and it comes up fairly nicely:
