It scares me for sure. Did the caps leak all over the board. But I don't know how you find these beaten up old boards.. lol...

Actually the boards doesn't have to be beaten up. I've recapped many of them that seemed OK at first look. After the leaked cap is removed usually this is what you find underneath.

Indeed, I got 3 non-working a600 boards from here recently, they are in better shape (in regards to the capacitor pads) than the boards I pulled from my "working" a600's :(
