Question Broken orange thingy off PCB! Anyone know what it is?

Hi Folks

I'm wondering if any of you may be able to help me with a problem I've got with my Creative Vision M player. (which by the way has been a fantastic little device until my self inflicted issue occurred ).

It was purchased whilst travelling (Singapore), and as the problem occurred after I dropped it I believe I am not entitled to warranty service. Not that I'm really sure I'd want to try that option now I'm residing in Australia.

So the problem is I cannot power it on - the on/off switch pulses blue but no visual on the LCD. Shaking the device I can hear something rattling around inside it (never a good sign!) .

However, I am a techie so I hit the web and found out how to open the device and have located the problem. It appears a capacitor (labelled "C7" on the pcb board) has been snapped off by the accidental drop. In the picture attached is the thing I'm referring to (circled in red).

Does anyone know what sort of capacitor this is - that way I can have a go at locating one in town and soldering it back on.
Otherwise, anyone know how to source a PCB board in Australia - I've tried Creative Support and got no response from them.
