Some patient potting removal and careful soldering could salvage that.I see wires cut off at the filling in the center section and I’m not sure it’s saveable,
You need a capacitor within a limited range of specs. They aren't a common capacitor. Several variants that have proven to work have been posted including the ones in the pic below. Someone posted a good link several months ago from a source in Taiwan with a limited quantity of the Philips chips. I ordered a couple and received them in six days. The rest were gone within a couple of days once the availability became known.I did the fix as well, and i think I have the right capacitor.
