what cause it is: remooving sim card using a pen!!!!! don't do this
I have exactly this problem - the same capacitor. The SIM card is very difficult to remove without some kind of implement - in my case a paperclip - why would RIM put capacitors right there, knowing this? I manually rotated the misaligned cap and pushed it into the contact, and by BB worked for a while. However, I didnt expect this to be a permanent solution, and sure enough, my BB is dead again. Trying the same technique a second time resulted in the cap coming loose - I have it in a plastic bag now. Im hoping I can solder it back on myself, even though it is a VERY small surface-mounted cap. I have precision soldering tools at my disposal, but Im worried that excessive heating of the cap will damage it, or loosen other soldered components. Any advice?
