Looks like a 47uF 10V electrolytic capacitor to me - probably tantalum but
maybe not! Should be easy enough to get hold of. Fitting it (if you are
not familiar with surface mount techniques) is another thing altogether
and that's assuming you haven't damaged the tracks.

I'd try it and see if it works without it first - you might be lucky - and
you'll be less likely to make matters worse that way!!
