Some capacitors are non polarized so you just install them however. Generally specifically needs to be postive to postive one leg will be longer than the other or there will be some type of marking on the capacitor like a line on one side or a small - or + sign on it.
^yup
Looks like a "dipped mica" cap which is not polarity sensitive.

Very odd way for that cap to fail. I expected to see an electrolytic cap expanded.

I would check all of the caps on the board.

I would be concerned the spillage of that cap may have shorted one or more of those pin-points...a close inspection is needed.

Well got it changed out and the unit is running without any speaker attached. Before I took it apart I disconnected everything and just turned it on with the dvd playing and about 5 minutes later it shutoff it's self off. Its still running now but I'm going to let it run for an hour or so and see what happens. Thanks again for all you help.
