  • No, you can’t short the pads. If there’s no capacitor there then there likely never was unless you can see obvious damage. Not all components are placed when manufacturing. A picture would help but it could be a decoupling capacitor which has been deemed unnecessary or not required for the model. So it’s unlikely to be the issue. It could still be other capacitors that are getting old but it would be the electrolytic ones.
