Does anyone know of someone local who can fix PS3's

My sons one is not reading any discs and we've tried cleaning the laser...

As i'm sure you can imagine this has been the official end of the world :(

Sony will replace a faulty PS3 for about 40, I know someone who had theirs since the release date, it broke a few month back and was replaced with the new slimline version, give em a ring and see.

Hi Kitty
Have you tried the number? Just wondering how you got on as a friend has a similar problem with his PS3.

Hey Geo, no i haven't because we opened up the the PS3 to clean the laser so very much doubted that they would agree to help once the seal had been broken :)

The same thing happened to our ps3.We bought a new blu ray laser off the internet,and managed to fit it,and it's worked fine since then.It was quite complicated to fit, watched on you tube how to do it,but if we managed sure you will.:).
