You are looking at $150 minimum you think? *sigh* Such is the world of disposable electronics.

You sound like you are being sarcastic...but you would rather pay $150 to repair something that costs $200 new? The $200 price point that MS had made their $100 repair service obsolete / seem excessive. You could pay $100 to fix your old one or get the new, smaller model for $200 or get a used for maybe $20-$25 more.

Same with TVs...they used to have whole businesses to repair them, now we just throw them away.

Take it to Gamestop and trade it in.... if it powers up and you have original box and controler and power supply, they will give you $100 for it likey as not... especially with a deal where you get an extra $30 or $40 for trade ins on hardware (that deal happens all the time).

Then buy a new one for $250 with your credit and you get a newer one with a bigger hard drive most likely...

****If you are worried about the stuff on your hard drive, and game on it a lot, grab the new one first, transfer your data, and then trade it in and use the credit on the next few games you want (althoug gamestop credit doesn't go very far since their deals generally suck).

**** never had to transfer data on PS3 (mine is still running strong) Anyone know if the hard drive removes like Xbox or do you have to transfer with some other method?

You should take it to a local repair shop for an estimate. I see local console repair people in my area all over Craigslist....

Why not just use component cables and save $100+?

Our find a local guy on Craigslist that can repair it. I've had someone repair my Bluray about 9 months ago for $75. Still running strong.

It should be $99 from Sony. That's how much any PS3 servicing costs from them.

As mentioned earlier, you can always trade it in to Gamestop. I believe their trade-in values are anywhere from $100-$150 depending on model. Also, Sony's repair prices vary from model to model.
