PS3 Repair - where? [Zurich]

Hi all,

I have an old(ish) PS3, which stopped reading disks.

As it was quite an old one - bought on release day in the UK, i decided to upgrade to a newer, slimmer, shinier, etc one. This is all fine, no issues.

I now have a situation where it would be good to get the old PS3 back up and running, just for playing games with friends, so the small HDD is not a limiting factor, and it won't be connected to the net etc.

Does anyone know anywhere (ideally in Zurich, but I guess sending somewhere else in CH isn't too much of a hassle) that do PS3 repairs - it is definitely out of warranty, so don't much fancy sending it back to Sony, as that will be pretty steep i'd guess - it probably 'only' needs to have its Blu-Ray reader replaced.

Cheers,
StirB

it's quite easy. I sourced one on ebay from HK.

$50 plus a careful approach.....just need to work out which model it has. If it's that old then it's a single laser jobbie...... videos and guides are on the internet.

I don't want to do this job myself, hence was asking for anywhere that does do the repair a little more professionally than I could.

I got similar issues with my very very very old PS2 but so far I could find anyone doing this in Zurich. I assume if they can repair PS3 they'll be able to do it for PS2 as well.
