I'm looking for other options. Sony costs $150, which I can't really afford.

There are usually a few people on craigslist that offer repairs. But most of the time it's about the same price as sony. I suggest trying to fix it yourself. There are lots of videos on youtube that will show you how.

Thanks. I'm finding some people on craigslist, but not all of them look professional.

Any other options?

I think that is basically it. Maybe try looking for a general electronics repair place?

Maybe this will help if you want to try and do it yourself. A mod Dan_lero posted a blog about him fixing his ylod.

Thanks. I'm not tech savvy to that level, but it looks like it'd be worth a shot if I can't find a local or professional repair person.

Also, thanks to the other poster with the options.

There's only so much people can do, and to be honest it's pretty much only part replacements, anyone with a screwdriver can do just as good as sony so "professional" doesn't really apply here.
