Search online. In the UK there's a company called ps-pros. They fixed mine for cheaper than sony, and sent me the paperwork to claim the money back, which I did and it worked. Go to Sony as a last resort (i'd even buy a new slim console over going to sony tbh) they are expensive and take ages when it comes to PS3 repair.
