Zark, lol - nothing but shipping for GT members, and parts if necessary - but that could be more than you want to spend depending on where you are and what kind of shipping access you have.
Tell me - what kind of shop did you bring it to, what level of expertise re: PS2's specifically? Also were there symptoms prior to the machine's demise, and does it power on now at all? Post here, or email me please, not PM - can't seem to keep the inbox unstufffed, lol.
If it's the cable to the reset button assembly - on a model prior to the slim ones - that's a very easy fix, you might even want to try it yourself if you are at all handy with "tinkering" lol.
