no idea about replacing the lazer

you can get extended warranty from here http://continuousplay.co.uk/

sony may even repair this for free. phone them and ask, its worth a try

yeah worth a try with phoning sony.
surprised the person selling it on ebay aint phoned them as sony are pretty good at still dealing with ppl after the warrenty has past. unless it's an import ps3 then sony uk don't really wanna know.

surely your console is new enough to claim under warranty? If not, take deedies advice and get the extended warranty.
