My wife bought a SONY SS-TS551 for me last year and it lasted only 2 months. now it wont play dvds at all now. i took it to a local electronics guy and he said he can fix it but it would cost hundreds of dollars to fix and it wouldnt be worth it.

I'm guessing the laser is stuffed on it? can i fix this myself with the right parts or should i throw away and buy a new system??? please help me i just brought a 32 inch lcd today and need to get this thing going!!!!!!

If someone says they can fix it for some hundreds of dollars then they must know what is wrong. You shouldn't need to guess what is wrong.

Do you still have the receipt? Standard Warranties and all, not to mention Consumers Guarantee Act (or whatever it is)?
