here's my story, am hoping some one can help.

My sons PSP e1002 disc motor is not spinning, (laser and all else works fine only motor doesn't spin so in turn UMD disc's are not being read)
so my question is, does anyone have an idea on how much it would cost to repair this, and most repair centres I have called will not give me an indication on an amount without the unit being brought in, which is fine I understand their side on that, but I don't want to pay $45 - $60 on an inspection fee, should the repair cost around the same as buying a new one would at the moment for $150. I have no idea on cost and was wondering if anyone on here would be able to give a ball park figure so I can self asses if I should just buy a new one or get this one fixed.

Can't help with that, but I'm selling my PSP (in good condition) along with 22 games on TradeMe. It does have one minor scratch on the screen, but its not big or distracting enough to detract from gameplay. Apart from that there are no other known issues with it. 

Feel free to make me a reasonable offer on it.
