PS3 crashing help

I've had my ps3 40gb since oct 08 and just recently it's been crashing. I pretty much only play FIFA. This is what happens, playing on or offline and near half time the commentary will stop but with game still perfectly playable, then score bar and player indicator will disappear with game still playable then at the completion of the game it will not bring up the final score and stats screen it just sits there and you can't do anything but access the console main menu. I've looked on forums and bought cooling devices and have narrowed it down to the blu ray drive being the problem. Basically I need a new lens etc but couldn't be bothered ordering one in from eBay and doing it myself. Is there anyone here who deals with ps3 servicing that I could talk to and get my issue sorted out asap? I could easily buy a new slimline but but would rather salvage what I can by just replacing the lens saving a couple of hundred. Thanks

Nah it's out of warranty and they charge you a 300 slamming for just sending it in, I'm just hoping there is a console service or repairer on this forum or someone who could refer me to someone

I sent mine to Sony on Monday for $250. Gets you a refurbished model and warranty inc shipping and stuff. Still feels like a bit of a rip but I bought it like 3 years ago. hardly use it but now I cbf'd upgrading my comp and there is like 5 games I wanna play.
