Donations are very much appreciated but not required. Thanks so much if you donated even a Dollar. Everything is appreciated.
Check out my Blog for a written step-by-step guide: http://ps3fixylod.blogspot.com/ There is also a PS3 repair site (PS3 Repair Center) in the margins under the videos on the right side of the page of my blog that charges $65 for repair. I haven't tried them but they have a 24 hr turnaround with a 90 Day Warranty.
