PS3 Repair / Parts

Does anyone have a clue if someone in the D/FW keeps PS3 power supplies (new or used) in stock?
Looking to replace one, but damn, it's almost impossible to find other than having to order one.

Depending on the model it is and version, I have one out of an overheated PS3 laying around.

I found one location listed local that has one, but they aren't replying to emails.

If you do a buy it now it normally only takes 2-5 days to receive stuff.

True, but i was hoping to grab it sooner, not wait for the 2-5 days, and actually get back to playing a game that got cut short.
it's no biggie if i have to wait, i'd just prefer not to.

Yep, ended up not being my problem, or the psu was bad.
Oh well, time to crack this sucker down further.

That power supply is good, it came out of one that red light flashes, and I did thermal paste, etc, and it still didnt' fix it.

I've used that power supply in a buddy's while he ordered another, so he could finish some game.

The thermal paste, heating the chips method works, sometimes.

I got Osirix's working and then a few days later it did the same thing. I even left it running at my place for a day, played a few games and watched a movie to test. He got it back, and used it for about a day before it happened again.
