Can anyone recommend another alternative (cheaper?) service ?

I'll be honest the screens on these things are easy to fix get screen from eBay and watch a couple of YouTube vids

Probably better getting it from aliexpress or Deal extreme etc

One thing these vids never tell you but I always advise ware anti static gloves for these jobs

Easy might be understating it a little. I already considered the option of fixing myself as the screen and other bit you need is only a few quid on ebay. But one popular site had a guided 30 step process with pictures, and it did not include the putting everything back together either. And I saw one guy on a forum who said his 3DS wasn't booting up after he changed the screen.

If it was the top screen I probably would have had a go, that seems more straight forward. But the bottom touch screen I think I'd rather just get someone who knows what they are doing.
