Looks like I found this thread a little late. My Series 3 collapsed two weeks after the warranty ran out...
Well, if it's due to bad capacitors, it probably can be fixed. Same for bad power supply in general, or bad hard drive. They can all be replaced.

If you have a lifetime subscription, may be worth repairing. Especially if you can diy.

Wanted to say thank you to the OP. Because of your post I was once again able resurrected my S3 with lifetime.
How did you accomplish? Yourself, or did you find a service?

Looking for a reasonable cost(?) service for mine. :(

I purchased the parts through Digi-Key and did it myself. It took about an hour to replace all of them. Make sure you have a good soldering iron, desoldering braid, solder and a magnifying glass.
Thanks. No exp with solder.

Will just do without until I can find a cheap service.
