As the camera repairman explained to me... "You're not paying me $100 to solder a wire back onto a circuit board... you're paying me $100 because I have the knowledge, ability, and tools to diagnose the problem and fix your camera for you."
I'm sure there are some shops more local to you than Dallas-Fort Worth, but if you need info on a couple down here, I'll be glad to tell you who I've used in the past.
