Is there a repair facility you can strongly recommend?

Hi, I need to have my iPod Classic 160 GB repaired, and though you have a very excellent teardown how-to for numerous issues, I do have a 3-year Square Trade warranty so I would prefer to have someone do it who's a 'crack' expert (no pun intended) at repairing it.

Is there a business or facility in the Los Angeles area that you could strongly recommend or know of?

I believe the issue is the click-wheel as first it was not working on the forward button, now I can't even get into the Diagnostic Mode on it to verify/confirm if it is the click-wheel or possibly the hard drive. I can do very limited things with the click wheel.

The other thing is, I bought this new in December but only started using it in April, so there has not been heavy use on my part.

Square Trade has done very well by me. They haven't repaired anything but they have returned my money on both claims, but shipping costs were prohibitive.

Thanks for the reply....I also had had a phone repaired through Squaretrade but for this iPod I was actually interested in if anyone knew of a top-notch repair facility in the Los Angeles area to recommend based on their experience(s).
