Where to send out-of-warranty Z3 Compact for repair?

Hey all...


My old Z3 Compact's digitizer no longer works properly.  The Sony support person I spoke with told me to use their "Software Repair" process via Xperia Companion.  I don't think that would have worked anyway, as this definitely looks like a hardware problem; however, I tried to use it.  Unfortunately, that's impossible, because the places on the screen I'm required to tap on in order to get it to work just happen to correspond to some of the dead areas of the digitizer.


The support person said that Sony doesn't do out-of-warranty repairs on Xperia devices, and that I should contact a third party to do so.  They didn't have any lists of places to contact to do that.


Does anyone know of any good 3rd parties who do this work?
