dead flash on my a5100 ... looking for options

The flash on my a5100 has been dead for some time.

I've been waiting for the price to drop so I could just buy a replacement body. Unfortunately it seems this discontinued camera is still quite popular and has retained the same value or higher from when it was new, about five years ago.

How hard would it be to get the flash repaired?

I normally use the a5100 with a pancake lens like the 16mm f/2.8 or the 16-50 zoom. It fits in my pocket when I don't want to carry the a7ii.

Anybody else ever encountered this?
