    There are different types of clock IC. The main difference between the clock IC and others will be the number on it. Did your friendly and helpful service representative give the clock IC type or number?

    The cost of the IC itself may vary widely, but it's likely to be under $20, and even more likely to be under $5. Try this search:

    The expensive part will be the labor to replace the IC. Unsoldering and soldering SMT devices is not exactly a trivial task. It's possible to do with hobbyist-type tools if one is experienced and very careful, but it's painstaking work. The odds of an inexperienced person successfully replacing a SMT device are very poor.
