Default 2002 Honda accord lx sedan tranny problem?

So the check light came on. Took it to a local parts store so they could use that computer thing. The code that came up is a torque converter solenoid. Is that a easy fix or a hard one? Could I do it myself or do I need a mechanic? I'm taking it in tomorrow to the Honda dealership but I don't want to get ripped off. Please help me out. :/

Many vehicles have a torque converter lockup device operated by a solenoid. Converters normally operate on fluid pressure. This allows the vehicle to come to a complete stop while still in gear. When driving down the highway the lockup solenoid kicks in creating a solid connection between engine and transmission eliminating slippage in torque converter thus increasing gas mileage. This repair job is not for a novice.
