Can I do anything about an auto repair guy who ripped me off?

It looks like I've been sort of ripped off by an auto glass repair guy. Is there anything I can/should do?

I broke the rear driver's side window of my car. I found a repair guy through a google search and his web site seemed no better or worse than anything else that turned up. He came out to my place and installed a new window. I wrote him a check for $195 (which he's already cashed), he spent maybe an hour fixing it, and then he left.
It's a power window, but it doesn't roll down at all now, and hasn't since the first time I got in my car after he installed it. I left him a message that night and then called back and spoke to him the next day. He said that that was odd because it had worked for him, and he'd call me the next morning to schedule a time to come back. He didn't call, so I called him and he told me he'd be over in 2 hours. He never came. I left him a couple more messages asking why I hadn't heard from him, etc., and he still hasn't called me back. The last time I said that if I didn't hear from him I was going to assume that he'd ripped me off and would tell people as much.
It's not the worst thing, because I have a window now, and he cleaned the glass out of my car and everything, but I want to be able to roll it down and it bothers me that he's just blowing me off. Is there anything else I should do about this?
