Help about my PS2

by Dark Reaper / December 13, 2006 4:32 AM PST

I have a PS2 which is the 50000 model. I'm having trouble right no because it wont read any games. Whenever I try to load a game, you will hear a clicking sound or something like that. I already consulted a technician and they say that the culprit is the IC and the lens. Now fixing the lens and the IC is like buying a new unit. They also told me that it is the common error of the 50000 model wherein the lens and IC tends to get damaged easily. Is this true? Please help me make a decision. Thanks in advance.

Actually, I was looking for having it fixed instead of buying a new one but the technician said that 50000 model can get easily damaged specially with regards to the lens and IC. That's why im very hesitant whether I would buy 1 or not.
