A PS2 Mechacon Crash Could Burn Out Your Laser, The PicFix Mod Could Save It
This Flaw Could Kill Your PS2, Install this Before It’s Too Late

There are several variations of the PS2 that have a fatal design flaw tied to the console’s mechacon chip. This flaw could cause the DVD drive’s laser to burn itself out if you simply put in a game disc that has a scratch on it or if you have a modchip installed and play burned game discs. Inserting a “bad” disc into the PS2 could cause the mechacon to crash which would lead to the laser burning out. This fatal flaw can be fixed with a simple mod, let’s check it out!
