Default Identifying you PS2 version #

sponsored links
I notice this question is brought up alot, so I figured maybe you could sticky this....


If your model # is SCPH-50000, 50001, 50002, 50003 or 50004 AND if you can find DATE CODE 3D as shown below, you have a V10 PS2 main board.




If your model # is SCPH-50000, 50001, 50002, 50003 or 50004 you have a V9 PS2 main board.



Only released in the japanese market. The model # can be SCPH-39000 or SCPH-39006 (GH-022 BIOS 090).



If your model# is SCPH-39000, 39001, 39002, 39003, 39004 or 37000 you have a V7 PS2 main board.


Please check below if you have a V5/V6 PS2 main board.

The model numbers can be
SCPH-30001 R
SCPH-30002 R
SCPH-30003 R
SCPH-30004 R
SCPH-30006 R
But also some SCPH-30000, SCPH-30001, SCPH-30002, SCPH-30003 and SCPH-30004 PS2 have a V5/V6 main board.

Make sure to double check that the screw shown below is actually in your system.
Simply take out the expansion slot cover,turn round your PS2 and check to see if the screw shown below is in your console, if it is, you have a V5/V6 console.

[B]If you dont have the screw in the expansion slot you have an older V1-V4 PS2 board or a V7 board.[/B]



Please check below if you have a V4 PS2 main board.

The model # can be SCPH-30000, SCPH-30001, 35001, SCPH-30002, 35002, SCPH-30003, 35003, SCPH-30004, 35004
If the marked screw doesn't show up in the expansion bay of your PS2 then please take a look on the bottom of the PS2 case. If there is an electrical hazard warning on the bottom of the case then it is a V4.



Please check below if you have a V1/V2/V3 PS2 main board.

Turn the playstation upside-down and check how many screws there are.
The screws are covered by black plastic or rubber hole covers.
You can easily remove the screw covers by prying them off with a small flat head precision screwdriver.


If you have 10 bottom screws you have a V1, V2 or V3 PS2 model.
Version 4, 5/6 and 7 consoles can be differentiated from previous versions as they only have 8 screw covers on the underside of the console.

Console Versions 1 to 3

Console Version 4, 5/6, 7
