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


    if you have a V5/V6 PS2 main board.

    The model numbers can be SCPH-30000R, 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 is actually in your system.
    Simply take out the expansion slot cover,turn round your PS2 and check to see if the screw is in your console, if it is, you have a V5/V6 console.

    If you dont have the screw in the expansion slot you have an older V1-V4 PS2 baord.

    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 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.


    if you have a V1,V2 or 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.
