    i got a v3 ps2 and i've been having trouble finding a fliptop for this version. i ordered one from clearxbox.com but it didnt fit. and unfortunately while i was tryin to install that fliptop i somehow disconnected the ribbon that connects to the power and eject buttons, and i dont know where to connect it back to. thanks for the help

    look on the side of the main board. Ther eare 3 ribbons plugged in there normally, you should only see 2 plugged in now, and the 3rd (your eject cable) will plug into the empty slot

    double check that you didnt get any of the pins on the cable bent over. They bend very easy and can peal right off the ribbon cable.

    or, you can just make your own. Thats what I did for my brothers V1 PS2. Just hack the top up and JBweld a hinge on it. Then you need to hack the top of the CD cover up. But you can JBweld that on too so it will have the magnet thing still in it. It took about 30 minutes to make the whole thing.

    And since you are planning on getting a flip top anyway, if something goes wrong you can stiull just get the real flip top and put that on.
