    Hi there,
    Iam new to all of this and have recently purchased a secondhand ps2. I was wondering how do i check if my console has a modchip in it. Before i start to create backups.
    Thanks any help would be great.

    Take it apart and have a look. Probably the only way.

    well, you could try putting a copied cd or dvd game in, if it boots without you doin anything special you got a free winner... or, you could open it up and see if theres a chip with wires comin out of it that doesnt blend in at all

    i would reccomend norcalmods.com.... 60-100 dollars for the install, plus the chip and return shipping. 60 dollars for the worst chip, apple pro... ( they have several chips in between) and 100 dollars for the matrix infinity, being pry the second best chip on the market
