    Here's how you should identify your PS2:

    Model Number:
    30001 - V1-4. V4(8 screws) V1-3(10 screws)
    30001R - V4-5 5 if there is an extra screw in the expansion bay(meaning all the little holes have screws).

    Then you can look at the serial numbers:
    U1 - V1(10 screws)
    U0 - V2(10 screws)
    U0 - V4(8 screws)
    U2 - V3(10 screws)

    Post back once you have correctly identified it if you still need help.

    Look for a big chip on the bottom of the board, when the writing is facing the right way, look to the bottom left hand corner, where the corner of the chip has no prongs on it. You should see two little "chips" that make an upside down L, where the corner of the L is a little point of solder. That's where the S wire goes. Sorry if it's too vague, just let me know and I'll try to help.

    How do you easily separate the two boards? Do I need to remove the solder on the four (looks like power connections) on the board on the same side as the heatsink?
