  • I think you meant "version", so here is how you can tell what version you have: Version 3 Model SCPH-30003 10 Screws on base of the PS2. Version 4 Model SCPH-30003 Model SCPH-35003 8 Screws on base of the PS2 + Electrical Hazard Warning on the base of the console. Version 5 & Version 6 Model SCPH-30003R 8 Screws on base of the PS2 + Electrical Hazard Warning on the base of the console + letter 'R' after the model number. The version V6 console is really a version 5 with the motherboard connector for the front panel button connecting ribbon reversed. All Driver versions remain the same, therefore this is just a V5 variant. Version 7 Model SCPH-39003 (Bios 080) Version 8 Model SCPH-39003 (Bios 090) Version 9 Model SCPH-5000X Source: http://www.netpcdirect.co.uk/which_vers_ps2.php Or : Version 1, 2 and 3 = 10 Screws at base of PS2 (see screw diagram below) USA SCPH 30001, Serial Number begins with U1 = Version 1 USA SCPH 30001, Serial Number begins with U0 = Version 2 USA SCPH 30001, Serial Number begins with U1, Date Code 1A = Version 3 USA SCPH 30001, Serial Number begins with U2, Date Code 1A = Version 3 USA SCPH 30001, Serial Number begins with U2, Date Code 0D = Version 3 Version 4 (with electrical warning stamped on the bottom) = 8 Screws at base of PS2 USA SCPH 30001, Serial Number begins with U0, Date Code 1C = Version 4 USA SCPH 30001, Serial Number begins with U1 Date Code 1C = Version 4 USA SCPH 30001, Serial Number begins with U2 Date Code 1C = Version 4 USA SCPH 30001, Serial Number begins with U3 Date Code 1B = Version 4 USA SCPH 30001, Serial Number begins with U4 = Version 4 USA SCPH 30001, Serial Number begins with U5 Date Code 1C = Version 4 USA SCPH 35001, GT3 Edition = Version 4 Version note: All SCPH 35001 and V4 with a date code of 1a or 1b are Phoenix/Messiah-compatible.

If and when you have opened your PS2, the motherboard will read off GH-017 Version 8 - SCPH 39001 USA - NO true way to identify your unit until you physically open your ps2. If and when you have opened your PS2, the motherboard will read off GH-022 Version 9 - SCPH 50001 USA - The way to tell if you have a v9 and not a v10 without physically opening the PS2 unit is checking to see what type of material is "holding" the unit in the blue box. Version9 units are being held via a styro foam material. Otherwise the motherboard will read off GH-023 Version 10 - SCPH 50001 USA - The way to tell if you have a v10 and not a v9 without physically opening the PS2 unit is checking to see what type of material is "holding" the unit in the blue box.

Otherwise the motherboard will read off GH-026 You should visit the site for thorough info Source: http://www.ps2cover.com/ps2-modchip-model-number.shtml
