If you have a SCPH-50002, 50003 or 50004 AND you can find a small "a" after the modelnr you have a v10 console.
Note: Another way to find out if its a v9/v10 start up PS2 with no game in it, press triangle and check dvd driver version: DVD VER 3.00 = v9, DVD VER 3.02 = v10
If your model is SCPH-50000, 50001, 50010, 50002, 50003 or 50004 you have a v9.
If your model is SCPH-39000, 39001, 39002, 39003, 39004 or 37000 you have a v7.
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 have a V5/V6 main board.
Make sure to double check that the screw shown below is actually in your system.
Simply take out the EXPANSION SLOT cover,turn round your PS2 and check to see if the screw shown below 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 or V7 PS2 baord.
The model nr can be SCPH-30000, SCPH-30001, 35001, 30002, 35002, 30003, 35003, 30004, 35004. If the marked 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 CAUTION warning on the bottom of the case then it is a V4.
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 4-11 consoles can be differentiated from previous versions as they only have 8 screw covers on the underside of the console.
