Well, I WAS going to get a mod chip....
Well, I WAS going to get a mod chip.... –
So, I was just about to order the mod chip of my choice.
I was just double checking what version of the PS2 I have....
Thats where I ran into my problem.
For years I thought I had a V1 PS2.
My serial number begins with a "U1" and the other date number is "0D."
But last night I opened my PS2, and I don't know why I never noticed this before, but on the mother board it said "GH-006."
So, what I really want to make sure is exactly what version do I have?
Is it a V1 (serial number is U1, date number is 0D).
And the board itself actually says "GH-006"....
So is it a V1 or a V3?
Thanx in advance.
It doesn't really matter if you have V1 or V3. As long as you have the diagram for the GH-006 board it is ok.
You have another problem. V1-3 is extremely old. The laser is probably worn out by now unless you play it once a month. If you're going to mod it you're gonna get crappy laser performance.
You should sell it on ebay then buy a new PS2 to mod.
I got my PS2 version 1 modded recently with the Matrix Infinity. At first, I could not get anything to work with it...I thought that indeed my laser has worn out. But I thought to myself, how could this be...I rarely played with my PS2...as it turned out, I just needed to clean the laser with a cotton bud and alcohol, and everything worked.
My second option was to buy a brand new laser from ebay for about $25 shipped. Good thing I tried cleaning first.
If I were you, I'd try playing a burned DVD movie on your PS2 first...make sure you use quality media only (I use only Ritek G04 DVD-R, burned at 1X speed). If that doesn't play, try cleaning your laser. If that still doesn't play, then you're better off selling your PS2 and getting a new one modded...as T07N has suggested.
