In this tutorial, I will teach you how to mod your playstation 2 to play imports and backups. This process will take 5 (-) minutes. You need swap magic discs which you can find online.

Step 1: Disassembling the ps2.

Turn the playstation upside down and unscrew the screws.
*NOTE* This will void your warranty.

Okay. Now you have it disassembled. . . Do not touch the power ribbon.

I though its the same model as what i have...<br><br>but when i dissasembled my ps2.<br><br>It's not the same..<br><br>My PS2's model is SCPH-90002<br><br>Does someone know how to modify this kind of model?<br><br>
<p>&gt;&gt; [scaryduck21] A little word of advice....</p><p>Don't tell people your PS2 SCPH #</p>
<p>I don't see any harm in sharing the SCPH#. its just a model #. Its not unique to each console. Its not like an IP or MAC address. Besides, the oldest of these consoles are already 15 years old</p>
<p>I know this is a very old comment, but for those looking for the answer:</p><p>You CANNOT mod a PS2 with SCPH-9XXXX</p>
<p>does it work?</p>

<p>I don't see how this would work but</p><p> Does any one know if you can do this to the older fat models?</p>
It works with SCPH 77004?
Words of wisdom... NEVER say your SCHP #
<p>Why is that? As far as I know the most you can tell from the scph number is the ps2 version and region.</p>
so how exactly does putting duct tape on a part do anything to mod it? <br> <br>by this logic i could sprinkle gold dust in it to make it a super computer.
It holds down the sensor that tells the game system it's closed. By taping it down, you manually tell it that it's closed. Then, you tape the toilet paper in to hold the other sensor down (or for a less permanent fix, use a pencil. The way you use backups is through correct timing of when to switch disks.
im gonna give you advice dont modify game system only do it went the system dont work
I'm not gonna lie;I am kinda unable to unscrew the cover...just causing the screw to wear out.
wow,hope it works because it is really sucks to do this professionally,thanks in advance!
one example: notice that the moving array of blue lites is now just one unmoving one. i mean like WTF man!
that means your clock isn't set...
anyone know how to fix this i have the samething on mine. one day it worked then i went to go play it the next day and it did this
Set the clock and calender in System Configuration.
i have copies of ps2 games and im wondering whether this modchipping can help me play the games
Hello, <br>I downloaded swap magic and burned them into a dvd.. When i insert it into my ps2 it says please insert a ps2 format disk . Can anybody help ????<br>
it will not work because u will need an original disk to boot i ve also tried
Hey, to use the burned copy of swapmagic like you are trying to do, you would need a modchip. the original swap disc is burned into an official ps2 disc, therefore the un &quot;modchipped&quot; ps2 will think it is an official game. so the answer is no, you need the original, purchased disc.
do u need to buy the disc or what i did the steps on here but it say u need format disc what that <br>

wish i could do this for my phat<br>worked well for my sisters slim tho
Thanks so much! I did this a little differently but I needed a guide to cover up the first sensor you covered. Instead I covered up sensors A and B while the ps2 was still apart, I found it much easier way because I could tape sensor B into closed position from the bottom. I did a quick test and sure enough, the disk spun with the door open!
can you just use a drop of super glue to keep it down
can it work with the old ps2? <br>
Thanks A lot !!!!<br>
Why do you need this step if u still need a swap disk after this?<br /> I just put a screw into the hole for the stopper and cardboard into the one for the lid and it plays burnt games if i load with real one first.<br /> I thought this step would allow u to not need a swap disk but it doesn't sound like it<br />
you guys are dumb
i found this out when the first psone came out. of course everyone knows you can do this with ps1 discs in the ps2 as well but here is from my old website http://cjp33.tripod.com/nodoc.doc its a guide to play burned psone games using an original disc and a burned disc. its pretty simple. anyone needs any help gettin this to work hit my email up thedarkotaku@hotmail.com
This is the crappiest instructable i have ever seen! It isnt free! It isnt original! It isnt even made by this person!
well what do you have to buy? whats so unoriginal about it? who was it made by?
sorry to reply on a year old comment but you have to buy a swap disc, its unoriginal because he used photos from an after dawn post
who made it then?
I just did the mod but i don't have the swapmagic disc and can't buy one =.= is there any other alternative that works with ps2 slim? or maybe involving downloading swapmagic or something?
I found that in order to get this method to work I had to ensure step 2 was completed (not sure that it was necessary), letter A was pressed down AND that a piece of cardboard was taped taped to letter B.<br /> See this video for a better explanation: <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dPp2jvRRhaI" rel="nofollow">www.youtube.com/watch</a><br />
Hello guys<sub></sub><br/><br/>Just need a little help. I have a ps2 slimline scph 70003 PAL. I bought a swap magic 3.6 recently but I cant play my imports. So, I assumed that I need a flip top to play imports. Now, I saw the intruction on how to block the sensor, but i saw another video in which the person did the same without opening the console. he just uncensored the point A B and C. But here i see you asking to open the console ..am a little confused ..can anyone help ..thanks <br/>
yes the same mod can be done without opening your ps2 however it's easier to open it<br /> <br />

<strong>im just give ya a headsup on your pic posted you have your bar code # covered up {im not sure why but i bet theres a reson } but you left the lines in plain view - there are your bar code an can be read by any barcode reader , if there was a reson to cover the no. you should put something over thous lines as well . dont know if they still give them out free but i had a barcode reader i could hook into the computer to get links to any sights that i had recorded codes of earlyer at the store , or from anything that had barcodes on them around the house .</strong>
