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 don't have the screw in the expansion slot you have either a new V7 PS2
or an older V1-V4 PS2 board.


The only way that you can now tell if you have a v5 or v6 console is to remove
 the cover and have a look at the connector shown below.



V4 Identification.

The model number can be SCPH-30000, SCPH-30001, 35001,
SCPH-30002, 35002, SCPH-30003, 35003, SCPH-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 hazard warning on the bottom of the case then it is a V4.



 


V1, V2, V3 Identification.

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, 5/6 and 7 consoles can be differentiated from previous versions
 as they only have 8 screw covers on the underside of the console.
