V14 Modbo modchip installation diagram

One of the revisions of the slim PlayStation 2 was the V14. They were found in SCPH-7500x models available worldwide. These were the very first version of the PS2 slims that had a reduced number of compatible PS1 and PS2 games. Matching console model numbers and board numbers are listed below.

You can find the model number on the sticker on the bottom of the console, and the board number is printed on the PS2 main board if you take apart your console. Note that there can be multiple board numbers within a specific model number.

  • NTSC-J (Japan):
    • SCPH-75000 CW (GH-036-51)
    • SCPH-75000 SS (GH-037-12)
  • NTSC-U/C (USA)
    • SCPH-75001 (GH-032-32, GH-036-51, GH-037-01, GH-040-51)
  • PAL
    • SCPH-75002 (GH-041-14)
    • SCPH-75002A (GH-041-14)
    • SCPH-75003 (GH-041-14)
    • SCPH-75004 (GH-040-12, GH-041-04, GH-041-14)

Note that there are multiple versions of the Modbo modchips available, but the installation diagrams are all the same. Some example versions are Modbo 3.0, Modbo 4.0, Modbo 5.0, and Modbo 750.

There are a lot of diagrams out there for this model. I’ve included all of the diagrams I have, but will likely be removing the ones that appear to be duplicates in the future.

Installation tips

Here are some tips I have for you when you are soldering your chip into a V14.

  • Using 30 AWG solid core wire works well for most of the points.
  • Use some thicker wire for the 5V and ground wires.
  • Make sure wherever you are putting your chip won’t cause any issues when putting the system back together, PS2 slims fit together very tightly.

Hello!

I’m 90 percent done with modding a GH-40-02 with a modbo 5.0 when I realized the only diagram with it has the modbo 4.0! Should I use a different diagram, or do I need a 4.0?

Many thanks, love your website, your resources are incredibly useful.

To be more specific, the diagram includes an F point, which I’m missing.

I have a question: You can solder on a PS2 7500x GH-040-12 pin Y at the point of version 7600x HG-040-12. In the original matrixes it has to be welded at that point and it seems easier to me. Does it serve as an alternative point? My PS2 has that alternate Y point and since the original matrix is soldered there I’m not sure what to do. I think it would be the same. I have a slimline PS2 SCPH 75004 with board GH-040-12 And one more doubt: to solder pins H, G, I, B, A, do you have to… Read more »
