can you swap ps2 parts?
  • I have a v7 (SCPH-39001) ps2 and i broke the connectors that hold the joypad ribbon cable in place. I want to go on ebay and buy a broken ps2 with disk read errors and put my v7 laser into the one off of ebay. Does it matter what ps2 version i get? I already know i can not use a slim ps2.
  • Certain parts should be somewhat universal between models while others will be slightly different due to the change in form factor. To be on the safe side i would look for the same model as the one you have- i think they did make some changes to the drive when going to the slim model.
