Re: PS2 - Has it been chipped?
Are you asking how do i tell if it's got a mod chip? open it up and laying on top should be the chip. http://www.easybuy2000.com/store/playstation%20II/dms3.shtml go down to installation and you can see where it's installed. it also depends on what chip you had put in.

well a slim ps2 may not be able to be modded as well as a phat ps2 which can take a hardrive which allows you to store files like ps2 games to play on a softmodded or hardmodded ps2!
Softmods:A softmod consists of modding a device but only its software[data, drivers] and thus its "soft"ware is changed allowing you to play ps2 game files or burned dvd ps2 games. One draw back is the slim ps2s could be softmodded, but you cant install a hardrive so its much harder to mod and almost pointless. You can play burned ps2 games but then a Hardmod is needed to help get past security chips!
You can use a method of putting tape and objects in the way of sensors in the ps2 so the ps2 slim will think the dvd tray is closed when its not and you perform a disc swap. look up ps2 disc swap techniqes.
With a phat ps2 you can simply put the modded files on the hardrive and then install them threw the ps2! look online for websites who can teach you how to get and do this stuff.
HardMod: A Hardmod consists of actually adding a physical chip to the device! this is by far the most task worthy. to be frank i cant install a chip on any device and even with the charts. but people are out there who will actually be able to install a mod chip on your ps2. you can find chips but you need someone to install it. i say find someone on the internet or ads who has the chips and the talent to install it.. costs about 150.00 less or more!
The chip is nt pirated. The thing is it is a small chip that has to be installed with the main chip on motherboard where code has been installed. After installing chip, main chip can't recognize original code, thus copied PS2 media works on MOD Chip.The chip comes with many little wires. You can't install that. Go to a expert. It will take an hour to install. Feel free to ask any problem related PS2.
You have to disable the region lock by installing a so called "mod chip". This is a microprocessor (PIC Micro) that is wired inside the PS" or othe game consoles. There should be stores in your place that offer this service.
Here is are sample of mode chips:
You can also google for sites that give instructions on how to install the chip and where to buy it.
