One of the revisions of the slim PlayStation 2 was the V15. They were found in SCPH-7700x models available worldwide. Matching console model numbers and board numbers are listed below.
I sell Modbo 5.0 modchips in my store.
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-77000 (GH-052-12)
- NTSC-U/C (USA)
- SCPH-77001 CB (GH-051-02, GH-051-51)
- SCPH-77002 (GH-051-02)
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.

Here are some tips I have for you when you are soldering your chip into a V15.
- 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.
This section has photos of some successful installations which you can use to get a better understanding of how everything is wired and positioned. Leave a comment and I'll add your installation to the list

This board matches the second diagram with the Modbo 750 chip. I found some alternative points for some of the connections (like Q, T, U, V, and R).
This is an example of an installation into the first diagram with the Modbo 4.0 chip. It shows that there are multiple valid places you can position the chip and have a working install. I tend to prefer the position in the other example.
