Identification and Background ¶ 

The Sony Playstation 2 Slimline was released in September, 2004, in time for the launch of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Production of the old models (SCPH-3XXXX) stopped as soon as the smaller, thinner, quieter replacement hit the shelves (SCPH-7XXXX). Other than the noticeable size difference, Slimline models can be identified by a built-in ethernet port which previous models did not have.

Repairing the Playstation 2 Slimline is not a difficult task. The majority of disassembly can be done with a screwdriver and the components can be easily identified and swapped out without soldering.
