    Are the silver power ribbons on fat PS2s interchangeable?

    I think I destroyed mine trying to reinsert it.

    Would it be possible to just swap the top with any other lid from a unit of the same region?

    Thanks.
    I want the one I can't have and it's driving me mad

    The power and reset are harnessed by that shotty silver ribbon on the bottom half of the console. I only know this because way back in the day I modded a fat Ps2 to swap the top with a custom top loader. You can get a new ribbon and slide it back into place with some tweezers and you should be fine.
    Hit detection. it's all about hit detection.
