    A couple of years ago I picked up a cheap PSone and the official Sony LCD screen then this year I decided to install a cheap modchip. Unfortunately at the same time, I also bought a new HDTV and it really makes some PS games not that good to look at while playing so I decide to resort to the LCD screen. Unfortunately the screen is PAL and trying to get any NTSC games running on it results in the scrolling effect. Even booting the PSone WITHOUT a disc still causes the scrolling effect. Without forking out more money for a US LCD screen (and yes, I do know PSP can play PSX ISOs and there are PS emulators out there), is it possible to get NTSC games working on a PAL LCD screen?

    It sounds to me like you might be having region problems (NTSC games on a PAL TV/screen). You might require a region free disc. The one I use it called PSXchange, but there's apparently a 'better' one called Breaker pro. Not sure if anyone sells them anymore...

    EDIT: Wait. Do you have an American/NTSC PSOne? If so that would mean what I said above is true. If not I have absolutely no idea what's wrong.

    It's a PAL Psone console. Downloaded Breaker Pro which had an option for NTSC games to be displayed in PAL signal but this meant disk swapping. Not ideal but at least it made my games work on the screen albeit with black borders.
