    Hello I just bought PlayStation 1 with installed modchip. PlayStation is PAL SCPH-5552. I use SCART cable on my PAL TV. When I play burned on CD PAL games there is no problem. But when I play burned NTSC games the picture is black and white only. Is it possible some mod so NTSC games also be in color?

    I have the same model PSX with modchip. My TV was a CRT Sony but it had two SCART sockets one displayed in colour when used while the other displayed in black and white.

    Other than that, my suggestions are:

    TV is too old
    Buy a different SCART cable

    You need to convert your NTSC signal into a PAL one, there's boot disks out there that does that but keep in mind that not every game will work with a boot disk

    Or you just need a TV that can handle the ntsc signal. So basically any tv that can handle 60mhz

    You cant used the "original " scart cable. You need to get a "RGB" scart cable. Check on ebay or similar places. This will make your tv show color on NTSC games.

    Have fun!

    Hi,

    From what i could tell, yes. The easiest way is to see if the "scart" cable have all "pins" on scart. The normal RCA scarts only have a few pins. But some models have all "pins" but not all connected.

    I would say that price of the above item is "ok" but i guess you could find it cheeper if you look arround.

    Sorry to answer so late. I received the RGB SCART cable a week ago and it solved my problems. Thanks to all who helped.
