Question about PSOne and LCD screen

Postby Adam1987 » Sun Sep 24, 2017 6:56 pm

Hi everyone!

This is my first time making a topic here. Obviously i was lurking around for some time, but now i have an important question which i hadn't found a clear answer yet. I hope someone can help me out.

So i read about the PSOne official LCD screen. I only found NTSC LCD screens so i plan to buy one of those, but i heard that the region of the console and the LCD screen must match.
Is that correct?
What if i have PAL chipped console runnin an NTSC game on the NTSC LCD screen? Will it work? Or my theory is wrong?

Thanks to all who answers my question.

It will work but you'll have a rolling picture during the PS1 startup logo unless you have an ONECHIP installed.

With a ONECHIP, the PS1 will switch into PAL60 (NTSC)to avoid the extra PAL disc check and you'll have a working picture. (although I'm not sure if color.)

If its chipped would this be of any help?

Could it boot the PAL game into NTSC for the screen? It would i assume boot on a pal console if it was chipped then you could select the option to boot in NTSC mode for the screen and thus play the PAL game.... Maybe.

EDIT* OK, so i thought it through and i see it maybe like this. You put the above linked disc in your modded psone, turn on and its boots to the option screen ok on your screen because its the ntsc disc. Then you pop in you pal disc and select ntsc to boot the game on your NTSC screen. Makes sense to me but i could be overlooking something.

I have two different systems, PAL and NTSC with both NTSC PSone screens. The boot-up and memory card browser, the picture rolls on the PAL console.
