Why is my PSOne Sony LCD screen letter boxed?
Why is my PSOne Sony LCD screen letter boxed? –
I have a PSOne SCPH-102 PAL system with an official Sony screen SCPH-152, but everything is letter boxed, including the startup logo. I bought this kit 2nd hand, and it works a treat otherwise. Is there something I can do?
Not sure about the startup logo but the games are probably letter boxed because it was easier for the devs to add black bars to the top and bottom of the picture of NTSC games to match the higher resolution of PAL TVs when releasing games in PAL territories.
Try plugging the PSOne into your TV set and the letter boxing should still be there.
I don't have a TV set or anything else to try it with. I figured there must be something wrong as the startup logo is also affected. I've seen others that display everything in fullscreen and yet they have the same hardware I have.
The games I'd understand, but not the Sony startup logo.
I just picked up another PAL PSOne and LCD for a decent price My other one is still in bits from messing around with it a while ago so I couldn't see what you were saying. I can now see what you mean and I'm surprised that I never noticed it before.
The letter boxing seems too excessive to be explained just by lazy NTSC to PAL conversion alone. I plugged it into to my TV and compared it to the PSOne LCD and there is a clear difference. The PAL PSOne LCD indeed seems to have the wrong aspect ratio unfortunately
Hello! I was wondering if you still have that pal screen? If you do i will trade you for a fully working ntsc screen! Please get back to me as I really need one.
