I have just got a PS2 for my kids (first game console). I have Abe's Odyssey game from PS1 days. It runs in PS2 but the screen rolls down (like credits), so it's totally unusable. I am using HDMI convertor, does anyone know if this means my PS2 can't play this game or is there something I can do to fix the problem? The screen just rolls downwards and loops around continually. Any help appreciated. Thanks
 
That's an interesting first choice of console for kids in 2019. As to the issue sounds like it's an NTSC/PAL problem, is the game the same region as the PS2 (both PAL for that era).

I'm not sure it's something you can fix without a modded PS2 for adjusting PAL/NTSC output, perhaps there is another method as it has been a very long time ago since I lasted messed around with the PS2. A quick Google search shows there are now softmods for PS2 so no hardware chip required.
 
It may be due to the HDMI convertor you're using. Try the standard composite cable and see if that works
