So, after painstakingly defeating the vampire boss of Ys 1, the game led me to the Darn tower, where I encountered a room with four chests. When I open any of them, the game halts with what I think is a partially rendered notification of the item found inside. I can hear high pitched beeps and the machine becomes completely unresponsive.

This problem occurs both on my Philips VG-8235 and OpenMSX (emulating the same machine).

Does anyone else have this problem? Is there a workaround or solution?

Try loading your game in the untranslated version. Your save data shouldn't change, so you should be able to get past it if its an issue with the translation.

Same thing happened to me with the patched Oasis version on an emulator many years ago. I agree shram86’s solution is probably the way to go.
