    Default Anyone got a pic of a yellow UK SNES?

    A strange request I know, but i have hunted all day and night to find a picture of a UK PAL SNES which has some very prominent yellowing, but all to no avail.

    So I have come here, to ask the good people of the DP forums to help me in my quest.

    So does anyone have a pic, or could take a pic of thier own SNES for me?

    It has to be YELLOWED and UK PAL.

    Regards
    Simon

    Im actually writing an article on cleaning, and part of it is talking about general yellowing of comptuers and consoles.

    I wanted the picture to illustrate this.

    Yeah there's a cure for it, just make all videogame consoles black like they should be in the first place, and you'll never have to worry about yellowing!

    I honestly don't know what possesses manufacturers to make white or gray videogame consoles. No matter what, they all eventually look like yellow shit.

    a few reasons i guess, but Smokers are the main cause of them i think, in a smoking house hold most consoles turn yellow and stink!

    Wrong , it is the plastic and has nothing to do with Smoke.

    Nintendo started using 2 different plastics on the Snes . And one of them turns yellow after a while no matter WHAT you do.

    It is a breakdown of the plastic and not from Smoke, or Sunlight or Aliens.

    It turns out (after a lot of research) that it is the reaction caused by the effects of Ultra violet light on a part of teh material that the plastic was made from, that make the plastic turn yellow, and as a result is irreversable.

    Does anybody know how long it takes? I have a few SNES carts that are falling victim to this phenomenon, but fortunately my SNES still looks new. I hope that never changes. It sucks that some of my carts are turning, but they're just carts, so it's not really that big a deal. But I want my console to stay looking nice and new, since it draws alot more attention than my carts. My carts are kept in boxes, so they're only seen whenever I'm playing them.
