Dualshock 3 color fading into yellowish

[ Edited ]
8 replies 598 views Edited Nov 1, 2012

I have a ceramic white PS3 and a bunch of controllers to which they are bought in the same date and store. It is stored in the same place when not in use. I also use them interchangably but my problem is one of the controllers is already yellow and the other seems to be yellower every day. But I did not encounter this to my other 2 controllers.

 

I'll just ask if somebody also experience this. And possibly on how to solve this.

Do you at least clean them once in a while?

There's nothing you can do. The color just fades over time.

Looks like what happens in a smoke filled room after time.

I would be really worried if you had a black controller and that was turning yellow.

Thanks for this informative piece! Been wondering this myself!

 

TL;DR

There is no cure due to heat and UV light. If new spray it with UV coating!

Trade the two yellowing controllers in for new ones. You probably won't take much of a loss. I've got 4 DS3 controllers and they are all different colors... Black, red, blue and pink. They are all also skinned.
