play them for an hour every year or 2 will be more than enough.

1 hour of device use is enough to fully reform the electrolytic capacitors?

it takes very many years to depolarise a standard cap - your being fearmongered by assholes on other forums.

the type of equipment where we need to worry about such stuff is from the 1970's or older

... electrolytic capacitors will ... depoarize ...
Ignoring the missing "l" (adjacent key errors are my frequent typo type), polarized (= normal) electrolytic capacitors don't depolarize. Very long non-use might lead to the aluminum oxide dielectric layer thinning (probably years of non-use, possibly excepting some cap types with water-based electrolytes), decreasing the voltage the part can withstand, but depolarization won't happen. Being polarized is part of the nature of an aluminum oxide layer dielectric.

Electronic devices that use electrolytic capacitors from the early 90's need to be turned on at what frequency of time interval to prevent failures from disuse? i have crt tv, snes, megadrive, ps2 slim, power supply

not are new capacitors are capacitors 90s

Does this information only work on new electrolytic capacitors and not on electrolytic capacitors manufactured in the early 90's and early 2000's and assembled in electronic circuits?

I didn't understand, the manual is from 1985 but the manual was released with the device and that year the electrolytic capacitors of the device were brand new

And in 1986, these electrolytic capacitors were no longer new and it is necessary to do what the instructions recommend.
