    How to customize the backlight on your G-shock DW-6600/6900

    1. First of all , you need a DW-6600/6900,
    2. Search the internet for your favourite logo
    3. Print it on a sheet of clear plastic , the one used for light projectors works best, the dimensions of your logo should be : 21mm wide and 18 mm high
    4. Open your watch and take out the module
    5. Remove the metal things that hold down the LCD
    6. Take out the LCD
    7. Lift the light panel and take it out
    8.Put the light panel under the sheet of plastic with your logo on it and with a marker write the shape of the light so you will know what shape to cut your logo so it will fit perfectly, the loght will have a little thing sticking out of it , that is the contact with the motherboard so DO NOT include that when you make the stensil for your logo just make a straight line .
    9. Cut your logo .
    10. Put the logo in the module
    11. Put the light over it
    12. Put the LCD back in place
    13. Put the metal things back on the LCD and tight them so that the digits appear bak on the display.
    14. Test the light
    15. Put the watch back togheder and enjoy your new one of a kind G-SHOCK

    Here are some photos to help you in this process , some of them are borowed from another thread, I hope nobody minds ! If after this you still have any questions, ask here and I will respond you , and if you do a custom light plase post a picture here so that we all can see it !

    Hello! I was wondering if you can see the image when the watch is not lit up? Thanks!

    Hey DJ,

    I'm assuming you cannot, just like with the official G-Shocks that have backlight logos.

    What brand of transparency do you use and what type of
    Printer?

    Does this also mean that one could remove the large Casio "G" logo that is in the middle of the DW6600C-1V?

    I am looking forward to trying this, however my question is that I am looking to do a DW6900. While some of the photos here do show a 6900, the backlight image shown is on a 6600 - which does the 21mm x 18mm dimension of the image refer to?

    This is an absolutely FANTASTIC tutorial, and has helped me get rid of the awful 'Backlit G' on my (much cherished!) DW6600.

    I didn't bother replacing the opaque-filter when I removed it, and one indirect advantage is that the EL backlight now appears much brighter, as you can see:



    Which is handy for me as I work outdoors often at night, and the watch has doubled-up as an 'emergency flashlight' on more than one occasion!

    THE BEST G-SHOCK MODIFICATION EVER!
