    Maybe the safest way is to buy a wrecked standart 5600E and swap the modules.

    Otherwise you can convert the LCD with a polarizer film surgery
    There are some old thready you can search for. :)

    You see no pictures in my post?
    Photobucket decided to lock my pics behind a 40$/month prescription service.
    I used their services since 2009 so the most of my old threads have Photobucket pics inside.
    If you stumble across one of those threads and want to see the pic, PM me and i will re-attach it.
    What can we learn from all the lost information?

    Never been a fan of negative displays. Even if they were more readable I still don't even like the look of them anyway.

    the thing with the MS is its best seen in daylight, or using the light at night. i have both models and must admit it is one of the worst Neg displays, and i have no problem with Negs, i actually like them.... must be a leftie thing~

Yes, it's a real scientific phenomenon that obscure mad scientists only recently discovered.

    First idea about a module swap is a good idea.

    The second idea about polarizer surgery is not a good idea. I have started 3 G-Shock polarizer surgeries and only 2 worked (barely). The third watch was wrecked at my inability to complete the surgery without injuring the watch. Live and learn.

    Module swaps are within my prevue, polarizer surgery is risky and not always successful.

    Re: 5600ms TOO DARK

    MS was my first square and it's the main reason I have bad impression on negative display. I would recommend you to convert to positive by polarizer mod with a new polarizer. If you messed it up you can do module swap later.

    Module swap



    Polarizer mod



    Here is the link to the post when I did polarizer mod, you don't need to disassemble the module like I did. It also contains link to instructions thread for converting DW.

    Tried the conversion to positive for 5600ms. The red tint is in the LCD and not the filter as I thought before I started. Didn't like it so I ended up swapping the module.
