I recently received my new GW700BDJ-2 [BTW it's awesome....the all-steel G-Shocks are definitely serious pieces of work] and decided to put it under my halogen desk lamp to get it starting to charge up [it was flat on receipt, and too late in the day for direct sunlight].
After a few hours I checked it and found that the light had heated the watch waaay up...it was too hot to touch and the LCD was blacked out. I let it cool and the LCD came back to life, but now I see that the display is dim and a little hard to read in normal daylight, unless I turn it just right to reflect the light. All the other functions seem to be fine...the atomic clock radio signal has been absolutely reliable, FWIW.
Is this normal for the reverse LCD displays, or did the heat weaken the display?
As it is, I am thinking of replacing the module with a regular non-reversed LCD...is this feasible to do myself? Can I even order new modules from Casio, or elsewhere?
Any advice would be appreciated...
