The other day I noticed a smudge and haze behind the crystal. So I take it apart to clean it with a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol, but what happened next really surprised me. The excess alcohol got between the two crystals that sandwich the solar panel.
I purchased it used from the bay, and not sure how the moister got in their. Maybe the seal between the crystal and case or the gasket which was pinched when I removed the case back. I don't know, but it sucks.
My wife used her hair dryer to remove the excess alcohol, but it's still hazy and doesn't solve the problem of how it got like that in the first place.
I have a few questions if anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated.
- How could this have happened in the first place?
- I went to pac parts, but don't know what to order if I decide to fix it. Case center or glass? There are no pictures for these parts.
Here are some pics, sorry it was hard to photograph.
