    Fading display on a G-3010

    Guys n gals,

    An old customer gave me this G because the display was fading, and I am wondering what the cause of this is as I want to keep it for myself now that i have cleaned it up, but it does tend to fade (esp on EL) battery is not drained as such - keeps time and EL works, display just fades on LCD:







    This is on all colour modes...

    Are you sure it's not the battery? On my DW-6600 the light also still works however when changing modes I can see that the digits don't react as quickly as they used to. Takes a long time till the battery really dies (not like on the solar models where it can go from working to dead in no time - has to do with the different characteristics of rechargeable and normal batteries). I'd try changing the battery - if it still doesn't work as it should maybe some contact spray inside the watch? My G-3011 looked very similar when I got it - a battery change solved the problem:

    Sedi, the box where the watch stands is upside down...that brings bad luck to your beloved watch.

    True, and the only way to remove the curse is to buy another G-Shock.

    Those pics were after a fresh battery was put in; strange huh? Contacts are clear - nothing is "not working" on the watch. Stopwatch, beeping, timer, colour change, it's all there... Timekeeping is fine, even when the LCD fades, nothing misses a beat...

    I think it could just be a dying module? The history of it has been that battery lasts only 8-12 months I've been told, but I will test this over the course of the year to see.

    strange - now I'm out of good ideas. But I can't really imagine that the module is dying - should last a bit longer I think. Hasn't "tiger2" done some work on those models? Like completely dissasembling it and stuff. Maybe you should write him a mail. If somebody knows it should be him.
    Here's his thread about the G-3000 (same model just in a different color scheme and limited):
