    G-Shock solar powered foggy problem!

    Never done that with a froggy but I have done it with all my squares. They seem to have a residue on the inside from something. Not sure what it is but once cleaned they are clearer to read.

    My squares are solar but Iíve never had moisture. What Iím referring to is residue left during manufacturing.

    All? Did you opened them before?
    I have a G-5600A that has the same problem. Moisture was trapped between the glass and the solar panel. But the middle or display area is clear, so it is just fine with me.
    I dismatled two or three 9200 Riseman before and I know that the glass and solar panel are attached together using a very thin double adhesive tape. Separating them is a little bit tricky. Use some heat to weaken the adhesive. Putting them together requires a very steady hands or else mis-alignment will occur.

    Some I dismantled some I didnít. Most people wouldnít notice what Iím referring to. I only noticed after I disassembled one but it seems to be in all of them. A slight residue that once cleaned makes the display clearer.

    It's so hard to see in that angle.

    My squares Iím referring to are all gw5000 variants where the solar panel can be easily removed. On the regular plastic case models the solar panel is built into the case and canít be removed. They have the same residue but you canít do anything about it since you canít remove the solar panel. The residue is between the solar panel and the glass. Usually both surfaces are coated with it.

    That's the point, in this position you should be able to see the numbers, but you don't because of the fogging! The shadow you see on the glass is the fogging.... really a lot!
