    Confused Is it normal for LCD numbers to fade after awhile on a G-Shock?

    Well, after I got my GW5600J, I noticed that my MTG-939DA LCD numbers are really faded compared to it.

    I did have it on power reserve for more then a year after I got my Seiko 5, but, I started using it again after my Seiko 5 started to get moisture in it.

    Anyway, is there a reason?

    Could it happen to my GW5600J as well?

    Maybe you over expose it to the sunlight.

    Angle of view is important. There is an ideal viewing angle where it is the darkest. Maybe this gets narrower with time?

    Normal? I don't think so.

    Here's my DW-5000 after about 25 years of use and abuse:



    Display still looks sharp with great contrast.

    Do you have any pics of your faded display?

    Well, I'm going by the angle on my wrist where you turn it to read it.

    It could be your ambient lighting. Try looking at it in different places with different lighting conditions.

    I've not seen fading on any kind of LCD, ever. At least apart from a battery nearing its end-of-life.

    Are they faded, or just not as clear in comparison?
    The GW-5600J uses one of the newest breed of LCD screens, no?
