Browsing this sub forum the other night, I decided to see if I had a spare battery for my G-Shock DW-004 Japan version that I bought in Hawaii in ~1999. I proceeded to open up the G case back probably for its first time ever, and noted that the o-ring gasket was out of its groove, and likely was never in place correctly. Not good. Popped in the new battery and...dead lcd pixels. All functions seems to work properly but it looks like some of the elements are nonfunctional. I've spent the better part of the last few hours browsing this sub and other Casio fan sites and it looks like there's not much that I can do except purchase a new 1826 module. I live close-ish to the west coast Casio authorized service location and was wondering if they're going to be able to offer a fix. These models are not worth much on eBay so I can grab one used and swap modules for about $30.00 if that's my only option.
