Re: Foggy radio display screen
I've tried a variety of nostrums, none of which were effective. Upon closer inspection i observed that the display suffers from pitting. When I use 99% denatured alcohol, dunk a Q-tip into it, and then keep rubbing back and forth across the dispaly, after 10 or so Q-tips I can sort of make out what the display says.
In a few days the opiety returns. Since I only use the radio for audio I feed into it via a cassette adapter I really do not need to see what the display says. If for some reasin I do need to read the display I spit on it and rub the spit over the display. That allows me to briefely read a rough outline on the display.
Guess the next step would be very fine polishing paper to get a flat surface and then plastic polic to take the scratches out?
