    Negative. You will need a new display. Send knickerlessparsons a message.

    No water damage to any part of the radio. Screens working 100%.

    This is the only method I would recommend for repairing those LCDs.
    Pardon me, but that is fucking brilliant!

    Iím in the middle of moving and boxing things up. I ran out of time. The radios are still available, and as soon as I am able to offer them for sale, aligned, I will. Everything still good. Sorry for the delay guys, but moving is a whole other level of complication and fuckery.

    So I tried Mars' method on an MT 2000 that had serious display issues. At first I thought it was unsuccessful, but once I let the radio sit for a few hours, I came back and turned it on, and the display was 100%. I guess you have to be patient for the glue to dry before making any assumptions. Can you provide more detailed information on the repair, Mars?

    At this point, I've had 100% success with it, but only trying it on one radio thus far.
