Thanks, that's very neat how you got the photo
. I see that its customized. But it doesnt matter, 'cause I figured out how glass segmented LCD with zebra strip works, and how to fix faded or damaged ones.
Actually in my case both front and rear polarizing film got damaged. So all I had to do is scrape it off and order LCD screen
on ebay. After googling how Glass LCD segmented displays work, I played around with the strips of polarizing paper until I got the segments to show. In essence there are two sheets
of polarizing paper, front one should be vertically polarized and rear one should be horizontally. This LCD is translucent, meaning the back screen
is transparent and reflective. So that means back-light LEDs can light up the segments from the back, and LCD can also utilize ambient light to pass it through LCD and illuminate segments. In taking this thing apart, I screwed up by damaging the rear translucent screen. So I just replaced it with polarizing (transparent) screen. So I get my segments correctly displayed by utilizing backlight LEDs but because I lost
the reflective nature of the back screen I cannot utilize the ambient light to illuminate the segments. No biggie as I plan to use it in the cabin
. But now that I have it working again, I might look for translucent screen material. Definitely a good spare to have for any on board LCDs that fade out.
