Radio's working ok, you just can' see what your doing! Makes DSC calls particularly challenging :-)
I have the Icom M423 since April last year. It has started to mist up too. The same was reported in this months Sportsboat & Rib magazine.
I phoned Icom about it and they said that depending on the humidity in the air during manufacture the screen will have some moisture in it. So I assume it is this moisture that condensates which causes the misting. They did offer to have a look if I sent it to them but my screen does clear after 30 mins or so. I have not experienced this with my 10 year old Icom handheld. It is disappointing as the radio performs brilliantly.
Icom did not offer to replace my radio for this issue.
