I used spirit to remove the sticky surface,fyi
Easy to remove?

Not too difficult, especially after trying other polishing creams.

But disassemble the case is a must for safe and clean result.

Can you include a picture of your clean 765 please. I will try to clean the sticky stuff from the housing with spirit.

I find the regular Toothpaste to be good at removing these sticky plastics. Just rub it on using a cloth and work your way into the "stuff"... then respray. The fine powder in the toothpaste makes the job easier.

Hope this helps.

I think the paste type works better than the gel type.

The best and cheapest way I have found is to use 91% isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol...put a little on a paper towel, cloth, or cotton swab and rub the stick stuff off. I would also suggest putting on rubber gloves to keep the black stuff off your hands. Mine is clean now. Have fun.

I have the same message in my 2565....but I think it came on only once in awhile and not every time you turn the unit on.

I just do a single finger action to acknowledge the message and ignore it till the message comes on again. :mrgreen:

Not going to allow that message to spoil my day. :lol:
I don't have free fish......
