I have one of those hand held Tacho's ,

It has grown a creepy black mass over part of the display..   Question ,, I'm fairly handy with dismantling these sort of components,,, could I carefully remove that glass cover and clean this black "spider" web sort of fungus off the surface of whatever it's not supposed to be on ?????  Any clues techs out there ???  Oh, I pulled it out yesterday and even after 15 years in my drawer , she's still working(battery wise)  and not much more screen blackout has happened.
Oh, I just remember , I bought this taco either in Darwin or Cairns ,during work all that time ago.. Could it be the tropical climate that caused the growth on the screen ?????
