If you are good at delicate work, you may be able to fix it yourself. I haven’t personally looked inside the cluster, but the fault is typical of faulty elastomeric strips that connect the LCD display to the circuit board. Sometimes you can remove the elastomeric strips and reverse them and they’ll work. The trick is not to touch any of the contacts on the strips, lcd or pcb with your fingers (to prevent contamination). Or, you might be able to find new ones of the right size - https://www.ebay.com.au/sch/i.html?...c4be2bf1680aad7320095bafff86c9c&ul_noapp=true
