Question Dash backlight not working

Hi everyone, this is my first post here

I have problem with backlight of the dashboard as the same as this guy in this video:

There are only a few areas where light is working, just like in the video.

I checked fuses and they're all fine...
I tried to spin dimmer back and forward many times, pushing, pulling, everything

Does someone had similar problem and maybe knows the solution?

Snap. Ive the same problem now. Did anyone figure out how to fix this?

i was away for 2 weeks. On return I noticed the clock had stopped but once I restarted the car it reset itself. Possibly related as it was then that I I noticed the dash no longer illuminated
