I don't think this is an electrical problem. I think it'* a plastic problem. Someone probably used something to clean it that etched or fogged the plastic.

Cluster removal instructions are in Techinfo. You might want to remove and carefully take it apart and check that cover.

Or get it wet with a damp rag and see if it clears, then refogs when it dries.

Actually the front plastic can be coaxed off w/o fully removing the cluster. Tough to tell if it'* on the front plastic or behind..
