instrument cluster woes

absolutely none of the gauges work in the instrument cluster, however the lights still work. checked the fuses and took the dash out and checked the pins on the connecters and they all have power going to them in various amounts. not really sure what to do at this point, thinking it might be an internal problem with gauges, thoughts?

just to give an update, i pulled the cluster out of the dash and seperated the two pieces, only reason i did this was because it looked like someone had messed with it before, after i did this i realized that the section of mother board (soft plastic thing) wasnt connected to the circuit board on the other part of the cluster, so plugged that in everything works now except the fuel, oil and coolant temp, and battery are all pegged to max now so who knows whats up that....

Check the cluster itself. There is also a connection on that. It is between the back plane and a circuit board on the top or bottom I can't remember which. Mine was causing my fuel gauge to give me screwy readings because it wasn't fully seated.
