Default HVAC Control Panel Goes Dark

02 Camry, SE V6

The HVAC control panel just went dark when I have the lights on. Only
the two left knobs (Fan, Temperature) are dark. The AC and Recirc
indicators on those knobs come on normally. The third knob that
controls the air source is lit normally as well.

Is this a fuse issue? If so, which fuse am I looking for?

Thanks in advance....

There are small bulbs on the back of those buttons. They need to be
replaced.

Thanx for the help everyone,

Stephen, you were right, I tapped the bottom padded section and sure
enough, the lights came back on. They intermittently go off, and I tap
them back on.

Thanks again.

Same thing happens on my '96 camry. A quick rap with my knuckles
brings the lights back.

It's a nuisance thing, not critical (like replacing my radiator hoses
is, once I place my order...)
