You tried adjusting the brightness on the clocks by the headlight switch ?

edit: looked at picture looks like a duff bulb swap em over and see if that makes a difference, i.e. what lights up then....

If you are sure the bulbs are deff not blown....then i would think it must be a break in a pcb track that supply the 12v and ground to them.
When you take the clocks out again, have a look carefully for damage to the tracks or pcb.....can be easily fixed with a soldering iron.

Hope this helps
