confused Instr. Cluster Left LCD Display Dim -Temp Dependent

My 2005 Escape Hybrid Instrument Cluster has 2 small LCD Displays. The left one which gives information concerning miles to empty, or status of various items gets to be very dim when it is cold out, but when the temperature is warm - the warmer the better, it can be easily read. The dealer says the whole cluster has to be replaced. It sounds like a chip that has developed a temperature sensittivity for electrical output. Is there a cheaper fix?

I had a 2002 Explorer that had a similar problem and it was diodes that needed to be resoldered.
