Default Led guage problem

I ordered a set of replacement leds for my friend 95 civic after installation it didn't work. The secondary lights work (signals ect) but the speedo/tach lights wont work. We then proceeded to put the original bulbs back in which also ended up not working I bench tested the leds they all work and so do the factory bulbs and i have power at board where they mount but they don't light up can anyone help????

All plugs plugged into that back of the cluster? Make sure their pushed in, sometimes you may think their in when they are not.

Is your dimmer switch plugged in? Do the radio and climate control lights work?

I no u said even with the original bulbs it doesn't turn on but did u check the polarity on the leds and also did u try more than one bulb? They can look good but be bad aswell

I tested about 4-6 bulbs, dimmer was plugged in and i tired adjusting it still nothing. As far as it making contact i bent the tabs thinking it was making contact with the board but it was evident it was since it began to smeer the copper on the board. If we have time after work we'll def go through all the suggested steps again just to make sure
