Not visible or lines through the display or faded. It comes and goes.
The digital display repair can be done by removing the gauge cluster and the circuit ribbon reset to the circuit board
When it gets cold I can see it but as it gets warm is fades away

The temperature gauge stopped working right after the warrany went out and I had to replace the entire instrument panel.

display goes out in summer and comes back when the outside temperature cools. Can not see the entire display even when it comes back.

I have the same problem. The LED display on the instrument cluster first started fading on hot days. The mechanic at the Audi dealership told me The LED panel is wearing out and that it's not an uncommon problem on older cars. He said it will probably get worse over time and eventually go out completely. His ballpark estimate to replace the LED panel was $1,400-1,500.

The lights fade upward until you can no longer see and display. When the park, drive neutral, reverse line disappears, the car will no longer go in reverse. Have to take it to a dealership because no other place can understand the codes.

lights on cluster are fragmented and not dimming but failing in "lines" or sections of display. So far, not solved.
