Dashboard Blacklight

(2002 Nissan Maxima)
I was driving home today and started to hear a light buzzing sound by my dashboard (like a light bulb was about to go out)--I ignored it though. But when I got back in my car tonight, I turned on my car and headlights on and then saw that my dashboard 'blacklight' was no longer working--the mileage, gear, maintenance, needle, etc lights were working fine, but the actual background (i.e. where the speedometer is located) was not lit up (it usually lights up aqua blue).

I am pretty sure a fuse went out ...but I am wondering about the possibility of the dashboard lights burning out.

If it is the fuse, which ones could be the problem?
If it is the dashboard bulbs, how do I replace them?


UPDATE: When I got the car, it had custom gauge faceplates installed--I looked online today and saw that they are "Alfa Otto Gauge Faces: White Reverse Glow Gauge." This kit apparently does not need bulbs. So the issue could now deal with the wires for the kit (faceplates/switch/dimmer)...has anyone had this issue with this kit?



Thanks so much for your time and possible solution,
