Interior lights not turning on

My interior analog gauge lights are not turning on when I put the headlights on. This includes the tachometer, speedometer, the temp and gas gauge. The digital gauges underneath do get dimmer though. Headlights are working fine and all the lights in the center console work fine.

Is it just a bulb that gave out? Ignition problem? How do I even take out the gauges to replace a bulb?

Wiring? The only change I made recently was changing my stereo head unit.
