My problem was the clock was dim (just about unreadable during the daytime) or not displaying anything most of the time, sometimes it would briefly work OK.
If it just went out, then I think it would be a fuse. My clock did not have a bulb, just the LCD.
When googling dim Toyota clock I find a company in the US who refurbishes Toyota clocks.
I guessed the problem was dry soldered joints, so I touched each with a hot soldering iron.
Clock is now like new.
There were four small springs that make contact between the board & plug pins. Be careful not to drop them after unscrewing the board.
