It's a very common problem with Toyota.
There is also a $30 service that will re-wire the clock for you.
But since you posted in a.h.r, you should be able to solder the circuit
board yourself and you get four solid genuine silver springs for free out
of the deal!
Read the DIY:
The experts at sci.electronics.repair do. How about ToyotaNation.com?
I'd check solder joints and electrolytic capacitors. Clocks have one
voltage regulator for the logic, and it could be a 5V linear one or a
switching regulator. The display uses either high voltage DC for
fluorescent displays, a low voltage (roughly 15V) AC source for LCDs.
Any switching regulator can have electrolytic capacitors wear out.
Replace them with Japanese ones from Mouser.com, BDent.com, or

I fixed the $250 Toyota digital clock, for free!
The problem was the power connection is flaky.
I removed four silver springs.
I then pulled the pins off the harness connector.
I soldered those pins onto the Toyota digital clock circuit board.
When I put it all back together, the clock magically works now.
Here's the DIY I followed.
