Default Lights in Yamaha gauges

My Yamaha gauges would not light up last night. They are 2016 motors and gauges, did I hit a wrong button or something is there a way to turn them back on ? Thanks.

it would help if you were more specific as to which Yamaha gauges

are they from this page?

or 6Y8s from this page?

They are the 4" square ones. I could not find them on yamahas website. The motors and gauges are 2016. By the way I have 4 gauges and none of the backlights are working. Thanks again.

Ahh Command Link Square. Forgot, no longer on the Yamaha website, sorry.

Here's the Owners Manual

look on Page 10 for the backlight control instructions

I do not.
You might call Yamaha Customer Support in Georgia and see what they say; nice folks.
