Icon8 Instument Cluster Gauges Failure

I have a 2004 Ford Ranger. Last week all of the gauges (Speedometer, Tachometer, Fuel, and Engine Temp) just quit working. Even the odometer does not come on anymore. However, the lighting on it still works, and the all the icons (i.e. low fuel light, engine light, brake light, etc..) Still work on it. I brought it to a body shop and they ran some diagnostics on it, and they said the whole cluster needs to be replaced. I'm not sure whether or not to believe this, since half of it seems to still work. He said the board was bad, but that shouldnt directly affect the guages, should it? Especially since the electronics on it still work? Thanks so much for your help..
