There are only so many things that could be causing this. The most likely issue is something to do with the dimmer switch (it's going bad, dirty contacts or similar). There is also a main electrical feed right behind the dash which might be coming loose, has a wire pinched, bad ground or similar, but if it was this you should be showing other instrument issues. A previous owner of the car might have also rewired something, so don't rule that out, especially since it's been like this since you've bought the car. Would need more information to diagnose further.
