Cluster working intermittently

Hey guys,
My car has always had this problem, but it recently started to become more frequent. When I first start my car in the morning the cluster will often not work. The tach,speedo, and all guages will not move. The odometer still lights up though. Usually after about 5 minutes the guages will come to life and operate normally again. Before they do so you can see the tach needle barely jumping as if it is trying to work.

Any ideas on what it can be?

Remove the cluster, check connections at the back.
