Whats wrong with my 2000 Honda Accord odometer?

Just recently got my 2000 Honda Accord. When i was driving home i looked down and saw that the numbers on my odometer are all cut up and you cannot make out what the numbers are. Is this a connection issue, do i need to replace the backlight or is there some kind of problem with the pixels in the display? its not a huge problem but is sort of an inconvenience and there have been some discrepancies on the title they gave me with the miles on the car. I would like to get this fixed to solve that issue and i would like to know how many miles are on the car as well as how many miles i am getting to the gallon seeing as of right now im going off what the internet tells me my car gets.

Thank you for your time and helpful responces

Odds are someone was screwing with the odometer . If you've recently purchased the car its how people with low moral standards make a car with 300000 look like it only has 100000 . Even if you repair the display odds are you wont find the true mileage. If you do want a working odometer go to the wrecking yard and get a used one there easy to install

tylerisbell, push with your fingers on the display see if it cleans it up,and if it again becomes distorted when you remove your fingers. It could be as simple as a loose connection or a cold solder joint on the back of the instrument cluster. I would try and resolder all of the connections. If that fails you may have to consider replacing the cluster. It is not a backlight issues. If it would be, then none of the numbers would be illuminated.
