I had the same problem with mine. It turns out the ECU software as a diagnostic moves the Speedometer from 0 to 140 during reboot. Sometimes it move the needle too far and the needle gets stuck on the plastic behind the needle. I reccomend hitting the dashboard, its worth a try and it worked on mine!

Try disconnecting the battery again, only the + side. Wait for 3-5 min before hooking back up. Turn the switch on but not over, then start the car after a few seconds.

My 2002 Camry speedometer pegged out at 140 after the battery died and was replaced. Giving the dashboard a few hard thumps while the driving the car at about 40 mph (who knows for sure? it wasn't working at the time) re-engaged the dial. Probably saved me about $300!
