there is no direct connection between th complete cluster failure and mirror adjustment.
But to exclude a simple glitch in electronics, it is worth trying to disconnect the battery for few hours.
I suspect that the cluster has failed. If disconnecting the battery does not work, next step is to have the fault codes read out with Xentry diagnostics computer from all of the control units. Some independent MB shops have this tool besides dealers.
If the cluster failure is confirmed, it is possible to get the cluster rebuilt:
