RE: Well, piffle, meter lamps are the least of my problems.

All new transistors? Almost sounds like the shop is going to take the scatter shot approach - replace everything and see if it works.

I doubt if the 636 has four playback amps - two for forward and two for reverse. Just offhand, I think this more of a switching problem and could be a $100 repair.

$600 is a lot of money. I'd give 'em $75 to diagnose the problem and replace the bulbs with appropriate bulbs, then decide what to do about the rest, and have the $75 applied to the final bill.
