Pilot lamp for Technics SE-A900S Vu meters
I just recived a Technics SE-A900S Power amp in good condition
But some of the pilot lamps for the vu meters are burnt out.
The part number from Panasonic are XAMR131, but now i have discovered that Panasonic has stopped selling these.

Can anyone point me in the direction of a suitable replacement?

Measuring the voltage over each lamp gives about 7-8volts (measured on an identical amp with ok lamps) and the distance betwin the holes on the print are 24mm

Problem solved ?

It's not an exact like for like replacement, but in the past I've fixed other vu meters by embossing a white LEDs in some white sealant above or either side of the plastic case.

The trade off is the light is not so warm as with a lamp, but you'll never have to replace it again.

Various suppliers carry "meter lamps." small glass tubes with axial leads. I keep them onhand in three voltages.

Try a model railroad shop
They have 12 volt leaded bulbs called grain of wheat bulbs. Will work if you need 12v bulb. Might have other voltages too.
