Default Can anyone help me find this transistor?

Hi electronic experts!

I need help findind this transistor for a Sony STR-AV920 stereo receiver. Lots of people told its not worth repairing but i still insist of repairing to gain more knowledge on electronics.


The model is C3856 03Y I beleive the brand is Sankin?
I even included a picture of the device. I may need all four replaced?? what do you buys think? because one of them looked pretty badly burned and there is a couple of small resistors that are burned beyond recognition. If anyone has a sony receiver like this can anyone send me a picture of the inside to indetify the resistors??? Thanks inadvance!

I have always gotten real Sankens from B&D Enterprises. They show it in stock for $2.65.

www.bdent.com

And as PLB points out, MCM also sells them. it has also been my experience that I get real parts from MCM. MCM is asking $3.53 today.
