The LED meters are custom made chips, manufactured for Amek and unfortunately out of production since app. two decades. They are hard to find. Colin of audiomaintenance.con did sell a replacement assembly for some time but IIRC these are out of stock. Send him a mail if he will get them back in stock.
You should open your meterbridge and recap the voltage regulator which sits in there, btw.

Hi

Do you have any information on the recapping of this as I may get it done whilst I recap the rest of it?
