Default Sony SL-T50ME dead after power surge

Hello. As the title says, my precious Beta VCR's power supply died after a problem with my area's power grid which caused the mains voltage to flactuate. There is a really bad burn mark on the mains fuse, and I found the two switching transistors completely shorted. After removing the transistors from the board I can no longer measure any shorts in the primary. Luckily I had a spare power supply from a scrap machine and I confirmed the machine is working fine with that installed, but it would still be nice to repair this one. Does anybody know of a reliable source for these transistors, as I see lots of Chinese knock-offs flooding the market lately? They are both 2SC3158.

Regards

Fivos

Please note that these are 2SC3158L with the letter L designating the hFE class which is usually important in those Sony designs. Replacements by Inchange Semiconductor are usually unsuitable. You might be able to use genuine MJE13006 as a substitute, but pay attention to the hFE.
