This is a wild guess but based on your description at least one of the wafers of the selector switch may not be making contact anymore. That mode switch is a PITA to replace. I suppose it could be power supply related but that wouldn't explain the lamps. An experienced tech would take at least two hours to replace that switch, if a replacement was available, assuming that's what is wrong.
