The  intermittent character of the problem suggests bad contacts in the 
bayonet  bases. Replacing the incandescent bulbs with LEDs would not fix 
this,  although the lower heat produced by by LEDs versus the 
incandescents could  change it, maybe making it last longer between 
failures. I suggest DeOxit  on the contacts. You can buff the center 
contact on the bulbs  too.

You  might be able to swipe some fresh solder on the button on the  base and 
this would make it a little tighter, and give it fresh contact  points..
