I'd found that but hadn't read through to the next pages, in one of
the later postings I found "I also had to replace Q5 (?) with marking
"P3A" right above Q3. It is a PNP Transistor (DPLS320A). Mine was blown. "
So it seems that it's a PNP transistor, I can get them from Mouser
(among others) for £0.33 so it's worth a try anyway.
