  I have a service manual and parts list for the 9100, I'll try to help.

 Do you mean the -3500 Volt power supply board (pn 09100-66522)? That's
the board with the large transformer on it and the focus and intensity

is short-circut all ways round.

   HP says "Q1 -- 1854-0322 -- Quantity 1 --- TSTR: NPN, Si --- (Mfr) 86658
--- obd"

  The notes say that "obd" means "order by description". There's a list of
manufacturer's code in the manual but 86658 isn't listed. ??? I think
those are standard codes, you may be able to look it up elsewhere. I don't
see any other usage for that transitor anywhere else in the 9100 but from
the looks of the circuit, I doubt it's critical. There's a good theory of
operation description of this circuit in the manual. Let me know if you
need a copy.
