Labeled D53 on PCB board for diode, SOT-89 package with marking "43."

It's part of a pulse-generator section on a DC power supply, it's right by an opto-coupler. This picture looks exactly like it, but I can't find any standard distributors in the U.S. I'm scared to throw something from Amazon.com on the board.

This Amazon link has a picture that looks exactly like the chip.

    \$\begingroup\$ Add a photograph of the PCB and we stand a better chance. D53 is a component reference designator, so isn't going to help unless we have the component list. Do you know who the manufacturer is or anything else? \$\endgroup\$ – Puffafish Sep 2 at 14:30

I searched using D53 diode codes SOT-89. 43 is just for mfg traceability or date code last digits YM or YYWW
