Re: bitx40 display flashes and audio clicks when powered on.

When PA Pwr is applied the components that will create a short circuit between V+ and GND are:

C153, C154, C157 and Q15.

As Q15 gets hot I would say is toasted. I would try to remove it and apply PA Pwr again. If your receive signal does not change you found the fault.

Good luck,
