Hello , my name is***** can help you with this problem . This 8 blinks blue code indicates a main IC communication problem so in this case the first thing to try is to reboot it . Unplug the TV's power cord and hold the power button directly on the tv ,keep holding it for 20 secs or so then let the tv sit unplugged for a couple of minutes before you try it again.Although i do not expect much out of this procedure , it has to be done to confirm that this problem can be cleared or not with a reset.If that does not do it then we may be looking at an input board problem , this is a known problem and there is even a video on repairing the at the link below ;https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZNAv0m5f7MThe easy way to do this though if you are to look into repairing this yourself would be to replace that AWW1352 board .You can get it at the link below;http://parts.pioneerelectronics.com/part.asp?productNum=AWW1352 You can also use that part number if you`d like to do your own shopping but right now it looks like just about everyone is out of stock on that board.Let me know and i will help you along if you wish to look into repairing this yourself .If that is not your cup of tea so to speak then to have this repaired at home could cost you around $250 to $300 parts included and perhaps $50 less if you take it to the shop yourself .If you go for the repair shop option then look at the links below and enter your zip code ;www.tvrepairpros.comOr this one;http://www.tvrepairman.comThis will give you a list of repair shops in your area.You could give a call to different shops in your area to get an idea of their rates , it pays to shop around.If that answers your question please do not forget to rate or you can use the reply button before or after rating if you have other questions or need help , thank you
