The problem you have is with a regulator on the AV input board it goes bad causing this 8 blue blink code, the options are to replace this regulator you will need good soldering tools OR replace the AV board (assuming there is one available)I am sorry this is not something easier, its quite a complex issue, its a well known issue with these flagship plasmas, a tech could fix it for youcost will be around $200 assuming you could get the set into a workshop, www.tvrepairpros.com will locate a tech in your area.

Sorry for frustrating news here
