I have a Panasonic...

I have a Panasonic TV model TC-P50GT30 that is blinking 8 times. Any idea what might be the cause of this failure?

Technician's Assistant: How old is your TC-P50GT30?

It was manufactures in 2011

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

The TV is not working at all

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue with your TC-P50GT30? What happened right before this?

It happened a couple of months ago when suddenly the screen went black (no video/audio)

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the TV Expert to know before I connect you?

That is it

Hi Jack

Hi

This 8 blinks code points to a defective SS /X-sustain board

Are you going to work on this yourself or would just like to have an idea of the parts and costs involved ?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I am going to work by myself.
Looking at the TV I see one SS board and one SS2 board

Thats the SS part # TXNSS1NWUU (TNPA5331AJ)
