@henny17 this from Panasonic regarding the 8 blink code

Symptom: Unit is dead with 8 blinks power LED.

Cause: Defective SS board, part number TXNSS1SDUU.


1. Identify three components on the board: Q16051, D16041 and R16051. Refer to Fig.1

2. Remove above parts from the board. Clean the heat sink and apply fresh compound.

3. Replace with new parts as follows:

• Q16051: DG3D3020CVLW

• D16041: B0FBCN000005

• R16051: D0GF5R6JA047

Inspect all grounding paths around mounting holes on the board and on the PDP panel area and carefully clean noticed arcing marks (Fig.2 and Fig.3) using sand paper with 400~1000 grit.

Double check your board to see if it shows the same components on the SS board. If so you could probably repair it the same way. If not, replacing the SS board should work. Of course, if you are not up to soldering those pieces, you can always replace the board.
