Question about Emerson MW8168B Microwave Oven
What is the dimensions of the emerson mw8778w 0.7 cf microwave?
SOURCE: Panasonic Dimension 4 Turbo Bake
Your Magnatron is most likely to have failed, its an expensive part and on a turbo 4 could be 2M236-M42. Unfortunatly this appears to fail due to reduced air flow. So if you do replace it I would clean the rear grills completely to increase the airflow within the oven.

I also bombed out on locating a downloadable manual but the hardcopy is available on eBay here:
The efficiency of microwave oven is ~ 65% so if you will check the back of your unit for the AC line (input power) consumed, you can easily calculate the usable 'cooking' power available.
i.e. If the label states: 115 VAC 10 Amp(eres), this would amount to 10 X 115 = 1150 X .65 = ~ 740 watts delivered to the food.
The magnetrons do age (if not fail first) and their emissions fall with progressive use so a 10 year-old oven won't still give you that ~65% but substantially less.

Try resetting it--aka, unplug for about an hour, then plug back in and try again. If that doesn't work, make sure you try a different outlet, and if all else fails, contact Panasonic. They should be able to help you out with a repair/replacement (and if you're still under warranty, usually it'll be free!).
Their phone number (acccording to their website, www.panasonic.com ) is 1-800-211-PANA (7262)
Good luck! :)
