I would recommend replacing the fan, cleaning it doesn't solve the problem...If it does, it's only a temporary fix. Replacement fan is around $30 and easy enough to do yourself...

Your description of the problem points to a power supply in the process of failing.
If it was mine, I would leave the set unplugged overnight, remove the back panel of the set, locate the power supply (likely on a separate board related to the incoming AC cable and will have larger components on it), look for an assembly number (often on a printed label), contact the manufacturer's service company and inquire about replacement or repair cost.
When you plug it back in, note whether it behaves normally at first turn-on. If is does, this tends to support the suspicion of a failing power supply since some of the passive components in it have had a chance to recover before weakening again.
Modern supplies are a good bit more efficient than 'linear' supplies of yore but are far more complex and much more dependent on quality of components.

It's a power supply related problem.
The flashing 8 times is a trouble code. A Service Manual for your TV model will have the info on the codes. It could be a bad capacitor or a transformer on the power supply board.If you have some electronic experience, you can find a Service Manual for your TV over the internet. Cost about under $20.
