Question about Panasonic TC-P50U50 50" VIERA U50 Series 1080p Plasma HDTV w/ 2 HDMI
When I turn it on it goes right off with a eight blink stand by light. Can it be fixed and is it worth fixing.

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience.

SOURCE: 4 blinking lights
I fixed it myself!
I bit the bullet and ordered a replacement Power Board for AUS$290 and swapped it out myself.
Only took ten minutes, most of that time was removing and replacing the 101 screws holding the back panel on!
Working fine again now.
I did sit the two boards side by side and noticed the new one had moved some of the micro components from the back of the board to the front plus some other small component changes.
If your handy with a screw driver and have some technical knowhow I recommend having a go at fixing it yourself as it wasn't hard and probably saved $200 in service charges (all this assuming you are out of warranty!)

Panasonic utilizes the blinking light as a form of self-diagnostics, similar to the "check engine" light in your car. If you've ever experienced that, you know that a check engine light could indicate anything from a loose gas cap to a major failure.
Panasonic uses the number of times the light blinks, to aid the technician in trouble-shooting the problem. The blinking light indicates an area of concern and helps the technician to isolate the problem and order the correct parts. This in turn speeds up the repair process, keeps parts cost down, and helps both you and the servicer by allowing the technician to complete a repair in one trip in most cases.
So contact an authorized service center.
