8V of a 7808 may be low/marginal for the 8.5V min specified in the LB1620 datasheet (at least in the Sanyo one I'm looking at).

You could add a diode or two in series with the GND leg of the 7808 to raise the voltage to around 8.6V (1 diode) or 9.2V (2 diodes).
(cathode to GND, ordinary 1N400x for example).
