The downstream numbers look OK although the error counts seem a bit high, but the upstream power level is too high (should be less than 51 dBmV) and only one upstream channel is locked (should be at least 3). Problems like this are often due to poor coax connections or damaged coax cable, usually in or near your home.
If you want to troubleshoot this yourself, please see Internet Troubleshooting Tips.
If you can't find the problem or you'd rather have Comcast take care of it, call them at the phone number on your bill or 1-800-Comcast, or use one of the options on https://www.xfinity.com/support/contact-us/. Insist they send a tech out to identify the cause and correct it.
If the tech finds bad coax, splitters, amplifiers, or connections in your home (even if Comcast originally supplied them) you'll probably have to pay for the visit unless you have their Service Protection Plan (https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/service-protection-plan, closed to customers that don't already have it). If the trouble is due to a faulty Comcast rental device, or anything outside your home, you shouldn't be charged.
I'm going to highly recommend that you replace that retired CM400 with something more reliable and capable of faster data rates. I would consider the Motorola MB7420 or MB7421 which are made by Zoom and are fairly affordable. They MB7420 operates on 16 downstreams and the MB7421 used 24 downstreams for much faster download speed capability.
Tx power 54 and single Tx bonded on an older Docsis 3.0 isn't suprising. The Arris 6182 which is also a 8 downstream modem also exhibited this behavior when it's beginning to fail. High Tx can sometimes be caused by a faulty amp, poor connectors, upstream interference in the street and too many splitters. But in your case, I'm fairly certain it's the CM400's fault.
Also, the CM400 is limited to around 300Mbps with only 8 downstreams so you may be missing out if you subscribe to the newer Comcast service tiers.

Glad you got it, and thanks for letting us know what the problem was!
