Normally, this happens when the TV detects a bad circuit board and goes into " Protection Mode ". The blinking red light should be a error trouble code. I don't have the Service Manual on hand for your model number to tell you what the code means.
Most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. It's possible that it maybe a bad capacitor or transformer on the power supply board. But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet. I can only make guesses with the symptoms.
You have a few choices:
1. You can try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 - 45 minutes so the TV can discharge and reset itself.
2. If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
3. If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual over the internet; It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you red light blinking codes, circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists.Usually, cost under $20. And most cases the new part cost less than $15.
4. Pay a TV shop to do the repairs. It maybe costly, but get an estimate of how much they will charge. That way you can decide if it worth repairing or replacing the whole TV.
I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

you have to first plug in the s-video before you use hdmi so you can set it to HDMI on your ps3 when you go to your setting. Then it should work. If you already did that and it still doesnt work its probably the HDMI cord

Not sure if yours is the same but Philips codes work with Skyworth and if you hit the TV/AV button on the side of the TV and the table of options should come up. And then with the channel +or- go up and down till you are on HDM1 or where ever you want and then touch the TV/AV again when you are there.

This is quite tricky as it was working until last night and suddenly stopped receiving signals. What can happen wrong?
Do you have any other Player or other HDMI cables to try out. Sometimes the cables would be damaged or PC may fail to detect the HDMI.
Try this out from Philips helpdesk where there is new SW and FAQs are available.
Let me know if you are not able to upgrade the FW (if you do not get the support on ugprading)
