I have a Philips 30 inch LCD and solved the problem by using the circular arrow button on the TV remote. Pointing it at the TV and clicking "right" (3 o'clock on the button), the picture moved right. Same thing on for "left". Worked for me.

While the tv is on the right input, and the computer is running, try unhooking the cable and hooking it back in. That's the only way I can get my Philips to detect the HDMI signal from my pc. I haven't found a fix for it though.

The TV is on protect mode.
Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.
Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.
If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.
The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.
1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.
2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.
If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.
If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.
Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.
Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.
If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual
If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

what you have is a bad IR sensor board. The part # is:
313926859182. Right now, there are so many of these things failing, that finding the original might be difficult.
Don't fear, though; it's a small part. And, best of all, it's cheap. Expect to pay around $5.00 for the part, maybe a bit more, maybe less, depending on the supplier.
Now, if you are handy with a power drill (fitted with an octagon/star bit for the back of your set), you can remove the 20 or so star-bit screws from the back of your television. Don't worry about putting the set on the floor. If your TV is on a stand, simply turn it around. You'll need to remove the stand screws, but you won't need to take the TV off of the stand.
Now that you've taken the screws out and removed the back cover, look in the lower left hand area of your set. You'll see a 4 inch long circuit board with 2 cables running to it. Pull the cables out (they'll come out easy). Remove the 2 star-bit screws.
One of the board's sides is under a plastic tab. Lift the board out of its slot from the other side.
Put your new board in, reconnect the two cables, reassemble the back and you are set to go.
Expensive repair for a few bucks and a better IR sensor.
