Are you sure the board you received is good?...you should have bought the board from shopjimmy, then they would have worked with your fixing your set.

This sounds like a control board (i.e. capacitors dead or bulging/dying) or a ribbon cable problem. A service technician should look at this, however if you're handy you can open the back of your tv and look for loose or bulging/leaking/dead capacitors. Capacitors can usually be de-soldered from the control board and replaced with a similiar cap, but unsure about the ribbon cable. You might try to remove and re-seat the cable if when you press on it the line goes away.

Sounds like The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.
It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

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)

If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchase a suitable one.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability.
Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. For more details about the set-up codes, visit the site http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/ Check this site too. http://remotesearch.blogspot.com/ Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops.
Type in the brand name of your device, in the search box [at the top right] of the display window, and press enter to get all related posts. It will make surf easy.

You can try to go back to factory settings.
After that disconnect the power from the TV and wait for about an or two hours. Then put on the power and try to make the installation complete from the start.

When 1 HDMI port is broken most of the time all the ports are defect. This is because all the 3 HDMI ports are connected to 1 multiplexer IC. Only when the connector or the copper connection on the board is damaged the other two ports still be functional.

You still can use the other connections ( not HDMI) the should be working.
