I have a 30" philips widescreen Tv. It started making a high squeeling sound occasionally and the picture gets wiggly. Now it is doing it all the time. The tv is 18 months old and no longer under warranty.

From what I'm seeing online, the bulbs in the Ambilight may be the culprit. I also read that a firmware upgrade could fix the issue too. There was also a recall of some TV's with that issue, so I would check with Philips about your model and serial number and see if your TV was included in the recall. If you raise enough cain and threaten to never buy from them again, they may get your set fixed for you... even if the warranty is up!
if you are getting sound but no picture that good at least the set is not
going into protection mode. Which can make fault finding more
What you should check is that the 12 volt supply from the power supply
to the signal board is present.
other then that check that you have the high voltages present if this is not
the case then you most probably have an issue with the x control board
or scavio as its known.
Generally these type of problem occurs due to atmosphere contains moisture content. Even if it happens in warm area i suspect fbt leakage. Since this is high voltage transformer it can be serviced by qualified technicians only. Red light flashes indicates the tv in protection mode to avoid severe damage due to some short circuit. I think it is helpful to you
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.
