Yep. I had to scrap the TV.

Updating the firmware in my case was non-reversible. Not a good idea.

If recommended on their site, do you have a warranty claim?

Assuming correct model and firmware downloaded of course.

Longshot may be to see if the original firmware still available on the web somewhere.

Make model No. of TV?

I suggest you try a factory reset of the TV.

Possibly a stupid suggestion as you probably need the remote to do it :0)

1- Press Home, 2- Select [Setup] > [Installation] > [Factory settings], 3- Press play to enter the [Factory settings] menu [Reset] is highlighted, 4- Press OK to reset to default settings. 5- Press Home to exit.

for 42 in models

Factory reset does not work. It won't remember the original firmware.

Philips suggest you call them in case of upgrade error.

They are open tomorrow, and until 8pm weekdays.
