Is this happening on all inputs?
If you bring up the philips menus, are they upside down also?

There are a few possibilities here,

since there were power outages the main board may be corrupted to a point where it cannot be adjusted (physically damaged).
The one thing you can try is accessing the service menu and making a settings adjustment.

Take the remote and quickly key in the sequence 0 6 2 5 9 6 i (i being the info button).

That should put you into the service menu. Be very careful, if you change any of the wrong items you can damage the tv beyond repair. You are looking for the setting called either Flip, Mirror, or Vertical flip (v flip). You'll change that to the opposite of what it is set on now.

Let me know if that helps,

Nathan
