Question about Philips 50PF7220A Television
Yes, you will gonna have to replace the defective capacitors. No special skills required, all you need to do is to remove them, find identical replacements and solder them back in.
Why did they failed so fast? The usual cause is overheating - make sure the tv's have plenty of free space around them. Also make sure the power coming to that tv is clean - parasites coming thru the wall socket can easily damage the power souce of a tv. If you live near a place where heavy machinery running on electricity is used an line protector is mandatory.
The second cause of failure is that you bought a dud - a cheap product that was build cheaply, with low quality components. Since this is a BB device(which they have refused to support) i personally lean toward that as being the cause.

I have a Philips Plasma TV that is having a problem when turning the power on. A blinking red comes and after un-pluging and re-pluging a number of times it finally works. Does anyone know a trustworthy repairperson in Toronto, Canada?

I'd like to help you with your Philips Plasma TV situation.
I am not the guy to walk you through servicing your TV, but I am the guy who can source you the Service Manual for your unit & the relevant SDI PDP Repair Manual. (Just click free when you follow those links; they are too big to be hosted here at FixYa.)
Please follow the safety precautions!
And don't give up harassing who you bought it from - if it has a warranty contract on it, they don't get the right to choose whether to honor it or not.
I hope that helps.
