You may get by with just a video head cleaning based on your symptoms. I do camcorder clean and service for just $40, but I'm in California. 916-362-8708. I do repair pal units like yours as well as the standard ntsc format as we use here in the usa. Larry Stiles, Larry's Electronics.

Touchpad does not work while laptop is charging

Voltage can mess with digitizer of any touch screen. Most like the aftermarket power cord is drawing slightly too much power or slightly too less. My guess is slightly too much and when you are setting it on your lap, you are grounding that extra current. Find an original power cord and see if problem persists.

Blue Streak at bottom on LCD TV screen

Most likely being your television being on something too long and now it's burnt in, you can leave a non-moving object on your T.V. too long, the channel icons are okay because of the commercials. There's really nothing you can do now.

Picture comes on then fades to blue

Check the info from this website to see if you are able to fix your TV. You should turn the blue screen control down slightly counterclockwise. If that did not work, then more likely you have a video amplifier IC defective or a blue CRT.
