I had the same problem, then I replaced the DC jack and it worked for a few days. It turns out that these HP models have a very high failure rate of the motherboard something to the like of 85%, and it sounds very much like what has happened to yours.
However, the root cause of that problem is the motherboard capacitors. There is a chance that being able to replace just those components *may* solve the problem and it won't cost much to find out.

The capacitors in question are the black square shaped ones that are protecting vital components on the motherboard...when they fail then there's no protection. They are soldered onto the board directly beneath where the end of the copper tubing extends to in the cooling fan heat-sink just beyond the CPU. There will be about three of them mounted next each other, one or all them may have the appearance of starting to melt. De-soldering these could possibly solve the motherboard problem and it wouldn't cost much to find out. But if you sent it away to have it professionally repaired, they will likely just want to replace the entire motherboard and it would cost about as much to do that as it would to just buy a new computer.

Leapfrog ipad ultra black screen white dot

During a normal shut down, the screen image on a LeapPad will reduce to a white dot, which will disappear in five to ten seconds.
In rare circumstances, the white dot will not disappear and the LeapPad will not fully power down. If the LeapPad does not complete the shutdown process and the white dot remains on the screen for more than ten seconds, complete the shut down by pressing and holding the power button on the LeapPad for ten seconds. This will fully power the LeapPad down, and it will start up normally next time you power it on. For more information contact essay writing service reviews

Turn the tv on picture come on all red and fuzzy and then couple seconds later tv turns off and then turns back on with no picture just red screen then turns off and wont turn back on for ten min

It indicates a short at the Red picture tube--set has three picture tubes and each has a socket which processes signal to each tube--each has a single IC chip---in your case either the chip on the red board or the red tube.

If a bright red screen the set will detect something is pulling way too much current and shut the set down for protection---called a shutdown circuit.......

Darkened screen as you describe indicates a failing inverter. You can test this easily by plugging the laptop into an external monitor, if this works ok, then the inverter needs replaced, If it does not work, the problem is with the graphics chip / motherboard
