    Can you pin it down to something like moving it on the hinge? If so it might be the cable between the motherboard and display, it bends near the hinge and can crack a wire over time. When the screen is dark try shining a flashlight on the display at an angle, if you can still see your stuff then it's the backlight for the display, that can be the LED array or the power inverter that drives the LED brightness.

    Do you see a TV screen if it's plugged into the HDMI port? Jack E/NJ
