I opened it yesterday, it worked fine and now it's started doing this. I imagine the answer is "it's broken and it needs to be replaced", yeah?

It looks like a loose cable between computer and display. Can you bring it to Apple or an Apple Authorised Repair Centre?

Apple has been replacing these for WiFi issues and now this. That 2012 refurb is looking sweeter each day.

Didn't know Apple has been replacing for the wifi issue. I have the wifi issue @ work but am ok at home.

As above, looks like a loose video ribbon cable.

This is a known problem to many of us CS6 users. As soon as you use a larger brush the screen flickers.
