Macbook 2007 Screen Black Depending on Tilt

Starting today, every time I open my macbook, the screen stays black unless it is nearly closed. Then, by gradually opening the screen to the point where it goes black, and then returning it to a point where it light up again, I can gradually get the screen working at any tilt, but this process takes a good 10-15 minutes.

I've seen similar problems in the macforums but never this exact problem. If anyone can offer any help or suggestions, would you also be able to estimate cost of fixing the problem?

Inverter board and cable? Apple replaced both of mine for ~$40.
