12" Powerbook Screen Issues

Any idea of what the heck this is? Or how it could be fixed?

The unit is for sale locally, and I'm curious to know if fixing it could be as simple as a part replacement, or a wipe, or if it's a dying logic board.

Looks like a bad video cable connection or the logic board...

See if you are able to connect the PB to an external monitor. If the external monitor does it as well, it's probably a bad logic board. If it works fine, there's probably something wrong with the LCD panel or cabling.
