    I would take a picture of it to describe it, but it happens randomly and can last only a matter of seconds at a time. My MacBook just recently started to flicker and I don't know what to do! Should I send it in to apple or can I fix this problem myself somehow. Any help would be appreciated

    Could be the inverter starting to go out although that's pretty rare on a newer machine like that. What is your warranty status?

    I have apple care for about another 2 years, I got it back in March 2007.

    I had this problem with a 1st gen macbook last year. I took it in and the first time they replaced the inverter. It happened again a few weeks later and they ended up replacing the logic board. Works fine now. I'd take it or send it in.
