Not sure if it is a hinge problem or a screen problem however, I wondered if replacing this might work: https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/MacBoo...Early+2009+Display+Asse mbly+Replacement/837 I've read in 2011-2013 Apple replaced some screens/hinges for people who have had the issue. My issue started in early 2014. Went to the Apple Store and they said it was a vintage product & they don't even carry the parts any longer. I even went to 2 local, authorized repair facilities & they suggested buying a new MBP as they didn't have the replacement available either. Funny, I found replacements relatively quickly online and would have to just replace it myself. Any advice would be helpful except the binder clip option as I want to sell the MBP within the next week. I'm okay with replacing the display assembly if that will fix the issue. Thanks much.
