    Every time I moved my MacBook Lid my screen turns off and starts to flicker? Is there anyway you think i will get covered I haven't got any warranty left in it either.

    have you or any of your friends opened it up recently? It sounds like the LVDS cable has been pinched

    Sounds like the inverter cable is bad. When the screen goes black, shine a flashlight at the screen and see if you can still see the screen faintly. If you can still see the screen, albeit dimly, replace the inverter cable. Wouldn't be a bad idea to replace the inverter and cable at the same time.

    This may surprise people but 90% of the time it's not the cable.

    I always wish it is since it's so much cheaper. But it's not.

    (I'm lying, since the cable is 10x more of a bitch to replace)

    But really, don't bank on it being the cable.
