    Today i was working on my 12" Retina Macbook, and out of nowhere the screen was filled with multiple horizontal lines of different colors, as if a shortcut or lose cable. If i closed the screen and opened it again, it was fixed, but then after a couple seconds, the same. It was like this for a few minutes. I restarted the macbook and it didnt fixed it. then i turned it off, and back on and it seems to be ok now for the last 15 minutes.

    Anyone with this problem?

    Could be a logic board or retina display fault. The fact that when you close it and open it, and the problem disappears indicates that it probably isn't a loose connection.

    To single out whether it's the logic board or the monitor, do you have a USB-C AV/VGA adapter? Connect your macBook to an external screen and see if it still happens. If it does, then it's most likely the logic board, if not, then it could be your retina display.
