    If you can live with it, do. If not, take it in to an apple store and have them replace the inverter. There's nothing you personally can do to fix the issue.

    Though me personally, I'd leave it, if it only flickers when it's starting up. Doesn't look like it's harming anything.

    Here's a good article on what a screen inverter is and does.

    At least your screen only flickers briefly upon startup, and isn't doing this all the time. :) Yeah, ignoring it in this case would be the best option methinks.
