Could you please help me to solve this problem? Thank you so much
USe the guide to open the top case
check the connections there, look at the cables for crimps or shorts. If none there then remove the display bezel and check the connections to the inverter, while you're at it lube the hinges and tighten screws before reassembly.

The most likely culprit is the Display Data Cable : http://www.ifixit.com/MacBook-Parts/MacB...
Here's how to replace it: MacBook Pro 15" Core 2 Duo Models A1226 and A1260 Display Data Cable Replacement
Try pushing below the Apple on the back of the screen if the color returns your display cable probably isnt broken. It is easily fixable with some doublesided tape. Just follow the Installing display cable tutorial Without removing the cable. When opening the screen you can see the chip right next to the display connector, cut a piece of tape the size of the chip and paste it on there (between chip and plastic).
That should do the job and spare your some money on a new display cable you dont need..
