Title:

Broken LCD cable? or bad lcd?

Text:

Hi.
 
I have an MacBook Pro that suddenly freeze and shows a grey (see thru) screen.
 
If i touch the screen and close it a bit it unfreezes, and I can see that the mouse has been moves (if I move it during the freeze)
 
My question is: Is it the LVDS Display Cable that is broken?
 
Here is a movie that shows the problem. Right after the screen unfreeze it freeze again.

Sorry for my bad english :p
 
=== Update (03/16/2016) ===
 
Here is an update.
 
I installed a new LVDS cable. Worked fine in 5 minutes and then back to the same old...
 
I did discover something new when it freeze (and screen turnes grey). During the freeze: If i push the screen back a bit and hold it (give it some resistance) it unfreeze, and it works fine. If I release the pressure I give it, it freezes again.
 
Here is a new video showing what I try to explain :p
