Apple appears to have a run of displays failing in the new 2016/182016/17 models!
Apple appears to have a run of displays failing in the new 2016/182016/17 models!
 
Sadly, the cable between the backlight within the display and the connection to the logic board is the issue here. The flexing of the display (opening & closing the lid) fatigues the wires within the ribbon cable. The complete lid needs to be swapped out.
 
Apple will likely issue an extended warranty for this (free repair). I would still make the effort to visit an Apple Store so its on record if you can't afford the repair now. They may even just repair it under warranty!
