Screen with some coloured line. What do I need to do?

My screen has a row gray and white, multicolor, sometimes black.

But if I press behind the screen everything disappears, but I have to be all the time to press it.

I uploaded some pic, hope this help.

Is not a Gpu problem coz a test it with an external monitor and everything works fine without any line.

Do i need to buy lvds or a new screen?

Any link are appreciated:)

Thnx for help,

Mikhail Carlo Aromin.

I had the same issue with mine back in March. They did have to replace the screen. The flickery line was created due to stress (compression, bumping, etc…). Unfortunately, if you are out of warranty you'll have to pay for it, but even if you are in, and they find it's due to stress on the screen, there is a possibility you will still have to cover the replacement fee. My screen's stress was not because of me, however, it was because of Mac Authority. MA also broke a ram slot, put a used battery in the machine, and damaged the optical drive. Tip: Don't use Mac Authority :P I don't think you did, but just for future reference, don't.
