Intermit flicker when used for a extended period of time whats wrong?

I was using my 17'' unibody and noticed the backlight flicker while i was using it on the internet.

This laptop is under warranty just so you know

Is it the screen or could the monitor cables be loose?


I opened the lid fast and will possibly take it to the apple store to get checked

Is this a good question?

Connect the MBP to an external monitor and check if the flicker reproduces on the external. If not I would suspect a failing inverter board or something related to the inverter board like a loose connection.
