Horizontal stripes on 2/3 of my screen

Hi! Recently some bands of stripes appeared on 2/3 parts of my macbook's screen, these are more visible when I'm watching some dark/black pictures. I don't know if this is a problem of the lcd, the graphic card or any other?. Can u help me please? How can I fix them?

I attach a picture of my screen.

Thank u!

If the artifacts constantly appear in the same place (location/sector) of the display they would have to be problem pixels on the display,

Connect to an external monitor - if you notice the artifacts on that display in approximately the same location they probably are from the VGU/VGC - if they do not show up it eliminates the VGU as a source of the problem.

If the artifacts move around as you move the graphic's window they most likey are a problem in the software that is decoding the video stream. You could try a different software (application) to see if the artifacts go away.

If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it.
