You study (not just read) the guides and comments for the particular problem… in your case it sounds like loose clutches (Mac speak for hinges) have cut or nicked a cable or two (inverter - data display cable). The cables might be "fixable" with some silicone… or they may need rerouting and/or even replacement.

Just to ensure that it' not logic board or GPU/VGC related connect an external monitor… it should not lose its signal.
