intermittent video distortion (not nvidia recall per genuis bar scan)
Upon wake up, intermittently there is video distortion on the bottom 2/3'rds of the display. This state lasts from a few minutes to many hours before randomly returning to normal.

While this condition is present, I can connect to an external display, and the external display is normal and does not display the distortion.
Genuis bar scanned for the Nvidia recall, but no error codes were found.
Wondering if this is a bad LCD, bad inverter board, or bad logic board, or just a bad connection between one of those items.
Any help / suggestions on how to figure this issue out specifically would be much appreciated.
I have a replacement cable but have not yet installed it. A good smack to the bottom of the MBP fixes the display issue (temporarily) so I haven't got around to the cable swap yet.
Is this a good question?
