Display shut down when completely open, works if partially fold

Hi there,

I have a MacBook A1181 mid 2009, which has this problem: when I open the lid, it only works at the opening, but when I put it into the correct position, the display shuts down (the pc is still running). So I have to use the Mac with the lid partially close, it works only in this position.

I think it is a problem in display cable...

Any suggestions?

Do I have to change the inverter cable?
