Display winking on and off?

Hi everyone.

I'm having a really annoying problem with my Macbook. This problem involves the LCD, that blinks if the lid is moved up or down.

To make it stop blinking I need to find a right angle of the lid or to press in the corners on the bottom right or left of the display.

Looks like the screen is broken... you might need to replace it. Not gonna be cheap though.

In most cases when moving the screen causes image glitches like this it is due to a faulty LVDS cable. However, the non-digital looking yellow fade in the corners would indicate an LCD failure.

The yellow faded corners are a mistake that I did using the heat gun to remove the front glass.

Thank you for the answer! :)
