This looks like a damaged board at he bottom of the display to me. Since external monitor works this confines it to the display.

See Dan's excellent answer on this issue: Grey strip on the screen

I do not think (hope) is the logic board, as in the gray stripe colors are a range of different and also remain engraved images (burn image effect, i think if the problem is the gpu or in general logic board i've a flat gray stripe on the screen without burning-effect or different gamma color), I think it's more the display retina bad, especially for the fact that by connecting to an external monitor (TV) the computer works fine.

now tomorrow i put on this machine a new retina display... i hope that i solve the problem, i'll post results...

I didn't say anything about it being the logic board. The board I'm talking about is in the display.

by

so i also think that problem is in the board with led at the bottom of the display, the board that control the light of the monitor maybe.. tomorrow is the day of the truth :D thank mayer for reply!
