I have had this once and ended up getting another screen . But you could try cleaning the connectors on both the board and the cable ends to make sure theres no lint or dust particals . Blow them out with compressed air or wash with IP alcohol 90+%. Ive been told for the screen to behave this way you zapped it with static but I have a hard time believing I zapped the screen I lost . Probably just a bad screen . Hope this helps
