Screen going black and white-ish
Problem: Macbook Air 2011 Mid model has fallen a couple of times just near the thunderbolt port and part of the bottom right of the screen is dented. A year later the screen starts going grey and white-ish with tiny straight lines consistently up and down. However if the screen is moved around, or pressure is applied at the hinge especially to the right, near where the damage is it will go back to normal. Outputting to an external display shows that that it is a hardware problem with the laptop as there are no issues there.
I'm inclined to believe that it is the cable or the cable connexions which is at fault. I don't believe it's a GPU problem, as I can adjust the screen to make the display go back to normal which suggests that there's a connection being affected at the hinge or the actual display cable connection to the motherboard.
Any thoughts? I'm waiting for my tools to arrive to open it all up.
Here is a photo of the laptop when everything is fine:

Is this a good question?
