Update (02/17/2018)


The hinge piece has been broken off.

Do I have to buy a new screen or can I solve it in another way?

Did you bang the system or drop it?


Dropped it, but was a long time ago. Few months. Had no problems then.

Depending on what happened you may need to replace the hinges or maybe just re-align them.

Follow this IFIXIT guide: MacBook Pro 15" Retina Display Mid 2012 Display Assembly Replacement Jump down to Step12 to see if loosing the hinge will allow you to re-align it. If the hinge has failed (galled up) then you'll need to replace one or both.
