Replace the inverter cable that seems to be be broken in the PB hinge. You still have a backlight connection when moving the lid but sooner or later you'll lose it when the cable will be completely separated. Do the repair as soon as you can cause there's a risk to damage the logic board if the cable short in the hinge. Don't move to much the lid when the PB is powered until the cable is replaced.
