Sadly you’ve hit a known issue that has plagued a lot of people ;-{

And there are a others!

If you are lucky you haven’t permanently damaged the T-CON board. Make sure your systems vents are not blocked and you may want to dust out the system if you think it’s dirty. I would install a good thermal management app like TG Pro and pumping up the fans when you are pressing your system hard.

If that doesn’t help its time for a new display assembly - Ouch!
