Why I have thick vertical bar suddenly appear on my display?

Suddenly out of know where I have a thick dark vertical bar showing on my retina display. Anybody else have this kind of problem?

And sometimes inside the bar, it retains a few of my previous images (like LCD shadow/ghosting)

But in the middle of the bar every image I put in there, left a ghosting/shadowing mark on it, it was like this in video: MacBook Pro Retina Early 2015 display has blur horizontal thick line & shadowing problem

Try disconnecting the display cable, inspecting the pins both on the cable side and the port side for damage, dusting them with compressed air, then carefully reseat the cable. If that doesn’t help, you can try replacing the cable itself (cheaper than replacing the display). In my experience though, this specific visual glitch is normally due to damage to the display assembly itself and not an issue with the display cable. It may also be worth checking with an external monitor to verify the issue is not with the graphics, but rather the hardware of the display. My best guess is that the display assembly itself is damaged and would need to be replaced.

bad luck ? i just bought this from a friend and use it for about 3 days, changing the whole display assembly would cost as much as the macbook itself
