Ouch!

I can tell you don’t use your system that much, Apple had a run of defective display assemblies. Basically, the steel hinge pin is press fitted into the softer aluminum and becomes loose overtime (usage). The newer version uses a larger keyed pin so there is less risk of failure.

Apple did offer an extended warranty program for this. I would try to get it covered, you may need to plead a bit asking for a warranty exception as well as this is not your fault!

If that fails its going to cost you!
