I say it looks like either your graphics card is bad or the connections in the screen may be loose or need to be replaced. Or try and see if you can boot in safe mode by restarting then immediately press and hold the Shift key as your Mac starts up, then release the key when you see the login screen.

if your tech savvy you could take it apart and see if the cables are loose or damaged, if safe mode does not fix anything.

Hope that helps

Do you know what that part is called and if it is available here? My display works fine when opened at about 25% (unusable) and as you slowly open the screen vertically, it gets dimmer and dimmer until it goes completely black when it’s upright. The Genius Bar said I need a new display, but I’m hoping it might just be some sort of cable and they would not give me the details of the specific repair
