Flickering Screen sometimes, after just touching it it works again

Just got a new MacBook with a new problem - the screen flickers sometimes. I just need to touch it and it stops. What can it be this time? Backlight inverter Cable?

Thanks again!

sounds like whatever cabling you have that connects to the display on the monitor end is getting pinched. I don't know how to take macbooks apart though so I can't help you with how to rearrange the cabling but there must be a tutorial somwhere for that on this site

Thanks for response :) As far as I have experienced, its just when its connected to battery - maybe it doesn't get enough power because half an hour ago (Facetimed while it happened) my camera picture got very dark, then some freezing of my image and the image of my girlfriend, then complete macbook began to freeze and suddenly black screen and 2 seconds later it went off) - checked battery - MacBook said 50 percent, but battery was completely empty, after restarting macbook it showed 0.

I think its battery issue

If this is a new machine, I would return it to Apple for a warranty repair. Anything you do by opening it may void your warranty.
