Thanks - seems that little piece of blue sticky protector was my whole problem, months of a flickering screen, that was temporarily fixed upon pressing on the bottom of the bezel. Upon opening up the screen, it was crooked. So I straightened it, put things back together, and the flickering seems to be gone. Cross my fingers!
