Right half of laptop screen goes white when lid moves. Is it the cable or is it the screen?

Super User Asked by nwroot on December 11, 2020

Title. The right half of my screen laptop goes white, with strips of color depending on the content (for example, if I’m on a webpage with mostly black text, the screen will go white with black strips). It only happens for less than a second before it fixes itself.

This mostly happens when the lid is moved. I have removed the screen bezel to inspect the internals and I tried poking the screen cable while the laptop is running but I wasn’t able to reproduce the issue. It apparently only happens when the lid is moved.

Looking at the screen doesn’t really reveal any damage so I’m thinking I need to replace the cable to solve the issue.

I can try taking a picture of the problem but it’s hard considering it only happens for less than a second.

My question is, is the problem on the cable or somewhere else? Also, if it’s the cable and it must be replaced, can I safely use the screen while I wait for the cable to arrive?
