    Thanks a lot for this video! I pushed the lid of my laptop' back too far and stripped the hinge out on one side. After that the screen kept fading out unless I constantly jiggled the lid. Turns out the ribbon cable had just come loose! This video showed me that connection and encouraged me to take the LCD screen out entirely, so I could check it. In my case, though, I did strip out two screws removing the screen – I think the manufacturer used thread lock. But I drilled the screws out. Now, if I can just figure out a good mechanical fix for the stripped out hinge!
