Im thinking more like a broken wire in the video harness that is causing the pixels not to get power,,
I say this because you mentioned that it happens when you push the monitor back,,, this would cause the break in connection and loss of pixel,,
problem as casey states is that the notebook monitor is often hardwired with the harness,,, and changing the monitor is the surest method of getting the issue dealt with,,
however,, if it is anything like IBM,, notebook monitor replacements cost anywhere from 1K and up,,,
so,,, can you live with it?
or do you have money to spend?
