Can you see any actual damage to the screen? Cracks etc. Look carefully all around.

Shine a torch on the screen. If you can see a dim image, there is a problem with backlight, inverter or cable.

If nothing, the screen or LCD cable is the culprit.

(cables/connectors could have been dislodged if lucky)

You'll need to open it up and have a look.

Disassembly links

Backlight links

Have a read of a few of those and see how you feel about having a go yourself.

Post back if you get stuck or need more info.

Could also be a problem with the lid switch (aka LCD Cover Switch). It may have moved or not operating correctly.

I found your service guide as well.

Try this.

Press CTRL and F7 togeather and see if this causes a flicker or the screen returns...
