My laptop screen becomes discolored when I open it all the way up.... HELP!!!?

If I open the screen more than 90 degrees the screen becomes discolored. If I pull up on the left side of the hinge it fixes it. Is this a short of some kind??? Is this some thing I can fix??? Please let me know

    The ribbon cable in the hinge is getting pinched or stretched. You can possibly fix it by opening up the case and see what the cable may be getting hung up on. This is not something a person with no experience with taking apart a laptop should attempt, though. If it's under warranty then talk to the manufacturer or store you bought it from. If not, find a reputable independent computer repair shop in your area.
