thahn1608 is on a distinguished road

I've got an A1278 - 13" 2009 Macbook Pro, aluminum case with black keyboard.

So yesterday I opened the lid the computer has an 1-1/2" stripe running vertically down the right center of the screen. It "flashes" stripes of all colors, black, white, green, blue, etc. But the strange part is if I slightly "twist" the lid the screen functions normally. I mean just barely put pressure enough to warp it at the top of either side. I've been working all day with some serious psychedelic things happening and I'm trying to decide if it's the screen or just something knocked loose. I really don't want to buy a new one, but I don't want to put $500 into the old one...

Has anyone experienced this before? Is it a simple fix or a new screen in the future? What caused this (how can I do something different to keep this from happening again)? Any help is appreciated!
