Hello!

I would like to request help from you. Has anyone ever encountered such problem, that when your Macbook pro would be a little shaken the colors get messed up the way in the picture below.



The macbook pro is -09 model, but I have another one too which doesn't have this problem.

Here's https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B_vQ...3pKeGpFU3VrblU
a short video which presents the problem. I would only shake the laptop a bit then the colors get distorted and another shake to make it go normal again. So what could be the problem? I tried Pulling the display data cable connector away from its socket and putting it back but nothing new.

Thanks in advance

Very likely a loose video cable or connector. You can find instructions for taking your MacBook Pro apart and check|re-seat the cables at iFixit: The free repair manual.
