    I have a Satellite M55-S1001 and have the same problem with the screen. The screen can fade to grey, the colors get inverted, and at its worst all I see are vertical streaks of color. If I tweak (slightly bend) the screen and apply pressure to the top of it, the picture returns to normal (as long as I maintain the pressure). I checked to make sure the video cable was not loose and it was connected just fine.

If you're pressing on the lcd itself, it could mean the cable is coming loose, in which case is easily repaired.
If you're pressing somewhere else on the laptop, it could mean many things. Either way, I'd certainly check around for a reputable locally owned repair shop specializing in laptop repair (such as ours does ;~) To bad you aren't in Broken Arrow Ok. or I'd be glad to take a look.
Good luck

The display fades out unless I press on the plastic molding around the top of the screen. If I keep pressure there, the display works, but if I let go, the screen fades. What's the problem?

There is a loose connection inside your lcd monitor. This is not a user-serviceable case. Proceed to your local service center. Pressing or applying pressure to your monitor may cause some more trouble and defect to your laptop. Goodluck.
