    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

try to move your lcd screen in forward and backward direction, see where you gain the display. if this didn't work, try to press the side around the lcd and see where gain the display.

17" flat screen not displaying

This message "safe mode press any key" sounds more like the problem is in the PC. You need to try another monitor with this PC, also try the monitor with other PC. Need to narrow down the problem first. Plase post back.

Canon DC100 LCD screen fades out

you might need a new lcd you could open and check the flex theres four screws holding it on when you get them off you pry by the bottom with your nail and gently pry it apart it will seem like it doesnt want to come off because there are four claws holding it together just try one side and if that side doesnt budge then go to the other side and try and then you will see the flex use a pair of tweezers to pop up the black piece holding the flex on be careful when you do this step take the flex out and put it back in with the tweezers and gently push the black piece back on sometimes thats all it needs theres also another flex at the other end theres a service note about that flex rubbing against a piece of metal thats holding the circuit board on and causing the lcd to short inspect the flex and if its ok you need to put a piece of tape over the flex to prevent this hope this helps
