Title:

Does my MacBook Pro 15 inch 2016 have FlexGate problem?

Text:

My MacBook have different syntomps than this described by iFixit here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aihRru-lCns

Mine is kind of “flickering” and it is usually doing this when tilt screen - definitely no “light bleed”

Could it be GPU? But why usually (which means not always) it flicker when tilt display.

I know about Apple MacBook 13”  2016+ display replace program but no 15” - are those 15” are safe?

I’ve done all simple tricks to be sure like - clean radiators - so I know GPU is not overheating (Mac Fan Control app installed and set to keep 50 C temp) - new and latest Mojave - PRAM Reset

Thank You for help
