Display only works on ext monitor depending on lid position

HP DV8 17" laptop

Given to me to try and sort out a no display issue

I assumed it might be the video chip, so I took it all apart and gave it a reflow - it didn't work....

An external monitor works on occasion, so was going to suggest using one, when I discovered that the position of the lid determines what I see

Now when you close the lid while booted up, it will go off (even tho I told it "take no action" in settings)

Then open the lid and it stays on for 5 secs and then goes off - repeat the process and the same thing happens ??

You have a reflow station?

Does it have a webcam? First guess is the graphics cable is still loose at one end, but I am sure you have checked that. If it has a webcam, disconnect that cable from the webcam and try it then.
