Probably not. That is usually a fault within the LCD screen itself. There's a small possibility it could be fractures or bad contacts where the LVDS (Low Voltage Digital Signalling) loom, which goes through the hinge up to the display, connects to the system board inside the body of the laptop (and to the LCD if it is not permanently attached). The contacts could be checked cleaned and re-connected to see if it has any effect. Fractures in the loom can be harder to prove, if the loom is socketed at both ends it can be measured with a meter or replaced, if it's permanantly attached to the display the display would have to be replaced either way.
