Compaq presario 1700 screen fault

My old Compaq Presario 17XL492 has a funny screen fault, which seems to
get worse when it is folded shut with power still on.

The colour gets a little washed-out with a redish tint. It seems like a
weird thing to happen and wondered what could be causing it? I know its
getting on in years but thought it might be someting as simple as an
adjustment/loose cable. Compared to my new laptop it gets pretty hot so
maybe this is affecting it?

....Thanks for any thoughts..

This is more likely an optical problem in the LCD panel or a CCFT lamp
in the panel that is simply dying due to age.  The lamps can be replaced
but it's a repair that is beyond the capabilities of most users.
