From your Model series, I would assume the issue is with the video chip and reflowing the chip can work for an unpredictable amount of time. Quite a few people have had a good result from the service offered on the link below and they do fit a copper shim to allow better cooling of the chip ( heat being the main cause of the problem in the first place ).
