Ok this is a possible hardware issue, so do the following:
Do a hardware reset. Disconect AC adapter and remover battery.Then press power button for 10 seconds. Plug AC adapter and battery and test.
If the problema persist test a external monitor, maybe is just a problem in your screen.

Sorry but your screen is damaged. I suggest take it to a service center. It will be necessary change the screen.
