Post subject:  Gameboy weird horizontal line

Hi everyone, i've recently modded my GameBoy DMG-01, added a backlight and bivert mod. It looks pretty good, but there is a faint horizontal line near the bottom of the screen, sometimes it disappears and sometimes it comes back. I've included some pictures, any ideas?
(The line is more visible in real life.)

File comment: The pixels are visible, so i think it's not a dead line.

It is a weak connection from the bonding of the side ribbon to the glass. Unfortunately, unlike the common vertical lines, an easy fix is not known for this one as that ribbon is quite delicate.

Glad to see the "bivert" mod nitro2k01 and I made ages ago is still popular :P
