When you try to move the lid angle, you are flexing the keyboard case around the hinge. That is putting pressure on the PCB which mounts to it and that loosens something that has come "unstuck" - could be a solder joint, could be a connector, could be a flexi that flexed too much. If it's out of warranty then it's worth opening it up and checking ram and processor seating, having a look at flexi cables and how "straight" they go into connectors, that kind of thing. If it's in warranty, then it's "backup and send to the service center" time - these things don't get better on their own, and they generally need some serious soldering skills (or a new MB which is the modern equivalent).
