17 R1, LCD shuts down when open too wide

I have a 2013 Alienware 17r1 running Windows 10. I cannot open the lid/display past 75° to 80° (less than 90°) or the display cuts out. Is there a sensor in the hinge assembly or is there another place in need to look?

Thank you for any assistance

If the display cuts out but the system is still running properly then it could be the LCD cable. Could be a broken or frayed wire in the cable.
