Internal screen on left is blinking and going black

I am so disappointed that I have only had my Z Fold 5 for just about 2 months and the internal screen on th3e left side keeps blinking and going black.  I have tried every trick I've seen on Youtube for it to not work.  I have reached out to Samsung only to be told that I have to find a authorized Samsung repair center which is nowhere close to me within 75 miles.  I know my phone is on a 2 year manufacturer warranty.  I have never dropped my phone or slammed it close.  I also had a friend warn me that her fold screen had a black line in the crease only after 3 weeks.  I am at my wits end on what to do with a phone that I cannot use when it is open.  The main feature that I purchased it for.  I'm somewhat starting to gravitate toward the "fruit"  and I hate that fruit products.  Please Samsung do something!
