About three weeks ago I received a PM from troubadix (yes - the "Mr. TPFanControl", whom i met several times in the past), in which he asked me if I would get "for free" a gray ThinkPad, which he still has in his cupboard since 10 years.Anyone who knows me knows that I can not see suffering ThinkPads So I said  with a "heavy heart" "Yes, i want to get it"  and a few days later I had a heavy package in my hands.Content:A ThinkPad 720C with broken basecover caused by a hardly movable left hinge and the right hinge was so stiff that opening the lid is no longer allowed and the power-supply.A new challenge for me to dismantle the cover, without opening the lid. Luckily I met the design of the 720C:The hinge covers could be removed gently but firmly that the retaining hooks broke off, but this was once regardless. Also, the cover of the LED-status indicators could be - this time without a break - removed.Then the removal of the lid was no longer a problem. Here, too, came to meet the design of the 720C: The connectors of the display cable were all under the LED cover strip so that a removal of the cover without opening the base cover was possible. The standby battery also is under the LED bar.Now the hard job started:Disassembling the entire computer.The first hurdle of the lid formed itself - all four cover screws fixing the display bezel to the back cover, were T5 Torx screws.

Today I face the same issue with poor quality hinges which got broken. I will request  all to say no to DELL laptop. 
Service Tag:<Service tag removed>
Express Service Code: <Express service code removed>
After 6 -7 month of use your hinges gone. Dell India support say, this does not cover on warranty.here was no drop, spill or accidental damage done to the laptop.
Dell India support  say it is due to usage. Please note laptop is meant to be use and not to keep on showcase. If your hinges broken with in 6 month, do you think next time the same user will ever look for a Dell laptop.
Either improve your quality in India or replaced your poor quality spare. Or else simple go away from India.
Our PM Mr Modi will not tolerate such poor quality service to Indian. I am going to take this matter to highest level. Please inform your India service to replace my hinges asap.

Hello Lenovo community! I've had a Thinkpad for years now - it's old enough it still says IBM Thinkpad - and it's time for a new computer, so I'll be ready against the sad day this one can't handle what I need anymore. I've narrowed it down to two Thinkpads, but I can't decide between them or see what the differences between them are. Perhaps someone here knows?The two are the Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E430 627156U and the Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E430 3254AEU. They both have 4 gigs of RAM and 500 gigs of Hard Drive space, though I think the 56U has a chiclet keyboard and the AEU has beveled. Does anyone know if the 56U has a full sized keyboard despite being chiclet? (I'm a writer, so the keyboard is a deal maker or breaker. It's also why I'm looking at 14" screens - all the 15.6" ones have that number pad and the keyboard shoved to the side. All I can see is that the keyboards are "Spill resistant", which doesn't tell me the size of the keys.)Does anyone have any knowledge of these two machines? Or even opinions on the two?

Answer:What's the difference? Thinkpad E430 56U vs Thinkpad E430 AEU

Hey there ChangelingChild,
 
I found this threadhere that may of be some interest to you. I see in the PSRef that both machines you are looking at come with a 6-row, spill resistant, multimedia FN keys keyboard. Where are you seeing a beveled keyboard? Generally they are island style/chiclet full sized keyboards. I'm certain some our E430 users should have some feedback as well.
 
E430: 6271-56U
i5-3210M(2.5Ghz), 4GB RAM, 500GB 7200rpm HD, 14in 1366x768 LCD, Intel HD 4000 Graphics, CDRW/DVDRW, 802.11bgn wireless,Bluetooth, 1Gb Ethernet, UltraNav, Fingerprint reader, Camera, 6c Li-Ion, Win7 Pro 64
 
E430: 3254-AEU
i5-2450M(2.5GHz), 4GB RAM,500GB 7200rpm HD,14in 1366x768 LCD,Intel HD 3000 Graphics,CDRW/DVDRW,Intel 802.11bgn wireless,Bluetooth,1Gb Ethernet,UltraNav,Fingerprint reader,Camera,6c Li-Ion,Win7 Pro 64 
 
It looks like the Primary difference between the machines lay with the processor, it's compatibility with RAM modules, and the integrated graphics. The 3210M appears to out perform the 2450M but you will need to take a look at this and see for yourself of the impact to your day to day performance/usage. You can see more indepth information when looking at the PSRef and comparing the two.
 
I hope this provides some information to help guide you in your decision. Good Luck, and keep us posted on your progress.

Hi, Over the past while I've noticed the lid of my laptop becoming quite loose. The hinges now have no control whatsoever and opening the laptop causes it to bend the enclosure upwards as well as cracking the plastic base. The laptop is still very much within warranty and has sustained no falling damage - literally just the day to day process of opening and closing it. As it seems to be an existing hardware fault for the model, am hoping for some assistance in having my warranty cover a repair.

Question: Broken Hinges

I bought my wife an HP Envy M6 notebook in March 2015. She has the exact same problem that other people have had with their notebook hinges. In her case, both have broken somehow.  Her notebook casing separates from the screen  when opening/closing, and it is hard to keep open unless you push the screen 110 - 120 degrees or so. When the notebook is closed, you can see a big gap between the screen and the casing. At this time, her screen has not suffered, but I experienced something similar myself with an older HP notebook and my screen turned light blue. I would like to avoid hers to get to that point. The warranty on her notebook has expired already, but I would like do something, so that she can continue using her laptop for another couple of years if possible. I think HP should have a plan (repair/replace) for this specific issue, since it seems to be a very common one among HP notebook owners.  This is the 3rd case of a hinge issue with HP notebooks in our household. I have kept getting them because I like their looks and versatility, but I am getting to the point where I might have to switch to a different manufacturer with stronger built machines.  Would appreciate any help... Thank you!

I've had my Pavilion g6 for at least two and a half years, and I've been satisfied with it, except for a pretty big issue that has been messing with the functionality. The left hinge completely broke a year or two ago and I've been dealing with it for over a year by pinching both sides of the base of the laptop where the hinge is located, and it was an annoyance, but a minor one. I figured it was just my computer and so I didn't think I could do anything about it, but today my other hinge broke, so I did some research and apparently this is a big problem for some HP computers. Is HP doing anything to fix this problem?

My HP Envy 15 is less than two years old and has never been dropped or handled roughly, but the hinges started popping open from normal use a few months after the warranty expired.  Seeing as I am  a college student and unable to afford expensive repairs I had hoped it wouldn't get worse if treated delicately and have avoided moving the hinges as much as possible.  Unfortunately several months later, the left hinge has now completely detached from the casing, the metal inside has popped out and the hinge cover has fallen off the computer entirely leaving the wires inside the hinge exposed and the left side of the screen unattached to the base of the laptop. The right hinge is seperating as well and is splitting the side of the computer open.  It can't be closed without breaking the rest of the way and it won't stay open without being supported.  As it is, the computer is almost completely unusable and my only options are to get it repaired or replace it because I need a computer for college. It appears from this forum that this damage is the result of a very common manufacturing defect, so I'd like to know what my options are for resolving this issue.  Does anyone know what can be done about this? Thanks!

Some of the plastic mounts are broken. An internet search revealed the problem is systemic with this laptop so we figure its a quality issue. What do we do next?

Around the December 2014/Jan 2015 (if I remember correctly) whenever I opened or closed the lid, it would jolt into place with a loud crack. Although concerning it was not causing any issues with the laptop. However screws started to fall out, I always kept them and put them back in though, but they made little difference. Eventually in the back left corner, between the hinge and the charger area, the laptop has begun to pull away from itself. It is so bad now that I am having trouble using the power button as the gap is so wide. I have NEVER dropped the laptop or handled it roughly. It is only ensured for inside a house so I have taken exceptional care of it. What can be done about this? I am not keen to pay to get it fixed as I am very tight on cash being a recent graduate.Does Acer have any solutions to this, as I have found many threads from people with similar issues.

Within the past month or two,  I started noticing an issue with the right hinge when trying to close the laptop.   About two weeks ago, the same issue started with the left hinge also.   It has now become a challenge trying to close the laptop.  It soulds like plastic is cracking/popping, and gets into a bind.   This is my home laptop, and has been very well cared for.  It has never been dropped or abused.   Any suggestions?

A year and a half ago we bought two HP laptops, an HP 15-r032nd and an HP 15-g221nd.On both laptops, within the space of one month, a hinge broke: one on the right side, one on the left. They are out of regular warranty, but it seems to me that this is a design and/or manufacturing error, considering the many threads in these forums and complaints in other online resources.Unfortunately the Dutch HP website does not offer direct contact possibilities for out of warranty products, which is why I post here. I hope to hear from HP through this channel! Best regards,Jeroen

Hi,

I have a top of the range (at the time of purchase) Satellite 502 901 (2.4Ghz, 80GB, 512 MB ram, fire wire, display 1600x1200, pentium 4 mobile, docking bay slot........). Unfortunately after one year I had problems. The unit is now 3 years old and the hinges are broken on the display. The DVD/CD drive also fails to operate occasionally. I also had a 'thunder fly' enter the screen, crawl to the middle and died there, very nice.

I still tenderly care for the laptop, whilst it cost me an arm and leg. I still like the laptop despite the problems but would like help as to where one can get help. I need the hinges for the screen (its part of the aluminum frame work within the main body of the laptop. Where can these be purchased? I live in GERMANY, but I'm English, and purchased the laptop in Southampton PC World England.

I would appreciate any help. I need only the parts, I have a computer technician already.


Mr.W.P.Spanner

Answer:Satellite 502 901 - Hinges are broken

Being that you have a fly die in the middle of the screen (not the first time I've heard of this happening) and the hinges are broken, it would be best to have the whole screen replaced. That combined with the CD/DVD drive faulting and the cost of doing the repairs, it would probably be best to just buy a whole new laptop. The maintainance is going to be rather expensive.

My widescreen P20 has broken hinges and I hear this is a common problem :( I took it to be fixed and they said it's not just the hinges but the inside of the lid too so it is unfixable. I need to find one for spares, at the moment I'm unable to touch the lid let alone close it!

I'm hoping if I buy the outside casing of a laptop, or just the lid, I can have my inside put into it. Does anyone know where I can get one? I have checked ebay and looked on this site but no luck so far.

My laptop is working perfectly fine up until  few weeks ago when I'm going to close it I heard a loud crack from the right hinge and when I tried opening it slowly because I fear that it will snap and lo and behold what I fear most really happened Worst of all the left hinge was also affected and right now I can't close my laptop because the lcd screen might get detached completely from the keyboard area. I've googled about the broken hinge issue and it seems that this is a manufacturing defect. Is there any way to fix the issue because the laptop is working fine except for the broken hinges.

I manage 27 x121e laptops for our students. 7 out of them have the left hinge broken off from the bottomcase. Only 2 of them have extra damage so I expect them to be bounced somehow. The other 5 have not fallen or whatever. They just broke by opening and closing the lid. This looks like a bad connection and since I am not the only one, what is Lenovo doing about it? Where can I go for a complaint and to get it fixed under warranty? My 1-year warranty ends in 8 days... With others, is this replaced under warranty? 

Answer:7 out of 27 left hinges broken x121e

Why should it not be replaced under warranty? Is it inappropriate to open and close a notebook? Id on a car, a door hinge was to break while properly opening or closing the door, would the manufacturer not have to repair this under warranty? I have made the mistake of buying a x121e (bought in Germany directly from Lenovo). The hinges of this notebook have startet to lift the notebook cover behind the keyboard. Lenovo Support, however, stated, that this is not covered by warranty. I read the warranty terms word by word (in German since the notebook was bought in Germany), and there is not statement that "mechanical faults" are not covered by warranty. I rtied to discuss this with the support staff, but I am not sure they even understood the details ofthe language. Of course, I asked to escalate this so that at least misunderstandings can be avoided, but this was strongly declined. What has happened to the ThinkPad brand? Once it was a guarantee for high class workmanship fit for any busines use. Today, it does not even have the quality of a comparable consumer product any more. I am a Professor at a UK University, and if we ever have to make a purchase decision, I am afraid we may no longer be able to consider ThinkPads to be worth the investment.

A while ago heard that there was a recall (2007) on this Emachine series regarding overheating and defective hinges. I have search around but no more info. I did register my laptop with Emachines when I got it over four years ago, they never contact me about this problem.
If anyone knows about this? help please?

I get the impression from what I read that they did not issue any recall notices to buyers of affected PCs but left the buyer to call up once they had a broken hinge, have you called Emachines to see if they are willing to replace the broken and known to be faulty part?

Very quick search and somewhere like this may have the parts you need http://www.notebookparts.com/ and if not email them they maybe able to get them.

I have an Sattelite Pro A60, sadly out of warranty. One of the screws that secure the hinges to the chassis has sheared off which means the hinge needs replacing.

When I took the top cover off (it covers an inch strip at the back of the laptop I noticed both hinges were cracked. This allows the left hand hinge to wobble (as the only thing holding the screen to the laptop is the single screw.

Basically both hinges need replacing as the only thing holding the screen to the laptop (on the right hand side) is the clip on cover!!! this actually works fairly well but of course it will be putting additional stress on the left hand side so probably will not be too long before the screw holding the left hand side shears off.

would any kind soul here know the part numbers for the left and right hinges?

Answer:Lenovo z575 broken hinges and antenna

Hi resnatop,
 
Sorry to have to welcome you to the community under these circumstances.
 
First of all, here's your Hardware Maintenance Manual .  It has disassembly instructions and part numbers.
How's your patience?  If you do the work yourself, you can find parts pretty cheap on Ebay.  Get yourself a decent set of precision screwdrivers and a set of thin needlenose pliers and if you don't have an anti-static mat, run your hands under water right before you get into the machine.  That will discharge any static electricity. Static is a computer killer. Make sure the battery is out before you start.
 
If you have a shop repair it, it probably will cost more  than a used one.  
 
Does it still turn on and work okay?
 
Regards,
Dave

Hello All,

I work in a computer shop doing repairs and sales. We are big fans of Toshiba laptops and very seldom experience problems with the ones we sell. I have, however, noticed that the Satellite L650D-102 seems to have a design defect in relation to the way the display is anchored to the bottom plastics of the laptop. I have had half a dozen laptops that have been brought back to the shop with a "loose" display.

After taking the laptop apart I noticed that where it screws into the bottom plastics it is actually broken from the bottom plastics. I was wondering if this would be covered by the Toshiba warranty or if anybody else has this problem?

Cheers,

Eddie

Answer:Broken Display Hinges on Satellite L650D-102

Hello Eddie

I?m really wondering you have noticed this on Satellite L650D-102. Generally speaking notebook design and especially display hinges should be the same or identical on whole L650/L650D series.

Following this forum I presume you are the first one who claims about this. Anyway, I recommend you to contact nearest Toshiba service and pick up some info about it. I hope Toshiba guys will be able to give you all necessary info.

Back to warranty. If this broken hinges are result of some material defect or design failure I?m pretty sure the replacement will be covered by Toshiba warranty. Of course notebook should not be already disassembled by some independent service at first. This will cancel Toshiba?s warranty.
Only authorized Toshiba service provider is authorized to disassemble the notebook.

Hi there,

I would suggest also to exchange the hinges, too, because the material surely started to be weakly and I think if you just exchange the lid and the case you will have the same problem after some time.

The new hinges should be harder and last longer..

Hey there, Both hinges of my Ideapad 300-14ISK are now broken after 6 months of light use. The right one started to freeze after less than 2 months from the purchase date. It has resulted in breaking the LCD cover as a result as I opened or closed the lid. About a month later, the left hinge did the same. I can't open or close the lid at all now. I am now looking for a replacement for those hinges since I gave up on trying to resolve this with the support team although it is still in the warranty (however I bought it from outside the US. They're claiming that's why they can't help me). The Lenovo website has 2 parts for the hinges for this model but I can't understand the difference between them. First one is "5H50K14044 - HINGE L+R LIMR L300-14IBR" while the second one is "5H50K14032 - HINGE L+R L300-14IBR". I can't figure out the difference between both parts.

I've had my netbook for less than 6 months (maybe used it less than 20 times all together), and the hinges of one side of my computer broke while I was opening my computer today. I called Lenovo and found out that I have to pay shipping and labor fee to get this fixed even though the person I talked to acknowledged that it was build damage. The woman stressed that it was company policy: you had to pay $80+etc; she mentioned how that this would be the case even if I wanted to go into a store and ask them to look at it.The woman also mentioned that it was this amount because I didn't have accidental damage coverage, which confused me as I made it specifically clear that I did nothing. This left me infuriated as  I would assume a warranty would ensure your product would last more than a few months, you know. I guess I'm looking for answers to several questions: 1) Does Lenovo's warranty actually cover anything? Beyond shipping, this is, which was what the person I called to made it sound like.2) The last time I had any problems with computers was a few years back. Are the warranties for computers this awful across the board nowadays?3) I looked at Lenovo's spare parts website and see that they sell replacements for hinges, but it encompasses the whole board. I only want a hinge for one side of my computer. I've kind of resigned myself to the damage the hinge did to the casing of my computer. Needless to say, I'm never buying their products again.

Hello,As I have seen with many other people on this forum and on the internet in general, it would appear I have faulty hinges on my HP ENVY m6. It started of with one hinge packing its bags and heading to the market and, then 6 months later, the other decided to join it. Now that the screen has been flopping about more than an epiletic llama for a few months, the screen has stopped working. I'm guesing a connection has come loose.My question is, is there anything getting done about these faulty hinges as they are not fit for purpose?  I seen a kid with one of those V-Tec laptops and the hinges were a work of art compared to my HP ones.Thanks in advance,Kerr

Because my computer is out of  warrenty for over a year the contact I had with Lenovo has proved to be useless.  I called on Monday 4/25/16 to be told that they could replace the hinges a one time courtesy repair because the hinges they put into this unit were not strong enough to hold the display and they were replacing them with new ones.  I was told I would be called in 3 business days for instructions on shipping.  Upday today 4/28/16 phone call from Lenovo telling me that because they don't make those parts anymore that I would not be eligible for any repairs.  She said the only thing they could do is offer me a 15% on the back end of a purchase from Lenovo for a new computer.  This was totally unacceptable to me and I told the woman I was livid to think a company this large could not make this right...If they knew these hinges were defective every single person should have been compensated for this defect.  Personally I will never buy another Lenovo product as long as I breathe!  Now to spend another $900.00 for a new computer is a HUGE expense.

I am having the exact same problem as everyone else previously post here from 2014. Both hinges on my laptop broken which causing the top and bottom case to seperate. Repalce screw and super glue is not help. I can't really snap back in place. Please advice for replacement. Otherwise, very happy with the performance.

I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details).

If you are unfamiliar with how the Forum's private message capability works, you can learn about that here.

Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forum.

Hi All, I just bought a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E430(3254-1B6) but I am not able to turn it on if I install the battery and even I am not able start it on direct power supply using the adaptor(After removing the battery). My Vendor told me to charge the battery for 12 hours. My vendor also told me that ThinkPad laptop does not start without battery. Please let me know what may be the actual problem with my laptop.

Answer:Not able to turn on Thinkpad E430

Hi, charankalcut
 
If the machine will not start when the AC adapter is plugged in with or without the battery, and there are no lights or sounds, then I think this system has a faulty systemboard.  One thing you can try is to remove the batter and the AC adapter from the machine and then hold down the power button for thirty seconds. This will remove all power from the machine. Once complete, put the battery back in, connect the AC adapter and try to turn it on again. If there are no lights, sounds, or other signs of power, then it sounds like a bad systemboard, in which case I would either contact the vendor or Lenovo support at 1800-3070-7555 or 1800-425-2666. Also, if plugged in, the system should be able to work without the battery.
 
Best,
Adam

I just got my thinkpad and it takes foreverrr to start up because of the bloatware installed on it. Can anyone list me the programs that I can delete that will not harm my computer.Thanks

Answer:Thinkpad E430 Bloatware

You can run Microsoft Fixit and it will run a scan and prompt you to disable programs (it will list programs that that you can turn off) from running at startup or you can let it automatically select the startup programs that are slowing the process.
