    I was advised to remove the pins in the hinge and use emery cloth to reduce the friction, re assemble with a small dab of machine oil or wd40 and should have lossened up. Be carefull not to reduce the pin too much or will be loose.

On my gateway m series it seems over time they got tighter and tighter until i heard creaking when i opened it. i popped off the 2 plastic covers on either side to reveal the actual metal hinges. i put a few drops of spray on SILICON LUBE not wd40 which will definitally effect any plastic it makes contact with, trust me from experience. Then after the oily lube was applied i used a 5.5 mm wrench and loosened both nuts on either side just a turn, maybe less for yours. This allowed the lube to penetrate. Then laastly i applied SILICONE GREASE, both found at home depot. The grease helps maintain the lube that has penetrated the hinge. then re-assemble the covers and presto- saved about 100 bucks on new hinges.

I had the same problem with Gateway MA3 the hinge was tight it eventually caused the cast aluminum hinge pod to break. I epoxied the hinge pod back on and then i soaked the hinge after removing it from the LCD housing in a little WD-40 for about 30 minutes. Then I placed the flat end with the screw hole for the hinge pod in my cordless drill while holding the other end with pliers(be careful) and after a few burst from my drill the hinge started loosen up again be careful the hinge will get very hot if you go to fast. The is how I solved the tight hinge problem

My hp pavillion dv9000's hinge broke. But I was able to use it after. Then I tried to close it..and it just shut off and it will not come on. I want to know what I can do to fi it


HP *had* issued service alert 08112101 which covers the left display hinge failure.
HP Notebook Left Display Hinge Program
HP Pavilion Notebook
model series affected: dv9000, dv9100, dv9200, dv9400.

This program recently ended on May 31, 2009, but HP may still allow for a grace period.

Otherwise, you'll need the following:
Display panel back panel enclosure (single lamp) 432957-001
Display hinge kit (single lamp) 432963-001
LCD bezel w/ webcam (single lamp) 432955-001


Trained pro's should be able to do this in about 20mins, there is partial lower case disassembly and complete LCD housing dis/re-assembly.

UNABLE TO CLOSE LAPTAP NO FREE MOVEMENT ON LEFT SIDE


I believe that's the hinge screws on the computer that's too tight. If you have screwdrivers that can fit into the hole of the left hinge, you can just loosen them up & that should fix it. If you're not sure what to do, just take it to a local store and have them loosen them up.

Hope this helps.

HP Pavillion zv6000 17" monitor


Check ebay, look for a whole top panel with broken LCD glass. Somebody usually parts out the whole thing. If you were in the states it would be easy to find a shop or scrap computer parts store. But overseas I am not sure of how it is done there.

Laptop screen in complete darkness but external monitor works fine


Make sure to check that it's plugged in on both ends - at the motherboard and on back of the screen.

The other possibility is that your inverter got shorted out somewhere along the way. Try shining a flashlight on the screen - if the cable is plugged in ok you will see a faint imge.

No Display


First make sure everything else is getting power and operating okay, and that it is only the LCD display that is non-functional.

If you get no video signal or power at all, even at boot time, you probably have a dislodged ribbon cabling or power connection. Usually when LCD monitors go bad they show colour banding or all white, etc., but usually continue getting power.

As a last resort, try disassembling the lower case (with the power disconnected and the battery out of course) to expose the LCD monitor mounts, and then following the wiring from the screen into the laptop and check for anything loose or disconnected. You could also have a loose ribbon cable going into the LCD array, which will require disassembling the LCD cowling and mounts.

If you are handy and comfortable with electrics and find nothing loose, put the battery in and test the power line going to the LCD backlight, which should be getting above 7V (I think). Below that and you either have a bad video controller or bad wiring/solder joints somewhere. Otherwise, if the unit has been dropped or had a hard life generally, it could also be the connections between the LCD connector bus on the monitor array and the array itself. As a last resort, try unplugging and reconnecting all ribbon and connector cables, cleaning the exposed brass coloured runners lightly with rubbing acohol or even a pencil eraser.

Good luck...
