    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

I have a broken hinge on a c300 . how do you replace that hinge. what all has to be disassembled?


Dear friend,
Try to find the similar hinge on your c300 at the nearest HP dealer, if you can't disassemble it just bring your laptop and ask for assistant, as far as I can remember, the hinge is sold as part at affordable price.
GoodLuck

Best Regards,

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.

Door very stiff won't close tight


I have the same problem with the side doors of my 04 express. I put penetrating oil on the hinge pin with a hypodermic needle (hard to find). It is important that the oil gets into the hinge. I bent one set of hinges and broke a hinge because I waited too long to oil the hinge. The door may not close correctly because the hinge may be slightly bent. Keep all other hinges well lubed especially during the winter months when the hinges can be exposed to road salt. Fixing a bent hinge is difficult at best.

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.
