    The hinge is too tight causing metal fatigue of the bracket holding the screen. This seem to be a manufacturing defact. I rarely open/close the lid. The vibration of the screen caused the metal bracket to crack.

Hi, i'd like to have some instructions on how to replace the keyboard on my acer 3680 ,thanks

Glad to Help You.

There should be a panel above the keyboard that is usually held in place by a series of tabs. You will need to pry it up. Starting from one corner, gently lift it until you can remove the entire panel. If it seems overly difficult, look around the LCD hinges for screws, some laptops have them. You should find that the keyboard is held in place by 2 - 3 screws at the top, remove these screws, lift the keyboard, whilst being careful with the ribbon connector.

Attention! Be very gentle with the keyboard connector on the motherboard.
f you break the keyboard connector, you’ll have to replace the entire motherboard or use the laptop only with an external keyboard.

Good Luck.

How do i replace the gasket on a top freezer refrigator?

Hi, first you will have to remove top freezer door, remove plastic cover from hinge, at left or right, above door, remove top hinge, tilt door slightly forward and lift off, be careful with spacers between door and hinge, you have to put back spacer between door and hinge to get proper alignment. put door on flat surface, lift rubber and check underneat, you will see screws or plastic clips, if there's screw, make like 3 or 4 turns with screwdriver, dont completely remove screw, if you don't have, don't know what type of ref. you got, remove old door gasket, replace new one, and put it back on. good luck.

Acer laptop crack at the back of LCD near the hinges.

In my experience, I have been able to replace the LCD Bezel to fix the crack. You can order this from any online parts store if you are a Do-It-Yourself type or any computer support company could help. Good Luck

Power up button (internal) broken

That hinge cover connects the top up above the keyboard. What needs to happen is the bottom part of the over needs to go over the holes near the keyboard and then the rest of the cover you will need to snap into place so its flat all around

Acer hinges hard to open google says known issues,will not fix says normal already cracked case above left cant figure how to open


Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

To your concern; hinge repair is relatively easy, what is more challenging is opening the lid and figuring out how to improve the hinge action to reduce the stiffness of closing the lid. For a pictorial illustration on how to open the lid cover to expose the hinge, please reference this page. For a generic how-to on hinge repair, pls check this out.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
