Gateway CX2610- Broken Screen swivel

I need to replace a broken screen swivel/hinge on my Gateway CX2610 Tablet. I have found a couple of sources for the part, but I need to find some instructions on how to replace it.

    While looking up this information myself, I found the information below. It has to do with tightening the screws on the hinge but once it's opened it should not be hard to figure out to change the hinge if that is the problem.

    Hope this info helps us both.

    I haven't purchased the swivel hinge yet but will soon.


    Screen Wobble / Loose Hinge 1. Remove the black and silver plastic "strip" above the keyboard. (Use a small flat screwdriver to pry underneath the DEL key (on the right hand side of the keyboard) - be careful, it should require very little effort!)
    2. Pull gently upward and toward you on the plastic strip until you get it removed. Once removed, turn your screen around so the back of it is facing you. This will make removing the hinge cover much easier.
    3. Carefully pry upward on the hinge cover. If you look closely, you will notice that the back side of the hinge has a small half-circle piece of plastic. Pry this off carefully. It might require a slight amount of effort.
    4. After you have removed the half circle, turn the screen around so that the LCD is facing you. Now you will need to pry the larger half of the hinge cover off. (this is the side with the small oval window and arrow)
    5. Once removed, the cables connecting the tablet to the LCD should be visible. Carefully move these cables to the side and tighten all four of the screws holding the screen to the hinge.
    6. FINISHED! Re-assemble in reverse order.

Lenova x230 tablet swivel hinge repair

It is possible to replace the hinge, but it is a couple hours of tricky work. If you are not comfortable completely dismantling your computer, I would take it to a repair shop. You can usually find the hinge on ebay. Just search for "thinkpad x230 tablet swivel hinge part".

I replaced the hinge on my x61 tablet without any trouble, but I am very comfortable with repairing computers. Take lots of pictures to make sure you get it back together correctly, and keep track of where the screws go, there are a lot of them. Good luck!

Here is the repair manual for the x230:

A cracked screen

I have found new screens for the Kurio 7S, however I do not believe that anyone is selling the LCD screens for the 4s at this time. If is only the front glass that is broken, these can be found on Ebay.

Broken screen hinge/collar

You can purchase replacement hinges and hinge covers here: They may be a bit of work to replace. But short of replacing the hinge assembly, it doesn't sound like that is going to move.
