    THe screw did not solve the problem. Taking into shop and replacing the flip up lid...not a cheap solution.

The hing may be held in by that screw and i would say to find a matching screw and replace it or remove one of the two top center screws to replace it.

Hinges are loose on Toshiba NB505N508BL

Turn off the laptop, and remove the cord from the outlet.

Lift the laptop lid so the screen is in an open position.

Locate the small screws in the lower left and right corners of the screen.

If the screws are concealed by plastic plugs, carefully pry them out with a flathead screwdriver.

Use a Phillips screwdriver to turn each screw in a clockwise direction to tighten it.

Move the screen up and down to test it.

If it is still not tight, twist the screws counterclockwise to remove them.

Store the screws in a safe location.

Slip the tip of a knife into the seam where the front and rear of the screen meet.

Lift up on the knife to pry open the cover, and continue until the back cover is removed.

Rotate the laptop so the rear of the screen is facing you.

Locate the screws at the lower left and right corners of the screen.

Twist the screws in a clockwise direction to tighten.

Gently push the back of the screen into place with your fingers until it snaps back on.

Turn the notebook around so the monitor is facing you.

Reattach the screws to the bottom left and right corners of the screen.

Push the plastic plugs back over the screws if your computer had them.

hope this helps

The scanner lid won't close properly. I see the right back corner of the lid has popped out of it's socket. how can I fix this?

I have a Lexmark X6570 All In One Wi-Fi model. Just had the problem where I went to print and received an error message saying that the cover was open (when it wasn't). I noticed that the back right hand corner had slightly popped out of place for no apparent reason. Tried to pus it back into place with no luck.

Here's what happened and how to fix it:
There are two plastic hinges at the back of the 6500 series printers that allow the top cover to open for access to the ink cartridge carriage. The lower ends of the hinges are cylindrical shaped and each contains a very stiff steel spring inside. They are designed to prop the cover of the printer up and hold it open when opened. As the plastic material ages, it may weaken and the tension of the internal spring may break the round end of the hinge off. This causes the printer cover to not fully close (even though it may appear so). There is a switch in the main printer body that detects when the top cover it open (even partially), and the printer won't work in this condition.

To fix this, open the top cover and carefully disconnect the 3 wire harnesses and the ribbon cable that run from the top cover to the base of the printer. Then remove the 'paper jam' hatch cover from the back of the printer. There are two phillips screws on the back panel of the pinter (one is located behind the paper jam hatch cover). Remove these screws (they secure the plastic hinges in place). You should now be able to lift the complete top cover/ scanner table assembly off the rest of the printer. Look for a steel spring about 3 inches long...remove this along with the round base of the hinge which may have broken off and remained down inside the printer. Glue this piece back onto the end of the hinge, but leave the spring out. Now reassemble the printer in the reverse order of disassembly and you should be good to go. Note that the top cover or the printer will not stay propped open on it's own with the spring removed, but this is not really an issue.

I am not sure if new replacement hinges are readily available from Lexmark or other sources.

You could have a bad lid switch or the hinge may need to be bent to make better contact with the switch. If your washer has a oval cut out on the right side and an actuator on the rt side of the lid... the next time it acts up don't open the lid and turn the tub, simply push down on the rt side of the lid, if it starts to work replace the lid switch. If there is no hole or actuator on the rt side, then the lid switch is on the back left corner, when you open and close the lid you should hear a click. If you don't hear a click or if you hear it when the lid is almost closed you need to adjust the hinge. There are 2 screws on the back of the endcaps on the control panel remove them and flip up the control panel, use a screwdirver to pop out the spring clamps on the rt and lt sides of the top panel. approx 3-4 inches from the sides. just insert the tip into the front most part of the clamp and pry back. unclip the lid switch, and pull the cabinet forward. You should be able to bend the hinge a little so it makes better contact with the lid switch. hope this helps.

look over the top of the control panel look straight down you see 2 phillips head screws on either side youll need to remove, the console will flip back giving you access to the switch..just for curiosity its not "clicking" when you close the lid therefore it fills and stops, doesnt spin or drain???? try this the lid all the way, the left side hinge acts as the plunger for the switch.. feel under there open and close lid a little to help find the metal hinge. after finding the hinge place a 1/4 nutdriver(doesnt matter the size just needs a hollow shaft.) over the protruding portion of the hinge. still under the top but right there! when its on push the driver back(in essence bending hte armature back slightly). itll flex a bit as you push the hinge the door will push back(you got the right spot then). after you crank it back a bit try closing the lid now. did you hear it click??? your golden!!!!!!! no need to change.. reason for telling you this is for the most part the switch doesnt go bad but the lid /hinge isnt bent enough to make contact, and over time of swinging top into the fully opened position it actually bends to far forward to make contact. i have a box full of switched that other techs ordered and weren't needed. not saying they dont go bad ive seen that, but try this first might get lucky!!!!

Electrolux Oven EOG9330

Hope this helps (technique used on EOG9330XN):
1) With the door open, on each hinge, there is a top cover which lies flush with the hinge. Simply swing this cover up and back towards you. This unlocks the hinge. Undo both and carefully close the door, holding it at the bottom. The door should be able to be pulled away from the frame now. Lay the door on a flat surface.
2) The oven will normally be attached to the surrounding built-in cupbpard. If so, unscrew all attachment screws (mine had at least three per side) and pull the whole oven out about seven inches, supporting if neccessary. Each side panel has a locating screw in bottom front corner, so remove the screw. Peel back the side panel (only thin alloy, but watch for sharp edges) sufficiently to see.....
3) The two side securing screws for the door hinge receiver should be visible. After pulling receiver forward, if loose, tighten securing screws (use lock washers if available, as Electrolux don't provide them).
4) Reverse the procedure to finish job, fitting the door in the near vertical position to engage hinges in the receivers. Support the door, lower to open position and flip the locking hinge covers back.
[This technique works if the hinges aren't worn and if the door doesn't close properly, it usually means that the receivers are loose and have been pushed back into the oven frame].
