Question about Acer Extensa 5620 Notebook PC

Plastic casing over notbook hinges broken.

I have the Acer Extensa 5620 Notebook, and the plastic part that covers the metal hinges is cracking badly. I have contacted the manufaturer, but have gotten nowhere with ordering a new casing for the whole notebook. Any suggestions for a quick fix, or ideas where to look online to buy new casing?

Scroll down to the photo under Step 1.
On the cover that is being lifted in the air, look at the button at the bottom/right.

Circle that is open at the top, with a line coming through the opening, halfway.
Power On button.

Doesn't work? Perhaps you have a bad Power On switch.

The lid is very stiff to open and is cracking the casing


The hinges need to be serviced by a computer technician, using light oil. They may need to be replaced. I have seen this happen and if not sorted out, the hinges themselves break or the main chassis frame breaks. In which case it may be better to buy a new laptop. Get it sorted as soon as possible!!!

I have an Acer Extensa 5620 with a small lid closing problem


I have had this problem on several Acer models in the workshop and cured them in slightly different ways.

Method 1
The first had hinges that felt slightly rough and not smooth operating when closing the lid. This was cured by applying a very short spay of aerosol silicone grease to the hinges and wiping off the excess. It seems that dirt sometimes gets in the hinge and can prevent the hinge from closing properly. It’s a very fine amount to stop the sleep switch from activating.

Method 2
On the second the case seemed to be square and there were no seeming misalignments with the screen hinges etc. It also moved freely but did appear to be slightly worn so instead of replacing the entire screen surround and with the customers agreement I had to resort to a very small blob of two part epoxy resin on top of the protruding plastic nodule. This was filed, with a needle file, to remove a slight overhang and coloured black. Now no further problems.

Method 3
The third laptop had the screen removed and the hinges cleaned with isopropyl alcohol and then a smear of aerosol silicone grease applied to the hinges before reassembly.

Method 4
The fourth was the most expensive option as the screen surround had to be replaced. To do this gently remove the 4 black rubber inserts on the screen surround face and unscrew the 4 exposed screws. Gently lift off the screen surround and replace with the new one. Reinsert the 4 screws and replace the 4 black rubber inserts to hide the screws. Removal of the screen surround also gives access to the hinges.

Hi, my laptop's monitor is broken, I mean the plastic top cover is broken by the corner where the hinges are to open and close. The monitor is still in place but I fear the monitor to come apart any moment...


If it is a minor crack you can actually use Krazy Glue. Use it sparingly and let it dry completely. Be careful not to glue the hinge in place.

Another option is to search for a replacement on eBay. Just search for "Acer Extensa 5420-5687" It would be best to have an assembly manual for this task. Ask the seller of the monitor for help or check Acer's website.
I recommend using a digital camera and taking pictures as you go to make sure you can put it back together correctly. Make sure you have the correct size screw driver and be very careful not to strip the screw heads.

Last resort is to send it in for repair but that may cost more than replacing it.

If this helps please vote for this solution.

Hinges


You will have to buy the hinges, and take apart the laptop. Hinges are usually metal, most likly just the plastic covering the hinges are cracked.

Cracked front cover at hinges


What does work is this-
Superglue the cracked lid as you WILL have one of these if you are reading this post- dont rush, I did about 10 glue applications over a few days to let it set correctly.
Next remove the offending hinges. You will see to spring/pressed steel curves in the body of the hinge, Next hack saw one (the outer is easier to get to) of these off, this frees the hinge up very well. Worked for me so give it a try
