    I have the same problem. The computer is great except for this issue. If I find the hinges are they hard to replace?

You need to contact a certified Toshiba reapir Specilist who can replace the hinges. If you do not have them changed, it might happen that the LCD screen might just fall off the hinges and you may end up with a broken Laptop.

Your hinges have gone and can be easily replaced. the difficulty will come when you try to by them. Try if you cant find the hinges give them a ring.

My KitchenAid Dishwasher door won't stay closed. It keeps popping open after a few seconds.

I experienced the same problem after my tension cables broke. The door fell open with such force that it bent the hinges a little. If you've replaced the tension strings (which you should do every 5-8 years) then you don't have to replace the latch. I did and it didn't solve the problem.
Here's the solution:
Put a towel at the bottom of each side of the door by the hinge.
Push the door closed a couple of times to bend back the hinges.
Remove the towels and you're back in action.
Good luck

S7600n wireless won't stay connected

Maybe you need to be closer to the router. Try moving next to the router and see if it loses the signal. If it does, your wireless card needs to be replaced.

Door won't close

Check to see if anything is restricting it from closing inside of the crevice where the wheel travels and locks. Sometimes debris from trees, dirt or rocks can clog it up.

I can't keep the tension on the blade tight. After a short period of use it loosens up and won't stay on the bar.

Check threads on tension bolt may be worn or adjuster threads that bolt screws into may b worn. Odd thing is if bar plate is tight bar should not move.

I have an hp pavilion dv 4000 and the cursor sticks and when I close the screen and then reopen, sometimes it works, but then it sticks again.

Check the cable that attaches your touch pad to the motherboard.

It may have come lose and so when you close the screen the moevement realigns it, until you move the laptop again and it comes lose again.

The lap top computer screen is loose

Those screens tend to lose their tightness as time goes on from all the opening and closing. Regrettably, there isn't much to be done with them except replacement of the part. You can jury rig it but that's about it. I,too, had a zv5000 and experienced the same thing.
Please don't hold my bad news against me when you rate my answer! ;-)
