Yes. Simply remove the hinge cover (above the keyboard). If you see a small notch on either side, you'll need a small screwdriver to pop it off by prying it and listening for the pops. It's scary the first time, but don't worry, it won't break, it's meant to be a beehatch to get off :P. But be sure your lappy is turned off, battery removed, and that the screen is as open as it can be before doing this 180 degrees!
Once it's off, you should be able to see the hinges, if they look loose, tighten them with jewel screwdrivers.
To put the cover back on, put it back on the opposite direction you took it off, and at a slight angle, press down moving from one side to the other until you hear it snap into place. The very end might take some leverage and muscle.

If this doesn't work, your hinges are getting old (and believe me dell ones are ****) and wearing out, and unfortuneately, only a book or smth can help you then. The only other fix is getting some dell lcd bezel hinges and replacing them (or sending it away to get it fixed), although it will be fixed for sure then.

My chain has fallen off, and I can't put it back on. Every time that i think I have it on there again, it falls off shortly after. I don't know if the first time it happened something feel off too...


Hi emsfy...

When you put your chain back on this time, you will need a open end adjustable wrench or a wrench that will fit the nuts that are on the rear axle shaft and wheel assembly.
When you get your wrench, loosen the two nuts (1 on each side of the axle) and pull the axle wheel assembly back towards the back of the slot the axel is sitting in to tighten the chain, when the chain is tight you will tighten the two axel nuts and the job is finished.
The chain will stay on now.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

Screen brightness, then disappearance.


Phone flex needs to be changed. As you open and close the flip phone, the flex worn-out gradually.

When you get it fixed, avoid opening the slide unnecessarily and also try as much as possible not to make your phone fall on the ground as this will damage the flex or even the screen.

Take care.

When you flip phone open inside screen stays white


Moto RAZR phones are notorious for this. Best thing to do - Get a new phone. Inside of the hinge, there is a sensor that detects if the phone is open or shut. When you open the phone, it still thinks its closed, so the screen stays white, and if im correct the outside display should still work. Pretty much not-fixable unless you know someone who can take it apart and re-position the sensor (will void the warranty)

Best thing to do....Upgrade.

Dell Inspiron screen coming off at hinges


It's a common problem with Dell Inspiron 1501 / 6000 / 6400 models. So tighten all screws on the bottom, on the back (where power cable connects), then remove cover on top of the keyboard and tighten screws there, then remove screen bezel and tighten screws there - here is how:

then put everything back.

Screen to stay open


If you are mechanical incline then open up the unit and remove a couple of gears. It will have two motors, one to slide the screen in/out and one to flip it up/down. Remove one of the gear next to each motor and make sure no other one will fall or pop out of place to cause jam later. Now you can operate the unit in manual mode(by hand, lol). Be very careful and remember what goes where and handle loose pieces gently or you might creat more problems than fixing it. I charge $50 shipped to perform the same service. Goodluck.
