Left Screen Hinge on Thinkpad T42 is broken

The summary pretty much says it all. It just snapped one day. I can't find anyone selling replacement parts. Any ideas would be very welcome.

Thank you.

How difficult is it to replace the power connector in t42

$300 seems a little outrageous - try a local Mom & Pop PC repair shop. Stay away from those big electronics stores. It shouldn't cost you more than $60. Good luck!

Hinge broken

I hope to do this you will extra-ordinary careful in handling or removing the components process

1. You will have to loosen the screw at the back of the system and then raise the keyboard up gently then you will see a transparent cabling nylon at the back of the keyboard remove it from the motherboard gently and put that aside after that you remove the bracelet and the palmrest so then you will find tiny screw holding the hinges to the screen then gently loosen the screw and bring the hinges out then follow the removing skill to replace them back

2. If you need any assistance then post it again.
