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.

Try attaching a vga monitor to the vga port and reboot. If you get a picture, the backlight is probably burned out. You can try just getting the power circuitry that fits in the lid, or replacing the entire screen with the circuit.

My LG 8350 is snapping in half


I don't see a problem statement here that needs a solution by someone else.
Broken hinges on LG VX-8350 are notorious failure mode for this model. You may be able to find and obtain a water-damaged phone for small money and transplant only the keypad shell body (the broken hinge part) to your phone. To separate the keypad and screen shells on the good body unit, look here:

IBM thinkpad t42 boot up problem.


The most common reason is memory.

First, try to reseat (remove and reinsert).

If still a problem, test one module at a time.

Hope this helps.

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!
