Laptop model: HP 2000-379wm Where can I buy the display assembly (the entire top half)? Henges and all. I saved it from slamming on the cement from 2nd floor lol. Instead the entire top half broke.This was...


You should google search online as to instructions/how to guides. Type in "laptop hinges repair guide" and you should get good results.

As for buying hinges, I would search on ebay or online for hinges AFTER finding a good guide (the guide should tell you what you need). The replacement hinges should not be too costly assuming you only need to replace those.

This will probably entail taking your laptop case out, so I would recommend checking into dust cleaning from your laptop/risks just incase dust gets inside when you take off the outer case. But a guide should be more useful than my speculations about your problem/need.
If you still need assistance or more details/directed advice please respond and I'll be happy to help!

Can't close doc cover properly - seems 'broken' at hinge - can I fix this myself?


The left hinge breaks often enough that Brother changed the part number of the part. I hope that means the new part is stronger; I haven't seen one come back for a second repair. Assuming it's the larger, left hinge that's broken (It always is.), you need an LP2403001 HINGE ASSY L. You can find it from a servicing dealer or online, and it's easy to replace.

Look at the back of the machine and find two large phillips screws in holes. They keep the hinge blocks from coming up all the way out of the machine. Remove both of them and lift the top cover up until it's connected only by its cable. It might take a helper to hold the cover, but you need to unscrew the hinge assy. from the top. The three screws are obvious and easy to reach now that the cover is loose. Put the new hinge on, lower the top back down so the hinges drop into their holes, and put those screws back into the holes in back. You're done.

Replace key on logitech illuminated keyboard


Since this happened to me accidently a few times and I saw this thread, I thought my 25 cents could help others. I like the keyboard and it is troublesome to send it back for repair for a little thing like this. In my case, I was left with the square black key top and a pair of white hinges detached. You should replace the hinges properly in the base board first and after that press the key top gently and uniformly until you hear a couple of clicks. Make sure you are not irritated when you start this job and do not apply extreme force. It needs a little patience and fiddling. Unless you are lucky or an expert, it takes a number of times until you get it.

The two hinges need to be inserted in the metal clips of the base only after they are put together, not individually. Each hinge has two little rods on the narrow side and two little rods on the wider side. The wider side rods face up and will attach to the key top later. By now, you should be sure which rods of the hinges are up, towards you. Next, the hinges have to be attached to each other in the middle, like a foldable beach stool. You observe that one of them has a middle pin on each side, whereas the other has a corresponding cavity in the middle.

At the time you attach the hinges to each other in the middle, it has to be in such a way that the top part of each of them is smooth, that is, the part that will contact the key top. The side of the hinge that contacts the base has a little tongue between the two narrow rods. This tongue should face down in both hinges. You are now ready to place the little beach stool in the keyboard base.

In my case I inserted the hinge with the open part into the right metal clip and next inserted the rectangular opening to the left metal clip of the base. Whichever you do first is easy, but the second one might need a little help with a tiny screwdriver, or a tool with a similar effect. You might need a few attempts.

Now, your little hinges are attached to the board base and are not flat. They actually look like the legs of an open beach stool. Note which side of the key top is correct, it is annoying to go back to the beginning because you put the character upside down. It is time to press the key top gently and uniformly until you hear a couple of clicks. Unless there was serious damage to the board base or the parts we just mentioned, the key should work as smooth as the other keys.

Can I get parts to replace broken hinge? I have an HP Officejet 6210 All in One.


In the mean time, I kept my unit working by just removing the broken top half of the hinge.
You have to remove 5 screws using a TORX T10 screwdriver. First remove the small plate covering the back of hinge on the outside. Then remove the two vertical screws at the top of the hinge up under the hinge lip. Then open the cover (be careful to hold it in place so as not to damage the three flex connections between the lid and body) and remove the other two screws at the top of the hinge. Remove the broken top half of the hinge and lower the cover back down. Until you find a replacement hinge, you can put a piece of heavy duty tape on the back where the hinge was.

Broken in half got new shell don't know how to put together


much of it is pretty straight forward, the only hard part is putting the ribbon cable thru the hinge for the top screen, without ripping it, best thing to say is put the ribbon cable in first, then the wifi and mic cables (black and white), rest is pretty straightforward.

Nintendo DS Lite top screen broke on one side


The only way you can repair this properly is to replace the casing with a new one... the hinge is a common problem and over 90% of my customers on the DS and DS Lite need a new case due to broken hinges. Once the plastic bit has broken then it will only get worse. The small bit that you say fell out was the actual hinge itself (a small black part with a silver end that twists and locks your console into place when open). Hope that helps!
