Lenova x230 tablet swivel hinge repair

It is possible to replace the hinge, but it is a couple hours of tricky work. If you are not comfortable completely dismantling your computer, I would take it to a repair shop. You can usually find the hinge on ebay. Just search for "thinkpad x230 tablet swivel hinge part".

I replaced the hinge on my x61 tablet without any trouble, but I am very comfortable with repairing computers. Take lots of pictures to make sure you get it back together correctly, and keep track of where the screws go, there are a lot of them. Good luck!

Here is the repair manual for the x230:

Why does my screen only turn on when I swivel it

This can be caused by a faulty microswitch inside of the hinge assy or a bad lcd cable. The lcd cable goes from your lcd to the main board. This would need to be repaired by an experienced technician.

Hope this helps.

Bottom hinge on GE side by side broke. Need to replace hinge but water line for ice maker/water dispenser runs thru it. How do you remove the water line so you can take off the door and replace hinge?

there should be a disconnect behind the kickplate under the door,also a disconnect for the wire harness too.don't cut anything,i've found people cut the wires and then had to replace the door for this.if for some reason there isn't a disconnect there remove the hose from the water valve but there's a disconnect there.pop off the kickplate and you should see it

The battery is located in the fender, ahead of the right front tire. Te battery can be removed without reovint the tire, but removing it improves access.

Here is how to remove/replace the battery

Gateway CX2620 Swivel Screen Laptop

This is the worst solution I've ever heard. This guy is trying to steer you wrong I'm pretty sure. There is zero point in removing all the screws from under the batter/ zero point to removing the area around the power button. Absolute BS. The only part to remove is the part just above the top of the keyboard (silver strip with some black). Then by removing that you can pry the swivel black plastic cover off. Whatever you do.. do not follow Scott's writeup here. I'm telling you. It's sad it's stayed up so long.. so had to warn.
