Broken Laptop hinges

I have broken both of the hinges on a Phillips x72 laptop brought from the DSG retail group in 2008. The laptop appears to be a re branded Twin head machine as Phillips don't make their own, but I dont appear to be able to locate the parts to repair this. Can anyone help by either telling me the original twinhead model number, or by finding me a source of parts?

I had the same issue with my X72. The hinges of a Advent qrc430 will fit this model, As will most other parts off the advent.

Mike, I have the same problem with an X72 but can't get hold of hinges from either of these models anywhere! Where did you get the hinges please - or are there any other models that will fit?

Thanks, Rachel

HP Pavilion ZE 2315 laptop with a black screen. First the screen image locked and now the screen will not even come on. Was told it's the GPU. How can I fix this?

Remove the screen and look for broken wire/s where the screen part hinges to the rest of the laptop. I repaired this very same problem last week. Provided the screen is not damaged, this may be your problem. Just remove the small, circular, rubber pads that hide the Phillips head screws (also provides for soft closings )and remove the screws. Use your fingers to pry off the plastic piece around the screen. Inspect the wires leading from the keyboard to the screen, and if broken (probably in the hinged area), solder and tape it

The right hinge on the monitor is broken and the the monitor does not work at all. It appears the hinge locks on two hoop-like catches, and one of the two is broken. Thank you

hello your screen will not work because the wirering that comes from the laptop to the monitor has either broken or came away from its plug it would be best to leave it into a repair shop i hope this helps you goodluck

Broken Inspiron 1525 Lid


To fix your laptop follow the steps given below.
  • First of all as your hinges are broken you have to buy a pair of hinges for your laptop model.
  • This hinge includes the whole assembly made up of metal with a part which attaches your screen to the laptop.
  • Now you have to open up your laptop from the backside and disassemble the upper side.
  • This will make you see the part which detaches tour screen from the laptop.Just remove the screws and your screen will be completely detached.
  • now you can replace the damaged hinges with the new one.
  • you have to remove four screws for one hinge.Two screws supporting the screen and two attaches the screen with the laptop.
  • so remove these screws and replace the hinges and pack the laptop again.
And the lines are basically due to the movement of loose connector. So while fixing please fix the connector also.

Thank you

Broken (cracked) right Hinge on HP nc 4000 and Dell D600 Laptops

You can get replacement parts for this laptop, however it can get expensive. At the end of the day, you can use a super glue that is safe to use around electrical parts, but you might be better off just using an external monitor if you don't need to carry your laptop around.
