How do you fix a dm4 Hinge that is broke where it connects to the screen


You can buy hinges on ebay at:

http://www.ebay.com

Just type your computer make and model in the search followed by lcd hinges.

If the hinges are broken where the lcd screen connects to the base of the laptop then you will have to remove the screws from the bottom of the laptop and remove the strip that is at the top of the keyboard to get to them.

If the hinges on the side of the lcd frame is broken then you will have to remove the plastic strip that is around the lcd screen. Remove the plastic or rubber bumpers on the plastic strip then you will see screws to remove to remove the plastic strip. Then you will see hinges and screws on the side of the lcd screen that you can remove. Once you have them removed you can lean the lcd lid forward so that it drops in your hand. Don't let it drop on the keyboard, just into your hand and not too far because there is a cable on the back of the lcd that you don't want to damage. The cable can be taken loose from from the lcd at the back near the top if you like. Sometimes there might be a piece of tape securing it. If the lcd screen does not come out then there are screws on the 4 corners that is securing it and the hinges.

MBP screen hinge tightening


Hinges are located under the lcd screen and go into the bottom of the base or palmrest. You'll need to remove the strip that is right above the keyboard that normally houses the power button on most laptops. The strip might be secured by screws that are on the bottom of the laptop. Be careful removing the strip, most times there is a cable attached to it under the bottom. Once the strip is removed the hinges are exposed. Just take a phillips head screw driver and tighten them.

Vertical lines on a screen


If the image is ok on an external monitor it
Could be a failing screen, or loose VGA cable
Remove the screen bezel and the hinges that hold the screen onto the lid, check that the vga cable is tight in the connector, check also that the inverter cable is secure and the lead from the motherboard to the other end of the inverter cable is tight.

Check if possible that the other end of the vga cable that goes to the motherboard has not worked loose.

If these are tight, the screen is beginning to fail and will need replacing
If you get the same problem on another external monitor, the problem lies in the graphics chip, sometimes , this is a sign of overheating, you should strip the laptop and clean out the fan and heatsink assembly

Need to replace cpu fan on Toshiba Satellite A85-S107 and can not get the laptop appart.


Remove the battery, unplug the unit.
  • Take off the hard drive cover by extracting the two screws that secure it and then taking it off. Take out the screw on the modem and wireless card cover and take the cover off. To remove the hard drive, shift it to the left to disconnect it from the motherboard and pull it out of the computer. Gently disconnect the Wi-Fi card antenna cables and take out the card. Extract the screws on the modem card, disconnect it from the motherboard, and then disconnect the cable to free it from the computer. Remove the optical drive screw, push the drive out of the laptop and then take it off. Extract the 15 screws out of the bottom of the laptop and turn the laptop over.
  • Open the laptop and fold back the LCD screen as far back as possible. Pry up the keyboard bezel (the plastic strip above the keyboard) by inserting a flat-head screwdriver or a spudger in the groove at the right side of the strip. Pull the bezel off the laptop. Extract the keyboard screws and fold the keyboard down over the palm rest. Release the flat cable that connects the keyboard to the motherboard and take the keyboard off the laptop. Remove the screws securing the LCD screen to the back side of the laptop. Disconnect the video cable and the Wi-Fi cable from the motherboard and remove the screws on the LCD screen hinges and then pull the screen off the laptop. There are four visible cables that are connected to the motherboard: the switchboard cable, the speaker cable and the touchpad cable. Disconnect all three. Take out the four screws from the top cover and pry the top cover off by running the flat-head screwdriver along the groove around the entire laptop and pulling it off. Now the laptop is completely disassembled to where the motherboard is exposed as the last remaining component.

Dometic rm2804 door hinges are worn and plastic strip retainer is broken off. On the lower door the hinge pins fit into round metal guides. In turn, the metal guides are held in place on the door corners...


I had this problem. I reversed the decorative plastic strips, both ends of the strip have hinge pin holes, so the doors can open left or right. I put the TOP decorative plastic strip on the bottom and BOTTOM on top.
