Re: stiff hinge pin

These systems use a pretty generic hinge set-up. These can be dealt with in two ways, one involving a safer method for future adjustments. The hinges are two separate bars on each side of the monitor with friction cuffs that use the tension between their two pieces to hold the monitor stiff. Generally my experience with Acer models is that they ALL ship with pretty stiff hinges, which is a double-edged blade. Stock hinges that don't click when fresh have a tendency to need replacing after a couple years, where as my acer TM4K hinges are still strong today after 4. The best way to loosen these babies up is to just use it. About an average of 75 open/close cycles break in the hinge to where it stays nice & tight, but stops clicking or cracking. The other way, which is for those who are afraid the LCD housing will crack it's so tight, is to take the monitor off, but not apart, carefully using two pairs of needle-nose pliers, hold steady the monitor end with one set and with the other, flex the flat end of the now loose hinge back and forth as far as you can get it to move until you feel it is to the right strength.

It helps to mention that too little is better than too much, as I see a good amount of people burnt out with their Compaq Evo & Presario (ca.2001-2) hinges, falling to the ground soon as you let it go, only 6 months after their last replacement set.

I have an acer travelmate 2410 laptop and when i turn it on it works everything turns on but my screen remains black. i cant even log itnto my user account because it doesnt even bring it up. it just stays...

On my laptop there is a small button near the hinge end that switches the display off when the top is closed. Make sure yours is coming up. It is something you can check easily.

Acer travelmate 2410 hinges broke on cover how to remove broken hinges to repair

Very carefully, 1-push the screen right back holing the hinges where tey should be, 2-you have to unclip the black panel (over the power button) using an old credit card so yo dont damage the plastic, as this panel loops over the hinges & can only be removed with the screen right back, BUT remember to be carefull as the cables run through the blak covers & you don't want to snag them!
I've done this before so don't be afraid to pull hard start at the edges & make sure when aclip releases not to carry on pulling (use your thumb on the base of the comuter whilst pulling, dont just rip em off as you'll crack the panel quite easy.
but first I'd see if you can get replacements they're only aluminium angle plates with 2 screws holding them to the base.
Hope tis helps!
