Question about Toshiba Satelite 2410 Notebook

1 Answer

Screen wont stay up.

The hinges in my satellite 2410-603 are finished. The screen just flops about now. I have ordered the hinges from a toshiba service center but I am not sure how to go about replacing them. Is there a service manual available for this model or a guide anywhere? I've searched hi and low but cant find a thing.

I used a small screwdriver tool set from Radio Shack (about $15) and then I used guides (free) to get into the guts of the laptop. These guides are step by step and easy to follow. They didn't have my model, but they have a similare on and the info helped me get mine changed. Mine had gotten rock hard. Read the front page of the site for cautionary information in toshiba laptops as there are small parts in there. You want a working laptop when it's finished.

The display screen does not sit any viewing angle.

More than likely both hinges are broken (the screen pivots to the hinges). Nothing to do but to replace both L and R hinges.

Toshiba Satellite 2450

It sounds like the hinge itself is broken. I have a relative with exactly the same problem, her laptop screen became floppy and didnt stay in the upright position. The hinges for the screen are complicated in that they appear to come as a top/bottom part already joined together, and need to be replaced as such. The metal used for the hinges is really flimy and easily snaps. this sounds like what has happened to yours. The problem is that is appears to be not econimcally viable to repair, and your probably better off scrapping it or buying another with say;.. a cracked screen and doing a swap-over of parts to get one fully working one (thats what I did)

Cover will not stay opened

It sounds like you need new hinges for your computer. I didn't see any for your particular model on eBay which would be the best place to look but you may be able to contact Toshiba and order replacement hinges. To replace the hinges, you will need to remove the bezel from the LCE screen and possibly the power button board, depending on how your particular laptop is put together.
