If the lid has a small slack and then is firmer again when the lid/screen is in another position, then the hinge mounting screws is most likely loose and the mounting screws needs to be tighten.
If the hinges are loose no matter what the position of the lid/screen is in then, they need to be replaced, there is no adjustment to tighten the hinges.

Replace tension pulley need speck

You need "spec". Just replace pulley, then pull it as tight as you can. after that, there should be no more than 1/4" slack in the pulley. In other words, try to bend the belt with your finger. Does it push out of line more than a quarter of an inch? If so, tighten it up.

How do I replace a belt on Model no. 110.67032600

The best way to get the correct length belt is to use a piece of string, wrap it around the pulleys. Then measure the string, subtract about an inch to an inch and a quarter. Take that measurement to your parts supply store. By subtracting that sum it will give you good belt tension.

Seems to petal to hard ??

Easy answer? Check you tire inflation.

More complex? It could be a number of things starting with your chain too tight. Have someone hold the back of the bike up and turn the crank to see if it turns easy. Take note of the chain; at some point when turning slowly you should see it/feel it loosen. If it seems really tight undo your rear axle bolts and adjust the chain so it has about a quarter inch of slack. Make sure that the wheel is centered before you tighten the bolts back down.

This also could be a problem: the back wheel wasn't secure and it is rubbing on the frame. Center the tire between the frame and tighten the bolts.

If all that is OK then it could be bad or over tight bearings.Then it is really bike shop time.

Disassemble rear panel, check all ground wires and connectors.

UNPLUG TELEVISION. While off, reseat every connector you can find on the back of the unit (unplug and plug in one at a time every single jack/cable connector you can see).

PLUG IN TELEVISION. With power on, carefully loosen (one quarter to 3/4 turn should do it) and then tighten every screw which has a cable attached to it (ground screws) and see if that fixes the picture as you are tightening the screws.


I had a similar issue as well as blotchy screen and this appeared to have resolved the issues.

Sony vaio vgn-ar730e/b lcd is loose

Remove the strip that is right above the keyboard then you will be able to get to the screws that hold the lcd. Remove the power cord, remove the battery and look inside the battery compartment to see if there are screws in it. If so remove them because the might hold the strip above the keyboard.

Turn the laptop back over and pry the strip off gently because there might be a cable attached to it. Now you should be able to tighten the screws that makes the lcd lid movable.

The display system of the vaio notebook went dim then finally died out.what is the possible problem and solution to the same

Hi akeyow..
Sounds like you have either a bad lcd screen or a bad lcd inverter.
To check to see if the screen is bad, connect the notebook to an external monitor that you know is working...if it works the you will have to replace the lcd screen.
If it doesn't work then the internal lcd inverter, will need replacement.
Both replacements take a better than average skill to replace, maybe best left to the pros...or sometimes you can check out YouTube and some people show you how to do it.
