Question about E-Machines M2350 Notebook

1 Answer

I have 2 emachines laptops. Both have broken hinges. One of them has a damaged screen but laptop works otherwise. The other was working ok until recently, it only had a wobbly screen due to the hinges, but now it doesn,t work at all. I kind of hoped it would be possible to replace the good screen onto the good computer but don,t know how, or if its feasible.

Difficult to comment but if a laptop comes in for me to repair and the hinge is broken and maybe cabinet damage, I would offer to replace the broken parts and replace the DC jack, if it was faulty. It is part of the service but may not be cheap to repair!
Hinges usually become loose and very rarely break.
Did the laptop work on the power supply but not on battery?

Mu laptop hinges are broken. I wanted to know what problems this may cause? Sometimes when I tipe words, it doesn't work in the screen. This could be related with the broken hinges?




Laptop hinges are generally made of low-cost metal alloys, or "pot metal yeah this may cause problem you can fix your broken hinges easily by spending little time ." Pot metal is not particularly durable, and over the course of a laptop's life cycle, repeated opening and closing of the computer's lid can cause wear that prevents the lid from staying in an open position. Hinges can also wear to the point that they break at the point of attachment, either on the lid or the computer's body.

Hinges are usually attached to the computer's frame via machine screws. In order to get the most life out of your computer's hinges, it is not a bad idea to perform a yearly inspection. Remove the hinge covers and check that the machine screws that secure the hinges are tightened fully. If screws are missing, contact the computer's manufacturer to order replacement screws; hinges missing screws are subjected to additional stress and can wear out faster if steps are not taken to replace the screw.
Lubrication of the hinge is possible, but not recommended; if the wrong type of lubricant is used, it could damage the computer's case or seep into the electrical components and further damage the computer. Consult a professional technician if you feel that your hinges require lubrication.

o Hinges can also be damaged when the computer is picked up by its lid, dropped from various heights or opened beyond the angle at which it should stop. In these situations, damage to the hinges may be of secondary concern, as component damage and data loss might have occurred. Depending on the amount of damage and warranty status, the computer may require complete replacement.

Laptop hinges are not indestructible, but their coverings and trim may show wear long before the hinges are actually in any danger of failure. Most laptops on the market include plastic hinge covers. The hinge covers can develop stress fractures from repeated wear; most of the time, this is not indicative of a hinge problem.
Some laptop hinges are housed within the bezel or trim of the computer's monitor or body. This, too, is generally made of plastic, and might develop stress cracks after a few years of use. Hinge covers and bezels are usually modular, and replacements are generally easy to find at low to moderate costs.

Repair

o Hinge problems can be mitigated with adjustments to the hinge's tension or additional hardware installation by the user. Brackets can be installed on the outer case to allow for hinge-like performance, or the screen can be mounted in a fixed position. If the screen is left permanently open, care should be taken to prevent damage to the screen and to prevent dust accumulation in the keyboard.
The lid and screen assembly can also be replaced, if the correct parts can be found. Replacement of the lid and screen can be cost-prohibitive, with parts and labor sometimes exceeding the cost of the computer.

My Asus laptop hinges were so stiff that now the have broken off the main laptop base (screen moves around and off the base of laptop. Please advise on best solution


Hi,

If the laptop is still under warranty, it might be worth checking if it's covered for accidents such as this. If so, you can hopefully get it repaired for free.

Otherwise, it might still be worth taking it to a repair shop / service and getting it fixed. If you don't mind the expense, of course.

Is the screen still working? If so, then it might fetch a good price on ebay, despite the damages. There are always people looking for broken machines to fix or use for parts.

The other alternative is to buy an external display, keyboard and laptop stand and simply use it as you would a desktop. A good guide on how to do this can be found here:

I hope this helps!

One of 2 things offhand. #1 Tighten the Hinge screws, many systems ground the LCD thru the hinges and if they get loose, lose some connectivity. #2 Reseat the LCD cable and inspect the cable where it passes thru the hinge assy for chafing and broken wires

Broken Inspiron 1525 Lid


hello

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

Need to remove the screen from my emachines 5405 laptop


The laptop screen is secured to the laptop with screws at the hinges.
There are usually two screws per hinge. The LCD screen has one ribbon cable and possibly a power connector for the back lighting attached to the motherboard near the hinges. Disconnect these, they are under the plastic panel next to the hinges.
