Laptop hinge wont move

I would loosen or unscrew the 8? screws that hold the display on, this will loosen it off without everything coming apart, then tilt the screen down, lift the from the bottom of the screen, pry without breaking, take that panel off and see if you can replace or find the part that came out, it maybe screws or another piece. You can probably put it back together if it fell out, then just put the screen plate back on.

Is there an easy way to fix hidge on Y510 lenovo ? this appears to be common problem . I am totally a clutz so the repair would need to be something a novice could do thank you

Welcome to Fixya

Here's the procedure on how to replace the hinge.

Tips: ** Take your time -- Be aware of cables -- Separate the screws and keep them safe -- Unplug the laptop and remove the battery -- try to use an anti static strap --

1) You will need to remove all the screws from the bottom of the case to remove the top. You will also need to remove the large bottom cover and take out a few screws (sorry I cant remember which ones). You do not need to remove the screws on the heat sink. It will be pretty clear which ones need removing.

2) The plastic cover with quickplay buttons is clipped on. There is a gap above the F2/F3 keys where you can insert a flat head screw driver and gently twist. Be careful not to damage the wires!

3) The keyboard then lifts from the top but there are clips on the bottom which need to be gently twisted out. Furthermore you will need to remove the cable connecting the keyboard to the motherboard.

4) There is one screw underneath the keyboard holding the top down that needs to be removed.

5) After all the screws are removed from the bottom you can gently pry open the top from the bottom. Its all clipped together but you must be careful not to jam something inside. Check to make sure no other wires are connected that could be damaged when removing the top.

6) You will need to remove the 2 rubber pads at the bottom of the screen to gain access to the screws. After screws are removed you can gently pry the plastic cover off which exposes the top part of the hinge. I had the most trouble with this because i didn't want to scratch anything.

7) Remove the upper and lower square tab on the sides of the lcd and remove the screws.

8) The LCD actually slides down slightly which allows you to lift it and remove the hinges.

9) Changing the hinges is self explanatory at this point. Remember not to over tighten the screws!

10) Finally be very careful not to pinch the wires running past the hinges to the motherboard. I actually ran into a pinched wire which would cause the laptop to shut off when the screen was moved. So just be aware when tightening down the new hinge.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Laptop hinges are loose

The hinges can be loose in two different areas, but the most popular is the hinge attachment point behind the screen bezel. Remove the rubber screw covers from the bezel, remove the screws, take your finger nailas and from the inside of the bezel pull gently to the outside to release the catches on the screen lid. Start on one side and work your way around the screen until the bezel pops loose. Look at the bottom of the screen and you will see the hinge attachment points. Tighten them up. If you have some locktite this would be a good time to apply it, remove the screws one at a time and replace. To replace the bezel, always start at the bottom and work your way up.

You do not need to replace the hinges, however your need to remove the font panels of the screen and laptop to remove the hinges. You will see that the pin that connects the top part of the hinge to the bottom part of the hinges has over time moved out of alignment. With pliers and a hammer manipulate the hinge pin so that it is now flush with the hinge itself. You will see that the hinge will then become tight. Then just reinstall the hinge. I just did this and I know it works.

Screen swap out for a sony vaio vgn-fw235j

With the power disconnected. First off there are 4 rubbers on the screen bezel itself. Take those off and then unscrew the 4 screws.

Then take off the screen bezel itself, it will be held in by clips so you may have to use a flathead to pry it off.

Once you expose the screen, there might be one screw on each side holding in each screen hinge, if so that those screws out.

At this point there will be 4 screws holding the screen in on both the left and right side hinge.

Go ahead and take off the 4 screws on each side of the hinge and this will loosen the screen completely.

At this point go ahead and unseat the connector that goes to the inverter toward the bottom of the screen. Also unseat the connector that goes to the back of the lcd.

At this point you will have the old screen removed.

Now go ahead and screw in the screws on the left hinge and right hinge so the new screen will stay in place. Go ahead and hook up the connector to the inverter, hook up the connector to the back of the lcd. At this point go ahead and turn on the laptop and just verify that the screen works and that there is no defects such as lines in the screen or weird colors. If there is then you'll need another screen.

If you have the 2 screws, screw each one on each side of the hinges to keep the hinges in place.

Then go ahead and snap the front bezel in place, then go ahead and put the 4 screws in place and then the rubbers on and you'll have a working laptop with a new screen in place.

Replacing screen on toshiba sattilite a215-s6816

There are screws that fix the hinges to the base of the laptop, usually two screws per hinge and these are located on the back of the laptop, remove them. Remove the panel on the laptop that is adjacent to the bottom edge of the LCD screen, this may be a single part of the plastic around the keyboard, may have to remove the screws on the bottom of the laptop, carefully unclip the plastic surround around the keyboard.
There will be two connectors attached to the LCD, one for the video signals and the other for the backlight power, near the bottom edge of the LCD screen, detach these before you remove the LCD.

Replacing the whole monitor screen and bezel

Usually there is a plastic cover that snaps off right about the keyboard that covers the hinges. It is sometimes screwed from the bottom of the notebook thought. Once that is removed you should have a clearer view of what needs to be done. Sometimes there is a few screws from the bottom or back of the system that hold the hinges and sometimes the screws are on top of the hinges. You should also see all the cables that go from the screen to the system, unplug those. Hopefully that is all you need to do, but sometimes you have to remove the keyboard and palmrest to get the screen off. Good Luck!
