Loose flexible hinge

The monitor is no longer supported by the flexible hinge. Is there any way I can tighten it? I have had the monitor for just over a year.

I had the same problem. Samsung will replace the monitor if it is still within the factory warranty -- which I believe is 2 years.

Case loose round hinges


If the screws securing the hinges to the base of the laptop is loose then tighten these screws.
Hinges have no tightening adjustments and loose/faulty hinges need to be replaced.
These WEB sites can assist you to replace these hinges.
Replacing a hinge, or both of them, isn't very tough.

How to fix a striped door hinge screw


Hinge is loose on door so you go to tighten the screw and oops it won't tighten. Not a good idea to put a fatter screw in its place cause the screw head won't sit right and will cause other problems putting the same size screw but longer might work but not always possible. Here is the fix.
  1. Support door as to not to stress other hinge.
  2. Remove screws from hinge plate
  3. Apply wood glue to holes, Insert wood splinters, tooth picks, wooden match sticks into screw holes until tight.
  4. Allow wood glue to dry, trim flush.
  5. Re-install wood screws, until snug, don't over tighten.
Now good as new. I hope this trick of the trade saves you money and time.

My screen is loose, i would like to know how to tighten the screen..


You can take the laptop apart, and try to tighten the screws of the hinge. But i think the hinge is worn. You can try if the warranty covers it.

Good luck, and i hope this was helpful ;)

Loose hinge/lid on Dell latitude D410 laptop-lid does not stay upright and falls back flat and no screws to tighten...How can you fix this? Thanks


I took the hinge cover off to look for myself to see if there were in fact some set screws to tighten the monitor up. None were found, no suprise there. While on ebay ordering a new hinge set I noticed that the picture of the new hinges didn;t look the same as what I observed on the laptop. The pin on the right was sticking out on my lapto but in the picture on ebay it was flush.
I used a flat ended phillips tip screwdriver and pushed the pin back in while gently rocking the monitor back and forth. That seemed to solve the problem.

Lenovo Ideapad Y510 Hinge problem


hinges take alot of stress as they have to be quite tight to hold the screen in a certain position, alot of laptops can have over tightened hinges and cause splitting in the housing. Hinges can quite often come loose.
Make sure all screws are present around the hinge area and if you can tighten up your hinges.
If the hinges are badly damage you can buy replacments for a few $ off of ebay

Display on laptop loose


Try tightening all the screws around the hinge area, if that is not the problem I am sure the actual hinges can be replaced for a fairly reasonable amount.

Samsung monitor 970p triple hinge.. hinge collapsed how to restore


From doing a good amount of internet research I have found that this problem is "fixable". Inside the top portion of the arm there is a spring. That spring was made to support the weight of the screen, but after readjusting the screen so many times, the spring loses its ability to hold the weight. If you take apart the top part of the arm (the top part, not the sides, pop it off with a flathead, be careful) you can fix it a number of ways. I used a zip tie. Go right through the middle. and tighten it until you get the screen where you like it (forever). thats just want i did. Do some googleing people!
