Terca M1 Loose Display Hinge

Hi - I have a Tecra M1 that has a loose display hinge. Does anyone have instructions or a diagram of how to tighten the hinge?

    The left hinge sticks out from behind the little loudspeaker but the display still works fine. I just hope the thing does not fall off. I have phoned Toshiba and they say a spare part would cost £180. I used some advice from webpages and started disassembling the laptop. However, these help pages do not have detailed instructions for M1, only for M2 and M3. These seem to be different and I did not get to the bottom of it. I am glad I managed to put everything together again without loss of functionality. I have 3 screws surplus ;-)

    That is the very same issue that I have. It looks as though the bracket holding the panel to the chassis of the laptop has come off, not sure if broken or just slipped off through rough handling.

    This is the same problem I'm having with my tecra m1 but when I disassembled it I found out the hinges aren't screwed down like my satellite model laptop, then some of my keypads don't work anymore.......

The hinge can't be repaired, but it can be replaced. It's feasible to do it yourself if you're tech savy. Just look online for guides that show you how to replace the hinge on any laptop and you should get an idea how to do the replacement step by step for this specific model. Most hinge mechanisms use the same system. I work for Computer Repair NYC and i have to fix this problem a lot, you can get the hinge on ebay.

It wont start. the display keeps flashing and wont display any of the washing times for any of the functions


Hi,
Check the contact switches first. The hood hinges had become loose. My machine would not respond until the hinge was repaired by tightening the screws. Please let us know the make and model of the washing machine. Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

Lid/Top Loose


I have a Tecra M2 S630 and was able to fix my left hinge by removing it and drilling out the rivet and replacing it with a 6-32x1/4 inch machine screw and a nut. Total cost was $4 for a package of nuts and screws from Radio Shack.

Loose Hinge


Well, if you really want to know where the screws are, they are under the "Hewlett Packard" and "720" labels on hinge of the display. However, there seems to be some "screws and glue" fix available from HP to solve loose hinge issues. I'm not very sure abt this (could be for the 728)
