HP Pavillion zv6000 17" monitor

Hinges on the lap top are broken. HP will not sell me the part. HP said that I have to send it in and is going to cost me around 300. How can I get the part without going to HP to get it fixed.

    I have the same problem with my laptop. It started a while back when opening the screen it would not feel smooth and not want to lock into one position. I bought the extended warranty through CompUSA only to find out that I had to send it to Texas (I'm in Colorado) and I wouldn't get it back for a week or two... totally unacceptable and it was not what the warranty specified when I purchased it (for $300 additional I believe - and I think I might be just out of the warranty period now).
    I would also just like to buy parts and do the repair myself since I am good at these kinds of things (I think that one of my fans is out as well). Any suggestions would be a great help.

Check ebay, look for a whole top panel with broken LCD glass. Somebody usually parts out the whole thing. If you were in the states it would be easy to find a shop or scrap computer parts store. But overseas I am not sure of how it is done there.

No power from cord to computer


Hi...

If your laptop is under warranty go back to the manufacturer. If not go to hp center and buy a power cord of your charger which is totally fix to the charging hole.

Good luck

Hi, my laptop's monitor is broken, I mean the plastic top cover is broken by the corner where the hinges are to open and close. The monitor is still in place but I fear the monitor to come apart any moment...


If it is a minor crack you can actually use Krazy Glue. Use it sparingly and let it dry completely. Be careful not to glue the hinge in place.

Another option is to search for a replacement on eBay. Just search for "Acer Extensa 5420-5687" It would be best to have an assembly manual for this task. Ask the seller of the monitor for help or check Acer's website.
I recommend using a digital camera and taking pictures as you go to make sure you can put it back together correctly. Make sure you have the correct size screw driver and be very careful not to strip the screw heads.

Last resort is to send it in for repair but that may cost more than replacing it.

If this helps please vote for this solution.

HP Pavillion dv5000 Laptop to a Plasma TV using VGA cable


Easy, your going to have to use the function key its like "FN" or sometimes special key and press one of the F keys (F1,F2,F3) Look for a small TV singal or monitor signal on they key. That will transfer the video output from the lap top and enable your tv.

Can't get picture back on lap top after connecting to ext monitor


Hello there. You sound very frustrated. try this, go into your BIOS settings and cycle the settings for your vga adapter, or even reseting the options to basic performance. also, you could hook up the external monitor and disable it while it's hooked up. that should fix any problems with that(if you still have an extra.)

Hinges on Pavilion zv5000


Hinges are 2 seperate pieces that are attached to your LCD screen and then attached to the base of your laptop. I wouldn't be surprise that $160 is the repair cost. Hope this includes labour cost cuz its time consuming to open the laptop and take it about just to replace them.

You do this yourself by finding the same hinges on ebay and doing it yourself if you feel comfortable. If not leave it to a computer nerd who know how to.

Broken hinge


Take the scanner lid off by squeezing the plastic hinges inserted into the back of the cabinet.
Take the top hinge of the cartridge door off with the 2 tork screws holding it, using a small screw driver.
Go to a hardware store & pick up a pair of cabinet hinges no more than 2". (You need to buy a pair because they do not come separate)
Place the new cabinet hinge on the back to the right of the bottom hinge of the base cabinet. Mark holes, drill one top, in the door, & 1 bottom cabinet, pilot holes. Check alignment & insert screws.
Tighten the bottom screws. Leave a little slack in the top screws as they have to be a little off set to close completely. You will only need to open this Cartridge door to change cartriges, so, no sweat.
My cost was under $5 for a pair of brass hinges, & my time, about an hour, taking my time.
It's too bad HP won't supply their offset hinges. They are inexpensive & easy to replace.
I've had my unit for exactly 4 years now, so this fix is a lot cheaper than buying a new one. Besides, I have ink already purchased that does not fit new printers.....go figure....
Aloha.

Laptop screen in complete darkness but external monitor works fine


Make sure to check that it's plugged in on both ends - at the motherboard and on back of the screen.

The other possibility is that your inverter got shorted out somewhere along the way. Try shining a flashlight on the screen - if the cable is plugged in ok you will see a faint imge.
