Macbook pro hinge crack


If the laptop still works you were lucky. The screen will die eventually when you open the lid too far again.
Take it to Apple and get it fixed.

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.

Can i fix my broken laptop.


Well, if the display comes on at all, then it must be a loose connection in the wiring. Sometimes this is a simple reseating of the main cable to the mother board which comes down from the display near or around one of the hinges (in most cases). I would suggest, purchasing a cheap external monitor, and plugging it into the rear or video out port if you have one, and switching your display to go to the external monitor, this will work good as a desktop scenario. Otherwise, you need to take it all apart and see if you can find out where the loose connection is, this is no easy task, and should be done by a qualified laptop repair person who has experience.

I need to know how to replace the display hinges on my presario


QUICK METHOD

1) Hinges supplied on ebay at about £15 a set. Non original parts seem fine.
A mini screwdriver set of decent quality with a magnetic feature helps & Duck (duct) tape.

2) Switch off and remove from mains source. Also flick battery holding switch and push out main
battery. Remove small Phillips screws under battery.

3) You can try the 'quick' method and not undo the whole of the base screws BUT be very careful
as you work not to damage the 2 sets of wires passing through the LH and RH hinges.

4) Pry off the long back top cover near hinges which has the start button on it and 'Presario' written
on. You do this by pushing from front just under F2 F3 SCROLL and PAUSE keys as well as from
the back. If you hold the keys down as you pry this helps. Use a thin blade of driver but be careful
not to split the thin plastic. TAKE YOUR TIME - BE FIRM BUT DON'T FORCE. Work round it
and it will eventually pop out upwards.

5) You have now access to the hinge cover(s) so remove these and also offending hinge(s) from main
body.
Don't let the lid sprain the hinges even further or break as existing good one! A temporary
hinge of Duck taping lid to base may help.

6) Take out the little grey rubber plugs from the screen side of the lid. They can be stuck back after.
Unscrew silver phillips screws (6 or 8 I think).

7) The plastic front of lid should now pry off and whole top opens up to reveal the side hinge
fastening. Unscrew little black screws and keep safe. Then carefully extract hinge.

8) Refitting basically just reverse of above. Hinges are naturally stiff to hold the screen so open
them up to the best angle to get all hinge screws in. A magnetic screwdriver does help!
Also, if both hinges have gone do one THEN the other to avoid pulling the lid cables too much.

I did mine, hinges fine and laptop still works!

The locking lid on Crock Pot SCVS600 has broken.


I had this same broken lid handle problem so I called the 800 number on the crock-pot.com website and got right through to a live person. Since my product is still under warranty (they asked for the manufacturing date code on the plug), instead of providing me a replacement part, which the very nice woman said is unavailable, they are sending me a whole new crock-pot. Not the same model (which the nice woman also said is unavailable) but a comparable unit which is OK with me. Maybe this is their solution to the lid hinge and handle problems.
