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.

I have a kenmore upright freezer model 970-254326 bought in 2011 from sears. The door opens left to right but in my tiny apartment I NEED it to open from right to left just to put things in and get th


You should see some plastic plugs or holes for mounting bolts on the opposite side of the freezer case. The latch mechanism should adapt from one side to another.
You would remove the top hinge and then lift the door off of the bottom hinge. Then you would remove the bottom hinge and switch it to the other side. Place the door onto the bottom hinge and then install the top hinge on the other corner of the case to match.
You should be able to move the handle from one side to the other. The magnets in the doorseal should work as before to keep the door closed. The interior light is usually centered on the bottom to aid in reversing the door opening.

Over time the hinge on my Dell 8100 Inspiron gradually froze up and broke the aluminum block in the middle of the the screw that held it in place, ie. half the threads on each side of the broken piece. ...


Very common break, best is to have service performed by some one that knows what they are doing, machine has to be taken apart and new base installed, sometimes if slight break they can be epoxy. but usually needs new base andor hinges.

take it your phone has been dropped a couple times? lol..

Does the screen work normally? either way if you havent fixed this yet (seeing as this is 23 days old as i post) your going to have to take your phone apart. you can try the easy way and take the bottom half apart but dont try to take the screen off. there is a flimsy ribbon cable that runs from the top corner of the bottom half through the hinge that is easier than heck to break. after you get the bottom half apart try pressing down on the plug of it to see if it is loose then try your phone again.

the reason i asked if the screen is working is because that one cable usually handles everything in the top half and when one thing in an electrical device (expecially a small one that has a bunch of tiny components) doesn't work there can be no telling what else will go with it

How to repair broken hinge of my Verizon LG Vx8350


I was able to take apart a VX8350 I have with a broken screen. I don't see any way to replace just the hinges with replacing the whole top part of the phone including the screen. The ribbon cable from the screen runs through the hinge part into the main assembly of the phone. It appears the cable can't be removed without cutting it.

Started with one side hinge first.
Inserted larger arm of lever first then inserted small lever, pressed with small screwdriver to engage a little slot {bottom side} of smaller lever to little stud inside.
With the same screwdriver engaged a little hinge to the notch of larger arm..
Did the same thing for other hinge.
Put the upper screws back,
Tightened bottom screws back.
Put the front glass and handle-bar back.
Put control panel assembly back.
Now it is ready to go.

Nintendo ds damaged ribbon cable


You can't buy a ribbon for the bottom screen. (You can buy the ribbon that connects the motherboard to the daughter board which connects the top screen.). A new screen is the answer but be very careful when taking off the touch screen. Gently pry the two screens apart or else you will need a new touch screen. Also make a note of how the touch screen is attached to the LCD screen, as the touch screen is not the same size as the LCD screen. How have you damaged the ribbon? Could it be that it may not be pushed tight and straight into the connector? BTW the top and bottom LCD screens are the same. Some unscrupulous dealers have been charging differing amounts for 'Top' or 'Bottom' screens!
