    The hinges appear to be broken or off track, couldn't pop it back into place, but now the screen just flops back and forth. Bought it August 2005

    Mine does the same thing! lol although i can see where the hinge in coming apart when i close the laptop. I got mine in February 2006 so its almost 3 years old. The letters q,w,e,r,u,i,o, and p quit working on my keyboard one day so i've had to use the on-screen keyboard =/ maybe time to get it serviced...

    Same exact problem with my zv600. Same hinge as the picture, only i can force the gap closed with my fingers. Thinkin about closing the gap and "welding" it with a good glue. opposite hinge is like new.

    I have the same problem as well with my Pavilion, but don't want to have to use a stand or prop it up. So...looks like I will be searching for a hinge. Just on the left side.

I have a HP Pavilion zv6000 laptop too, and I have the same problem. A year ago, the screen was getting loose and finally it just broke. Won't stand up. I've been propping it up against a wall for a year. I can see what is wrong: my laptop has gotten so hot that the back of the laptop where the hinges are has warped and ruined the hinges. Do you notice that? The split in the seem and the actual bend of the plastic? Anyway, the computer itself works perfectly. I was going to buy new hinges and replace them myself, but it was too much of a hassle, and I needed a new laptop anyway. The hinges are inexpensive. And the laptop isn't TOO difficult to take apart (search for the manual. it's easy to find). I took it apart with my Grandpa, and he's old, and I'm a girl. (okay, sexist, gender...ist.) I actually received a new laptop as a gift. Luckily. No solution, other than replacing hinges. I just wanted to let people know I too had the same problem.

Hinges needs replacement.

If you are a person who thinks you can do this go to ebay and find the exact parts (hinges) for your laptop and find the service manual to open it up and replace them. If you aren't teckie enough find a computer professional to do this. Very time consuming to open the laptop to replace 2 simple parts.

I built a simple stand that holds the back up. I have been using it for over a year and it works
fine. Also saves a lot of money.
I can build one for $10 plus shipping.
Just e-mail me for pictures codydunn@aol.com

I would like to disasemble my laptops hinges but dont know how


What is the Model Series number?
There is a slight difference between the ZV6000, and ZX5000/ZV5000 series, for this procedure.

I want to give you the link to the Service Manual, (Free)
It won't describe, or illustrate the entire procedure of removing the Hinges, but will help for me to guide you.

The basic procedure is to remove all electrical sources first.
AC adapter (Charger), and Battery. Work on a table.
Follow Anti-Static Precautions before you begin.

Have a multi-compartment container, for the various screws you will remove, and label each compartment for where the screws came from.
(You can use a clean egg carton in a pinch)

Open the laptop, remove the Strip Cover,

(Below the LCD screen, and above the Keyboard. There are screws to remove from the bottom, so that the Strip Cover can be removed)

The Strip Cover will be popped up, and out, and there is a procedure for this.
(Start at one end, work your way along, basically)

The Keyboard is removed next. There is a procedure so you don't break the tiny keyboard connection cable.

There is a Thermal Cover to remove.

Next are the Wireless Antenna cables, and Display cable.
There may also be a Display Ground cable.

Screw covers for the hinges are removed from the back. The hinge screws are removed next.

The above is a General, Basic, set of procedures.
Advise do not follow it.
It's just to give you a basic idea of what is entailed.

If your problem Does Not relate to the HP Pavilion ZV6000, ZX5000, or ZV5000 series of laptops, state what laptop manufacturer, and model series it is.

My screen won't stay open. i think the hinges are broken


Hi. The hinges are either broken or worn out. It is possible to replace them but it can be difficult to find them. I recommend calling around to a few local repair shops as they may have an old one of your model that they are using for parts. Here is a link that shows you how to replace a hinge http://www.insidemylaptop.com/repair-replace-broken-hinges-hp-pavilion-dv9000-notebook/


Also, here is a link to get actual HP parts http://h20141.www2.hp.com/hpparts/CountryChoice.aspx

Hp pavilion zv6000 wont recognize dvd+r


Hi Terry,

The answer is pretty simple, the ZV series is about 4 years old, back then DVD manufacturers decided which formats they would support as it was too expensive to make desktop drives, let alone, laptop drives that supported all formats. That drive only works with DVD-R and I believe DVD-RW. If you want to burn other formats, the laptop will only support them if you add an external drive of a newer make.

Note: Virtually all current models support ALL DVD formats and many support BluRay as well.

Hope this helps,


Chris

My Acer Aspire 3620 laptop screen is coming off and goes black


Take it somewhere and have them give you a quote. If just the screen needs to be replaced that's not too expensive, but if the hinge is damaged beyond repair it will be cheaper to buy a new computer.

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.
