Acer 3610 crack by hinges on monitor

Is there anything I can do myself to fix the crack on the lid by the hinges. I have called for repair but I cannot afford it. I know this is a common problem and I am sure someone has found a way to fix it. I need my laptop to last at least 2 more years

    I have had the same problem but mind eventually cracked on both hinges. They are far to tight. We purchased a new lid and repaired ourselves for less than £20 Acer wanted nearly £50. Only things is the lid has now cracked again.

My left side cracked. I crazy glued it carefully, and it held for about a week only. I scraped off the old crazy glue and reglued again even more carefully while keeping upward pressure on the lid. I then cut out a piece of plastic from a 3M 3 1/2 inch floppy disk to fit over the crack and carzy glued that into place still keeping upward pressure on the lid the entire time. That repair has held for three months now.

I noticed that the other side was just starting to get a hairline crack, so I made the same repair to that side too as preventative measure.

I also noticed that the screws under the rubber inserts on the front side of the lid in front of the hinges were loose. I tightened those up, and that helped to spread some of the stress to the front part of the lid. I think that has a lot to do with the cracking problem.

Hi there,

Sorry bout the late reply but it happened to my acer laptop 4 times in the first year of purchasing it. On the fifth time I had an expert look at it and changed the screen from my model which was a aspire 5020 to a screen from a 5024 which was slightly a bit bigger and the problem hasn't happened again.. Hope this helps.

I have the same POS Acer 3610 and my lid is cracking. My wife's mom purchased one too and she has the same problem... I was thinking about using JB Weld or some other epoxy type stuff to reinforce the weak area. I tried super glue when it first appeared and it seemed to hold but then cracked again after time. I think it might be wise to use a *little* bit of wd40 or other light oil to loosen the strength of the hinge. I have not tried this yet but will be doing it once I do the JB Weld repair.

It's too bad that these Acer's have this issue as they seem like a fair machine otherwise.

I have an ACER Extensa 4620Z and the hinge cracked that caused my screen to go black. Is there a call Back for faulty design?

hello, sorry to hear your situation.

After doing research I could not find any Acer recall for your model listed. Again, sorry.

May I ask a few questions?

How old is it? Did any excessive use cause the damage? Maybe a drop occurred?

Not to accuse you, but, these are the kind of question you may be asked if you contact the manufacturer.

If your laptop is not too old I would definitely contact Acer for warranty repair.

My cousin had a similar experience with a different manufacturer and to both of our surprise they fixed his screen for free. I cannot promise the same will be true for you but it is worth a try.

here is a direct link for Acer warranty repair.


Good Luck!

Acer inverter

Sorry mate, first of all for Laptops it is not easy for anyone to fix the cracked screen. they need special tools to fix them. The inverter is the battery that you will have to checked. If it is old enough to get changed do that at first priority and everything should be up and running

Acer extensa 5420 - crack on lid near both hinges....lid hinges seem tight causing strain and causing crack. Laptop is 9 months old...Is the fix/replacement covered under warranty?

Anything cosmetic is never covered under warrany unless there is a recall from the company and I don't remember hearing any recalls from Acer recently.

Only thing I can suggest is to get a hold of Acer and explain the situation and see if threre was or is a recall on your model.

My best solution, go to this page:

Either fill out the form or call the number and see what they can do.

Let me know what they say and If they can't help at all then there is other routes we can try to take to keep costs down.

Cracks near hinge Acer 3613 laptop

Apply a lubricant to the hinges themselves - not a ton of lubricant, as you don't want anything running down into the laptop proper.

What sound like has happened is that the display has somehow been in a bind, and therefore the hinges are in a bind. This makes it harder to moved the hinges, and thus when you open the lid it is making the cracks.

You may also want to unseat / unscrew the hinges and re-tighen the little screws that hold them in place.

Acer hinges hard to open google says known issues,will not fix says normal already cracked case above left cant figure how to open


Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

To your concern; hinge repair is relatively easy, what is more challenging is opening the lid and figuring out how to improve the hinge action to reduce the stiffness of closing the lid. For a pictorial illustration on how to open the lid cover to expose the hinge, please reference this page. For a generic how-to on hinge repair, pls check this out.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Cracked front cover at hinges

What does work is this-
Superglue the cracked lid as you WILL have one of these if you are reading this post- dont rush, I did about 10 glue applications over a few days to let it set correctly.
Next remove the offending hinges. You will see to spring/pressed steel curves in the body of the hinge, Next hack saw one (the outer is easier to get to) of these off, this frees the hinge up very well. Worked for me so give it a try
