Hinges on Pavilion zv5000

Top falls backward because hinges are broken. Have been told by two separate repair facilities that it will be around $160. Because hinges go all the way around the top.

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.

HP Pavilion ZE 2315 laptop with a black screen. First the screen image locked and now the screen will not even come on. Was told it's the GPU. How can I fix this?


Remove the screen and look for broken wire/s where the screen part hinges to the rest of the laptop. I repaired this very same problem last week. Provided the screen is not damaged, this may be your problem. Just remove the small, circular, rubber pads that hide the Phillips head screws (also provides for soft closings )and remove the screws. Use your fingers to pry off the plastic piece around the screen. Inspect the wires leading from the keyboard to the screen, and if broken (probably in the hinged area), solder and tape it

How do you fix a dm4 Hinge that is broke where it connects to the screen


You can buy hinges on ebay at:

http://www.ebay.com

Just type your computer make and model in the search followed by lcd hinges.

If the hinges are broken where the lcd screen connects to the base of the laptop then you will have to remove the screws from the bottom of the laptop and remove the strip that is at the top of the keyboard to get to them.

If the hinges on the side of the lcd frame is broken then you will have to remove the plastic strip that is around the lcd screen. Remove the plastic or rubber bumpers on the plastic strip then you will see screws to remove to remove the plastic strip. Then you will see hinges and screws on the side of the lcd screen that you can remove. Once you have them removed you can lean the lcd lid forward so that it drops in your hand. Don't let it drop on the keyboard, just into your hand and not too far because there is a cable on the back of the lcd that you don't want to damage. The cable can be taken loose from from the lcd at the back near the top if you like. Sometimes there might be a piece of tape securing it. If the lcd screen does not come out then there are screws on the 4 corners that is securing it and the hinges.

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

This isn't for a Gateway laptop, granted. But all laptops fall into a general replacement like this.

The hinges for the screen on my Sony TR1MP have


Unfortunately hinges are not repairable, so:

Buy hinges from here and replace them.

Unfortunately i can't find any service manual for TR1MP, so you should sort it out how to do it.

I just can say that you will need to remove palmrest, screen bezel, lcd screen to get access to hinges.

Broken laptop screen HP Pavilion ZV6000


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.
