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.

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

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.
