Re: Loose Hinge
Well, if you really want to know where the screws are, they are under the "Hewlett Packard" and "720" labels on hinge of the display.
However, there seems to be some "screws and glue" fix available from HP to solve loose hinge issues. I'm not very sure abt this (could be for the 728)

I have used the same handset.After 200-250 clicks of the lock,it becomes useless because of being broken.If you want to unlock the phone then you have to remove the lock using a pointed object and below this lock is the hinge which would unlock the phone.
You will have to get the lock replaced.
Was the flap changed by a techician ? I have played with my 1200 and thus know the flap hinge area has two special aspects :
(a) embedded-into-hinge-on-one-side, a spring loaded mechanism, for the firm open-close action.
(b) a small circular magnet embedded within the hinge framework (this magnet working from the right location should be essential to trigger the answer-when-flip-open or disconnect-when-flip-is-closed systems).
So your problem could be due to one or both of these things not being (re)installed correctly.
From my experience, the flex cables in the hinge go out. You can purchase a new LCD assembly on ebay or through other online part stores. Then its just a matter of removing the 2 T6 torx screws from the hinge and installing the new one.
I had the same problem, and i fixed, it's not totally true, the inners electronics components suffer damage with time, i think the hings and flex suffer needs to be cleaned with time, I follow the instructions at http://www.hpcfactor.com/support/cesd/h/0046.asp with to much care, an voila no more recallibrations needed,
With your revo closed use a craft knife (or similar thin blade) to prize-off the Revo badge. Under the badge you will find the heads of the wire hinges. Pull out both. The top and bottom **** is then free to slide out a bit. use the sam balde to prize the hinge sliders from the bottom **** (do one side at a time but do not force it. Once the sliders are out you then need to accesss the back of the hinge to release the ribbon cable. Assembly is the reverse of dissasembly. use a lighter to warm up the glue on the revo logo so that it bonds weel with the plastic surface.
I just bought a 900C on eBay and had the same problem. According to the seller "the video cable on the right under the hinge cover gets loose..if its reseated it will be fine..you could just press on the bottom of the hinge cover right and it will make it go away but best to reseat the cable."
I haven't tried his solution yet. Mine seems to intermittent since it is working fine right now.
