Loose Hinge

In the last few weeks the hinge on my 2+ yr old 720 has become much looser than before. Is there any way to tighten this myself?

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)

How to tighten binocular hinge


Simple solution: Pry or unscrew the cap covering the end of hinge shaft on the rear of the binocs (between the eyepieces). Use a screwdriver that fits snugly in the slot on the end of the shaft & tighten to desired tension. Place a dab of Goop-type cement on the inside of the cap if it was pried off & press it firmly back on the shaft . Helpful hint: Slide a small knife blade (an old dull one you don't use for cutting) under the cap and gently work your way around to pry it off. Note the position of the index numbers before you remove it so you can replace it in the same position.

How do you fix a soft closing toilet seat where one hinge has become loose, one side has become detatched


Sorry there is no fixing one. the reason the hinge probably came loose is the wood has cracked and/or the wood got wet and rotted and the screws won't stay tightened. Go to Walmart and get you a new seat.

Nikon compact binocular 25 years old. The hinge


Does this pair have two parallel tubes with a bridge in between?
If it does, then removing the caps at the eyepiece end of each hinge will reveal a grub screw. Tightening these will add tension to the hinge and give you the proper feel once more.

Really Up Sh/t Creek With Fridge Door Hinge (broken bolt)


Put 2 lock washers under the remaining 2 screws and dont over tighten.
This should hold the door fine just do not over load the door.
Go to the hardware store and get 2 new hardened screws if you think you damaged the remaining 2 screws.

If they dont have any that will fit try an auto parts store.

Last year, my 8 year old Whirlpool oven door would not stay closed all the way. I ordered new hinges, replaced them and it was great for 11 months. Still under warranty, I replaced them a second time......


Are you replacing the hinge guides as well? The hinge is usually only one half of the problem. When you remove the door, look into where the upper long arm of the hinge resided. You will see a little runner wheel. Touch it with a thin screw driver and see if the wheel feels loose. I'll bet at least one of them is!

Bosch Oven Door Problem - doesn't close at top


On our oven (Bosch Evolution 700 Series HGS7152UC), the problem was getting worse and worse. I found it is was worsening simply because the hinges had started to come loose. I removed the door as suggested above, and although there are no adjustment screws on this model I tightened the now-loose hinge mounting screws. For each hinge there are three screws altogether: two (phillips heads) on the bottom of the door and one (torx head) on the inside wall of the door. After tightening those screws it is a lot better, only leaks as much heat as it did when it was new which is tolerable. Still a bad design.

Sony vaio vgn fw21l,loose hinge


My hinge broke on my Sony VAIO and the solution I found was to purchase the Service Manual for the laptop then take the laptop apart and find out which part number the hinge was. Then purchase the hinge directly from USA, which took 1 week to come through and mended the laptop myself.

Sony are doing this to everyone who has problems with the hinges of the laptops as they state the guarantee covers everything EXCEPT the hinges. If you can get proof from a pc repair shop that the hinges are a design flaw then Sony will repair it free of charge, but they will still request a Diagnostic fee which will be refunded if the problem you described turns out to be true.
