    I have two Acer laptops. BOTH have cracked at the hinge on the left.

    Maybe it's time for a class action lawsuit for defective Acer laptop cases. Anyone interested in starting or joining one, please drop me an email at [email protected]...

    I have a acer 3610 laptop. There is cracks on both sides, but the one on right has cracked completely and now the screen is coming apart.

    Screen is coming apart at the left hinge. Cannot be snapped back into place. When closed or at any position greater or less than a 90 degree angle, the crack expands. Cannot be properly closed.

    My compaq has the same issue - the hinges have cracked at the back of the screen so it no longer stays upright..

    Mechanically and visually the laptop is still fab.

Hi, the best I could recommend is to try Ebay "want it now" section and see if some one has the part you want available.

Can the battery case cover of an Olympus SP550 uz be easily obtained & easily replaced?

The cover on the camera is cracked or the battery case is cracked. If it is the battery that is cracked replace it immediately. If its the camera attachment that is cracked Gorilla Tape works wonders :)

Have a hp pavilion tx2000 laptop. outer screen is cracked but display is fine. can i replace just the cracked part and still have touch screen?

yes, of course.
you can visit a service center of HP Company and ask for "Shield or Cover Screen". (they ask you the exact model of your laptop)
and they will give you a cover screen which should be installed by yourself.
it's easy and cheap.
need more? only ask!

Replacing cracked laptop screen

The side rails are the hinges, in some cases you most remove or loosen the screws that attach the hinges at the bottom where the hinges attach to the lid. Once this is accomplished, the hinge supports will allow access to the sides of the screen in order to remove the lcd panel. Once the panel is released from its side attachments, the data cable can be pulled free from the back of the panel.

Toshiba Satellite M55-S325 PC Notebook outsde case

You definitely need to bring your laptop to the Toshiba shop near you. There they can facilitate the replacement of your laptop's body (casing). It is a critical task to do and I think a Toshiba authorized shop can help you with this. Thanks.

Hinges and top cracked on my Dell Inspiron 1525

unlikely that its still under warranty, but you can check the warranty status at
you may also find parts lists on their website. The plastic bezels on laptops aren't very hard to replace.

Cracked touch screen i9 phone

The I9 has a defect. The outer screen, which is glued, does not allow for expansion. My screen cracked after only a week of light use. My phone was NEVER DROPPED, and developed a small crack near the edge. Within two hours, the crack expanded to the other side of the screen. The phone i have was manufactured in the same month I got it. Motorola has some issues with their warranty system, and it only works sporatically. This phone will most likely be recalled.

Cracked psp screen

Youll have to open it up and look if the screen is cracked or the cover, the screen is behind the clear perspex of the outer case.
If its the screen then this will help:

Otherwise you ll need a new case:
