Question about HP Pavilion ZV5000, ZV6000, ZX5000 Series 12 Cell Li-Ion Battery - DP390A (DP390A1) CD-ROM Drive
The screen hinges are broken and now the screen won't stay up
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.

Hinges needs replacement.
If you are a person who thinks you can do this go to ebay and find the exact parts (hinges) for your laptop and find the service manual to open it up and replace them. If you aren't teckie enough find a computer professional to do this. Very time consuming to open the laptop to replace 2 simple parts.

I built a simple stand that holds the back up. I have been using it for over a year and it works
fine. Also saves a lot of money.
I can build one for $10 plus shipping.
Just e-mail me for pictures [email protected]
