Display hinges connect two halves of a laptop the display


panel and base assembly. All regular laptops have two hinges
located on the left and right sides of the display panel. Tablet
PCs have one hinge-swivel located in the middle of the display.
The LCD screen mounts to the the screen mounting brackets
which are permanently attached to the display hinges. There
are two or more screws securing the LCD screen to each
mounting bracket.
The display hinges are not repairable. If the hinge is broken or
too loose to keep the display in an open position, you have to
replace it with a new one.

On the picture below you see a laptop with removed LCD


screen.

In order to remove and replace hinges, youll have to


disassemble both, the display panel and laptop base.
HINGE RELATED PROBLEMS
1. The laptop display feels loose. It will stay in the up position,
but when you move the display it feels floppy.

First of all, try tightening screws securing both hinges to the


laptop base and display cover. If tightening screws doesnt
help, apparently your hinges are worn out and will have to be
replaced soon.
2. The display will not stat in the up position. When you open
the display and leave it in the up position, it falls back.
Most likely one or both hinges are broken and have to be
replaced. Even if only one hinge is broken, I would recomment
replacing both hinges because the second one is worn out and
could break too in the near future.

How much does it cost to fix a hinge on a laptop?

Gateways seem to have a lot of hinge problems. The hinge


area seems narrower than others. Mine was NV57.
My question is: would lubrication have possibly prevented
the hinge from breaking? Do you recommend lubing
hinges? and with what?
I did notice the hinge sort of binding, and taking a lot of
force to close the lid. unless that was after the hinge had
failed.

I wanna thank you for make this kind of pages. I have a


great doubt. I got a laptop of Gateway designers, model m,
but I didnt found too much info about them. I was trying to
dismantle it, but I saw the inner lcd cable sticked to a foil or
silvered paper and following one of the two connections,
one of the cables was joined in a box that I dont know what
is it. I will apreciate if you can solve my doubts or make a
blog about them.
Tnx a lot.

I just received my VAIO ea, i think problem 1. The laptop


display feels loose. It will stay in the up position, but when
you move the display it feels floppy. It like when i poke the
laptop body, the screen will sway. Is this normal, or i just
received a lemon? I have read some post about tighten the
hinges, but it will apply pressure and wore it out. And
another thing, im able to open my laptop lid with just one
hand.

Hi again.
Just wanted to drop by and thank your for your help! I
found my screens part number, it was exactly where you
described. Also found a good seller on eBay from your link,

thanks so much for that.


The repair went swimmingly. I have a Laptop once again
rather than a very small desktop. =D
While I agree its not a beginners job, its not that difficult,
its just time-consuming. If youre prepared, with the correct
screwdrivers, and are careful in taking note of what goes
where, its rewarding and worthwhile.
Im not a beginner, but this is my first time working on a
laptop. I was very apprehensive for a long time, but I
shouldnt have been. Your site here gave me the guides
and assurance I needed to give it my first try. I cant thank
you enough, I think I may work on more notebooks in the
future now.
Repair took 4.5 hours, including occasional stops for
breaks and for lunch. Awesome! =D
Im one happy camper thank you again!
