Question about hinge tension adjustment - Ideapad flex 4 1580

2020-09-11, 2:29 AM

Hello!

 

My ideapad has the hinge issue that others have mentioned (the hinge has pulled the screws out of the plastic housing and now the laptop separates when I try to open it).

 

To prevent this from happening again, I was wondering what I could do to make the hinge looser? I do not see an adjustment of any kind.

 

Or is there any type of lubricant/grease I ought to use?

 

I've attached an image of the hinge

Have you referenced your system hardware manual and system user guides?

 

These are available by selecting "SUPPORT" word at the top of this page with the mouse.  Select PC support and enter your system serial number.  The detailed information for your individual machine will display.  Seek information from the buttons available.

 

Sincerely,

Usedtoberich

Thanks for the response.

 

I've taken a look at both the user guide as well as the hardware manual.

 

The user guide mentions nothing about adjustment for the hinge, and the hardware manual only mentions how to remove / install the hinge, but nothing about adjustment unfortunately.
