My hinge broke

2018-06-21, 21:38 PM

So, second problem within two months. 

A couple of months ago, my charger caught on fire, and because I was out of warranty, I had to cough up $50 for another one. Now, the hinge just stopped working all of the sudden. I had no problems with it until now, but the bottom part of the bezel detached from the screen. Two screws literally popped out, and they rolled out of the machine when I closed it again. I looked at the repair manual, but the manual was assuming that the parts were still intact, and like I wrote before, two screws fell out with some of the plastic still on them. Any suggestions?


edit: It also makes a loud cracking sound when I open or close it, and it doesn't seem to stay in place, the lid seems to fall shut on its own.

I have the same situation as yours with my old HP laptop. You better send your laptop to the Lenovo Service Center, and you might pay for the repair fee. I believe it's wear and tear of the hinge parts.
