Lenovo Y40-70 Screen Hinge Bending the Plate that holds the Screen


I have a laptop Lenovo Y40-70 and some odd plastic circles came out from it other day (it was in the desk, under the laptop). Then I realized that it started to get hard to open and close the screen. 


I removed the plastic cover that is in the edge of the lcd screen to take a look in what could be wrong. And here are some pictures:

That odd plastic circles that came out are like a plastic rivet and it are used to hold a metalic plate that connects the lcd structure to the hinge of the screen. In the absence of it the plate is bending and will brake very soon if it continues like that.I am leaving the screen open for now until I found a way to fix it.


I put some oil in the hinge for now, but it didn't give me any softness to open and close the screen. Any one have suggestions how to fix it?

Hello Felipe_A

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.

Looks like it will be a faulty hinge, if you are able to, I think the best action would be to get in touch with your Lenovo support line, and request a repair before the fault becomes even worse.

Below is the link to the phone list where you can find these numbers

Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.
