hinge problem common?

Hello,

 

I read that there is hinge breking problem in Y510. My questions are,

1) Does it happens in every Y510 or 1 out of 10 or 2 out of 10 or x out of 10

2) If it happens, then whats the tentative date, like 1 month, 6 months

3) Does it happen again after its back from repair

Re: hinge problem common?

Well, if no one of owners is ont responding, I will =)

 

This problem happens but it is rare.

Statistic shows that around 6 users out of 400 members of both Lenovo forum and  Russian iXBT forum had this issue.

This happens in between 2-3 months of not intensive use.

 

In Russia owners had their laptops repaired in one workday.

It never happens again after repair.

Re: hinge problem common?

My boss at my last company broke the hinge on his T42 and he was never rough with it or anything.  Fact is, in some large quantity of things like hinges, which take a lot of torsional pressure, some small percentage is gonna have an cast in flaw that shows up after 2 to 3 months of usage, i.e. the front of the bathtub curve, and some folks are gonna have hinges break.  They too strong to break in QA testing before they go out, and too weak to survive.  If they all broke they'd stop shipping them because the cost of fixing that many broken hinges would easily outweigh the money made selling the laptops.

mr gauravchawla, i think after you get the case id you must visit the lenovo service centre. they will check the laptop and indent the necessary spares from the company.similar problem happened to me and it took 2 weeks to get my laptop back.
