y550 hinge issues.

Ever since I bought this y550 in August of 2009, I have been having trouble with the hinges. The screen closes on the left side of the machine, but does not do so on the right hand side of the machine unless I push down on the hinge. There is not much resistance when I do this, and I can feel it slide into place without any sounds or the feeling of breaking plastic, but I fear damage as a result of this problem. If anyone has any ideas I would appreciate the info.

Re: y550 hinge issues.

Hello, All!

 

the same trouble happened with hinges

 

i've resolved it in this way:

 

1 - remove battery

 

2 - remove 4 small screws under battery (there are 4 in one row)

 

3 - using flat screw-driver (5-7 mm tip width), remove sensor panel http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QM6nFVMGDFA (russian only, sorry) clips of the sensor panel are hard-to-open - insert flat screw-driver under panel closest to the clip & rotate the driver. sound of the opening clip is awful, but clips are robust! be careful to provide safety of electronics mounted on the panel and under the panel!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

4 - tighten 4 screws holding hinges

 

that is all!
