I opened up my laptop today and the right hinge is stuck and makes a strange cracking sound if I try to move it. The laptop is stuck open at 90 degrees, and cannot be moved from this position. I am travelling and will need to pack up my laptop in a few days, so I wish to resolve this issue.
I have read other forums where this is common in the Yoga laptops due to faulty hinges, and people have even cracked their screens from trying to move it from this position, which I am trying to avoid.
I also had a problem with the left hinge last year (under warrenty) where the hinge caused the monitor cable to become discconnected, but this has been fixed..
How can I solve this? This seems like a manufacturing fault for a laptop that can open 360 degrees.
