Yoga 2 Pro noisy hinge

2014-10-14, 0:41 AM

My Yoga 2 Pro's hinge has for the longest time made this somewhat loud "snap" sound when adjusting the hinge. It is just when it is in normal laptop mode. When I adjust the screen, it makes the sound and I can sort of feel it, too. It is only in the left hinge, though. I am really getting annoyed with it now. Also, just a few days ago, my right hinge started to make this completely different "crackling" noise when adjusting it from any angle. There are several of these crackle sounds. They are quiter than the snapping, and are a completely different sound. They also do not make any vibrations, unlike the snapping. What is going on here? Oh, I'd also like to add that for the longest time when I adjust the screen, in the very bottom left corner there is this pretty severe screen ripple. It is only on the left side and even occurs when I adjust the screen from the right side.

 I'm having the same problem with my Yoga 2 13.  The left hinge pin is hanging up and releasing with a loud (and disconcerting) snap.  I found that opening the computer in short movements helped alleviate the problem, and lately it works to hold the hinge in position with my left hand as i open the computer with my right hand.  Can I lubricate the hinge pins?  Any recommendations?
