Lenovo Thinkpad S3 Yoga 14 hinges are out of alignment

2015-11-20, 6:08 AM

The other day I was closing my ThinkPad Yoga, and I noticed a bad-sounding crunch. I tried opening and closing it again, but there didn't seem to be a problem. But I noticed today that something definitely has happened.

 

Now, my hinges are out of alignment with one another. The right hinge looks OK, but the left hinge looks kinked forward. This causes the screen to be lopsided when in laptop mode, but it it also noticeable when the laptop and screen is flattened out.

 

See in the the following image how the right hinge is flat, but the left hinge is kinked up?

Is there anything that can be done about this?

Ouch.... that's gotta hurt :)

 

I just grabbed my TP Yoga 14 to see if there is a way, without forcing it, to turn it into that position and it is not possible.

 

Maybe it is time to send you machine to the local Lenovo Service Center and ask if the warranty will take over that.

I'm having this exact problem right now and this is the only thing I've found about it. Did you fix it? How?

Hi All,

 

I faced the same problem on the right hinge of my lenovo thinkpad yoga 14.

Since it is out of warranty now, I'm sure these guys won't be much helpful, though they should provide fix for all because of the poor design.

 

I was thinking to buy a hinge online and do it by myself.
I would like to know if its easily fixable at home..?? if anybody has some experience doing this..?

 

Thanks in advance

Ashish
