Thinkpad Yoga 14 cracking around hinges?

2015-05-19, 21:01 PM

I bought this laptop only a few months ago and have really only used it about once a week for work, but it seems to be exremely fragile.  Has anyone else had issues with the plastic cracking around the hinges?  Also, a screw pulled through the bottom bezel in the back right corner, and when you lift up the display from being closed you can see the bottom bezel flex and separate from the corner.

 

I haven't contacted support yet as I'm not even sure they warranty this kind of stuff.  I did remove the bottom bezel to replace the HDD with an SSD, but this screw issue occurred well after I had done that.

I am also having this cracking issue. I don't even spin the screen around (maybe 3 times since I purchased it), I never lift it from the screen and am very careful when carrying it and keep it very clean. 

 

Did you find an answer to this? is this something that Lenovo will replace? Any info from your experience would be greatly appreciated.

I ended up sending it in for service around the 10 month mark, so it was still under warranty. Everything was fixed, so I'm happy. I'm hoping it holds up this time. Hopefully yours is still under warranty?

I also am having cracking issues around the hinges.

 

In addition, there was an occasion where I flipped the screen into tent mode, and one hinge began to remain more stationary than the other.

 

I bought w/in the past year, so am going to attempt to send to support to fix. Hoping it goes smoothly, and doesn't take forever.
