X230T Loose hinge?

I am constantly moving my computer between laptop and tablet mode.  After all of the twisting, the hinge doesn't seem to be as sturdy.  The screen is a bit floppier.  Does anyone know if there is a way to tighten the hinge?

Re: X230T Loose hinge?

Hi Bjc92,


Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!


I’m really sorry to hear that hinges of your Lenovo X230T had become loose after continuous switching between tablet and laptop mode.


Please refer to pages 67 & 103 in this user guide to see how to remove or fix hinge cap/ hinges.


Also, note that the hinges on laptops often become loose through wear and tear and will result in a screen that will not stay in place. In that case, tightening the hinges alone might not help resolve the issue. The hinges may have to be replaced.


Hope this information helped!


Best regards,
