Y50-70 Laptop Black Plastic Around Screen Peeling Off

Q: Y50-70 Laptop Black Plastic Around Screen Peeling Off

I have had my laptop for just under 3.5 years and it has served me great as a college student. Just now I tried opening the laptop and it made a cracking sound, after slowly opening it I found that the black plastic border on the lower right side is not anchored to the metal backing of the screen anymore. I can push it back in place but it doesn't snap in place. I would really like to get it fixed but not sure how to go about doing that or whether or not it is something I can do myself. It is pretty inconvenient as I have to be very cautious about opening and closing the screen and it is very inconvenient as a college student.

I have a fairly new laptop and the cover is peeling from the casing.  Is this covered by the warranty as I would have thought this should not be happening so soon.  The service tag is CJY4J72 and the laptop is less than a year old.


Thank you

Your images are not linked -- but you should call Dell support to see what they say.  
If it's cosmetic damage, they won't cover it -- if it's a manufacturing defect, they should.

From time to time various programs/applications will freeze-up and/or I will get a "Not Responding" message. Then the screen peels. I have used xp_taskbar repeatedly but it only works for a limited time. Any suggestions? Thanks.

A:Peeling Screen

This could be a heat issue, have you checked to see if you have a build up of dust on the heat sink and fan on the CPU?If this isn't the case, look in the Event Viewer to see what errors appear at the time that you are experiencing these freezes. All events are log with a date and time.Start> right click on My Computer> Manage> Event Viewer. Be sure that you choose System.The error will appear in the far left column and will appear as a red dot with a white X inside. Each of the columns has a title at the top of them, the column that you want is the Event column. When you see an error follow it to the right across the page to the event column, there will be a set of numbers in there, this is the error code. If you right click on the error code a drop menu will appear, click on Properties, another page will open which will contain a description of the error.Please post the error codes and descriptions back in this topic.

Hi Guys

I wondered if anyone knew how to prevent the screen protector on my iPod Touch (4th gen) from peeling off. There is a small part in the bottom left corner that keeps on coming up a bit. I think it is caused by the (rubber-like) iPod Case that I have which sort of pushes on the corner of the screen protector causing it to come up/out. If I remove the case then it is fine, but I need the case to hide all the scratches on the back!

The case is a CAPDASE case which is a bit stretchy and translucent. It protects the back

When I try to "tuck" it under the screen protector it stays fine for a minute or so but then it comes off again

Any ideas. Might glue work? Will it damage the screen

It is only one corner. The rest of the front is perfect

Thanks in advance

EDIT: It is a CAPDASE Soft Jacket 2 XPOSE

That "screen protector" is used during manufacture and shipping of the iPod and you can remove it anytime to solve this problem

So, my son dropped my laptop and the plastic where the hinges attach via screws to the lid's plasic rear cover broke. The screen is fine and the laptop works perfectly but when you open it, the lid is only attached by one screw and it's pretty unstable. I ordered a replacement rear cover for the lid (specifically for the touch screen version) and am having trouble finding specifics on it's replacement alone. Again, I don't need to replace the screen and the hinges themselves are fine - basically I just need to get the cover off, slap the new one on, and screw the hinges into it.  Of course the issue is removing the screen and putting it into the new cover. It appears you slide it off in a downward motion after taking off two small screws at the base - but do I need to glue the new one in? Any specifics would be appreciated! Thanks

Hi Everyone,  I lost the plastic locks for my X230T screen as shown in the pictures. Does anyone know where I can buy and find replacements?  Thanks!

A:X230T lost plastic screen locks

They are a weak point on that model (also X220T).  I have tried using every kind of glue I could think of, but nothing works very well.  The original is pressed in and there is a little rubber pin with a "mushroomed" tip that is forced through a hole that looks too small.  The only choice that works is to find a NEW keyboard bezel, probably directly from Lenovo.  If I remember correctly, X220t and X230t use different keyboard bezels.  There is a notch cut at the top on the X230t to make room for the different power switch on the keyboard.

I purchased a Inspiron 15-547 and now have broken plastic around the right hinge. This is said to be a known issue with this specific laptop yet Dell is telling me I have to pay for the repair? In the advertisement they claim that it was tested for 20,000 openings and closings. Are you kidding me? I haven't even opened and closed it for 10,000 times and it is this bad. SAD! This is not something I expect form a company like Dell.

How it is described to customers:
The best part:
"Call us excessive, but after twisting an Inspiron laptop's base and lid more than 25,000 times, we can assure you the parts inside are well protected."
Excessive with the zeroes in the number of tests maybe! Mine is not the only case where this has happened there are many others with the same complaint. I'm wondering why Dell did not recall this laptop so I would not have purchased it in the first place.

This laptop works WHEN IT WANTS TO EVERY ONCE IN AWHILE, BUT NOT OFTEN.  I turned the laptop on now, and I'm typing on it now, **BUT when it doesn't work, which is most of the time**, it shows a black screen (I see nothing on the screen) even with the power on and constantly restarts on its own. Is this hardware issue a motherboard problem or a screen issue specifically? Specifically, is it the motherboard that needs to be fixed on this Yoga 13 or is it a screen issue? If it's a motherboard issue that needs to be fixed, how much would it cost? Or If it's a screen issue, how much would that cost to fix? Any help on this is much needed!

Hello and thanks for reading,

I have a 2 year old HP pavilion dv6 series laptop running windows 7. Yesterday I turned it on and it started normally but when I tried to browse on Firefox it gave me the blue screen (for the first time ever) and it shut down. Fearing I had a virus I ran it in safe mode and started a scan and began transporting my pictures via Dropbox just in case it died on me. Sure enough a weird error message (couldnt figure out what program made the message pop up) popped up saying I had a bunch of urgent viruses.. I didn't click on it at all and before I couldn't think of what to do the blue screen popped up and it shut down. When I tried to restart it the HP splash sign popped up and the screen flickered black and a blinking cursor started in the upper left corner. So this is where I stand now... Black screen with blinking cursor. Set default setting in BIOS (didn't work) and F8 (safe mode) or F11 (system restore) does nothing... The black screen just stays there. Any ideas? Is it a gonner? I'm hoping to get back on and get my pictures if possible. Help please!

Hi everyone,I have been looking for a part number that will help with my wobbly screen. The problem is with the little plastic part that surrounds the hinges. It is one long, skinny part that attaches to the screen and stretches across the hinges. I attached a picture of what I mean. I also have another pic of how the laptop doesnt close all the way. Sometimes if the screen wobbles too much it wil go into sleep mode. Not a huge problem but hugly annoying.  LCD Assembly 00HM966 has the part on it but I cant find a bill of materials for this part.There are some LCD bezels available, like 04W3903, but that would not work on my machine. I have been plenty online about replacing the hinges but the hinges arent wobbling. I can see that it is the plastic part moving on the hinge.   I am willing to macgyver it if anyone has any ideas.  Thank you in advance!

Hi,

A disclaimer before I proceed. Im not the best with computers or computer terms.
I have a Samsung laptop (not sure of the model), and the screen broke months ago. Since then I've been using an external monitor without any issues until today. When I start up my laptop I can never see anything displayed on the external monitor until the log in screen. The monitor will always go into hibernation mode until the log in screen.

However, today it's taking longer to start up and I cant see what's going on. At first I thought windows was performing a disk scan but i waited over an hour! So that must not be the issue. I want to find a way to display what is happening on the external monitor if possible. I have been endlessly searching all day online for help. I would really appreciate any help/advice.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. If you can give me steps into diagnosing the problem, that'd be great!

I recently did a factory restore on my laptop since it was giving me really bad problems before(BSOD on boot, unable to start in safe mode, etc). I assumed that it was caused by a bad video driver installation. Once I did my factory restore, this problem was solved, but it seems like a new one arose.

In the first few days the laptop was working fine, but I recently realised that if I unplug my AC Adapter, my laptop would work for awhile but will eventually die. The screen would just go black, then I would see weird colors and then it would go black again and I would be forced to hold the power button and restart. The funny thing is, this never happens when I have it plugged in.

I then realised that it happened when I plugged it out and moved it around, so I assumed it had something to do with the wiring inside my laptop. But it seems that isn't the case since even if I move it around while it's plugged in, it doesn't happen. I'm pretty sure it has something to do with my power supply at this point, but I'm not really sure.

If anyone can help, I would really appreciate it!

EDIT: It just happened to me as I tried to access my task manager. I did CTLR+ALT+DEL and my screen went black, and my laptop simply restarted itself.

Hi, I recently let my friend borrow my Lenovo V570 laptop while I was out of town because he wanted to fix the keyboard which did not work at all. The keyboard was removed and reinstalled with a new one but a worse problem was created. The power button cable was removed and the plastic piece that locks it was lost. I cannot afford to pay for computer repair or a new motherboard, I know its still good since the battery light is on and charges when plugged in.

Now I cannot turn on my laptop at all and I need it for school ASAP. I read through the maintenance manual many times for this laptop but it does not say exactly what each one of these inputs are for. So my plan was to remove the plastic lock from the cable for the touchpad. At this point I dont care if the keyboard or touchpad works (I will use USB keyboard and mouse) I just need to be able to power it on and working USB ports.
So I unplugged the plastic lock from the input I believe was the touchpad and tried to install it in the power button cable input since it looks like the same size. Problem is it is very small and difficult to work with and when I tried to install it I slightly bent one of the pins (shown in photos below.

If I carefully straighten out the pin on the cable input and try it again (any tips would be appreciated in doing this) do you think the plastic lock I removed will fit in the power button cable input? Also are these plastic lock pieces hard to find if I need a replacement?

So I was using an external hard drive to transfer some files from my desktop to my laptop. I was transferring files to the external hard drive when it had some sort of error; can't remember specifically what it was. I decided to plug in a laptop charger into the external driver, then plugged the usb back into the drive. I suddenly heard the external hard drive working like crazy, then there was this smell that smelled like paint coming from the external hard drive. Holy crap, did I just fry it? I didn't notice the smell at first. I also can't say that the smell was too foul... Anyway, my computer said that the external hard drive was installed, but I can't seem to find it on My Computer. So I thought, whatever, I have most of the files I needed anyway. I unplugged the usb from the drive and plugged it into the drive on the laptop. Then holy crap, the laptop fan went off like mad, almost 10 times faster then it was going at the moment. The laptop screen went green, then the entire thing turned off. By then I found out that it was a bad idea to plug a laptop charger into an external hard drive, then into a laptop. What the hell was I thinking?
I turned the laptop back on. Okay, the power supply and motherboard is working. The lights turn on when I press the power button, some other light turns on whenever I plugged in a charger for the laptop. Everything seems to be functioning, except that the laptop screen is black and there's nothing I can do to make... Read more

Hello. I purchased a Compaq F572 Notebook with Vista about 3 weeks ago. All of a sudden now, when I turn on the laptop, the welcome screen appears and as soon as the taskbar starts to display, it goes to a black screen. The only way I can get my laptop desktop to show up is to connect a second monitor, with both monitors displaying the desktop. When I disconnect the second monitor and turn the laptop back on, the same thing happens - welcome screen and then black screen. My display settings are set for "mirrored" image. Please help!! Thank you!!!

My vista laptop has been acting unusual for the past week.
Normally after it has goes to sleep, I touch any key and it wakes up.
But now when I touch a key, it wakes up, but the screen stays black. :-(

I can shine a flashlight and see that the icons are vaguely present.
There is a function key to switch the display from external to internal
or both. When I select that key, I will get a regular display for about 3 seconds.
Then I select that key again and same response.
After about 5 or so of these, the screen is normal (until next sleep).
I tried restoring to Jan 13, before the updates and it still has
the problem. I also ran chkdsk and no help.

And when I connect an external monitor, the external monitor only shows my
wallpaper, it has no icons.

Any ideas what this is?

Hi guys,

I have a bit of a problem with my laptop (IBM T41). When i turn it on she boots up fine and gets to the log in screen, i stick my password in and for a couple of minutes its fine but if i move it the screen goes black.
I was told that it might be a bulb that's away in the screen but i don't know how to fix it, is there anyone out there that can tell me how to do it, where to get the components from and if possible post some photos of what to do?

If someone knows that this isn't the problem then please let me know.

Top suspect is the inverter, here's one of many sites that talk about replacing the inverter board. http://www.laptoprepair101.com/

You can find the inverters for your machine many places, I found my last one on eBay.

I keep my Toshiba Satellite laptop on the bed while charging.
Today when I turned on, the power light and hard drive lights were on and green lights blinked. But my screen still shows black. Please help.
 

A:Laptop is on but the screen is black

Can you hear the hard drive start up? Also if you look real close at the screen can you make out anything on the screen? The backlight may have burned out. Also was the computer running while it was charging? I'm guessing no as you said "you turned it on this morning."

Hey everyone. I'm hoping you can help me with this problem.

I have an Asus K55V laptop with Win7 installed. I normally use an external monitor plugged in while i play games. Apparently there's 2 graphic cards in the laptop, an Intel HD4000 and a Nvidia GT630M. I don't know if this is possible, but I tried disabling the Inten HD4000 in device manager so the laptop would use the Nvidia card only. This gave me a problem, and now my laptop screen is totally dead, even after restarting the system several times. This happens with and without the external monitor.

Anyone who can help me?

Which drivers have you updated lately? Have you done a BIOS upgrade? What software have you installed lately? Has your hard drive failed? Have you run a Memtest to insure your RAM is not loose or failing. These are few of the things that can cause this problem. Have you plugged in to a external monitor What happens if you do?
