My laptop Inspiron 5000 made cracking sounds when open and closed normally, and then the hinge popped out when I opened it. I have never dropped it. Many other people have had this issue, so it is product defect that Dell should have taken care of. I'm now going through BBB to see if they can get it fixed because this is not my fault.

Hi,  I've had issues with creaking noises from the the left hinge on my HP ENVY 17 Notebook PC machine and having opened the screen gently as I always do today, the hinge seems to be broken and plastic screw casing has fallen out.  I've checked the forums and this has been a defect issue for a lot of the machines and I'm having the exact same problem with overheating too. (I thought this was a genuine issue with most HP's as per the customer rep who sold me the laptop).  Sometimes the keyboard becomes way too hot in the top left corner to type. Please can someone inform me what I need to do. The laptop is around 18 months old. I've enclosed an image of the problem.

Hinge on my Spectre XT laptop is separating.  The screen itself is intact.  However, the computer sleeps as the screen is moved.  I am unable to close the laptop screen without worrying that the screen will completely separate.  The damage occured as the screen was being closed. I do not believe the laptop is under warranty, however this defect seems to be a common problem.  Is there anyone that can assist or suggest someone to assist with this matter?

Hi everyone.  I bought a 2018 YOGA 730 15.6" 2 weeks ago and I've been enjoying this laptop so far w/o any problem. But there is one little thing that's kind of bothering me. The right hinge seems to miss a connection!  The left hinge has a wire or some sort of connection in both upper and lower part of the hinge, while the right hinge doesn't have anything that connects the upper part. I hope you can see and understand what I mean from below photos. There is a noticeable gap in the red circle at the right hinge.  So far I haven't found any functional error even though it looks a bit insecure since the hinge connection isn't symmetrical. I somehow feel like it should be. So... could this be a defect? Or is it just how it's designed? I'd really appreciate it if some could clarify this for me. I seriously hope this is not a defect that will cause the hinge to fall apart with months of use.  Thank you!!

I purchased a Lenovo 730 less then a month ago. I recently noticed the right hinge is missing a connector to the screen itself. This causes the hinge to look slanted and frankly it is an accident waiting to happen. I have read about other people's problems with this specific hinge and it clearly is a manufacturing defect. The problem is that I bought this computer while on vacation, and I've been told the only way to fix this problem is to return the laptop to where I bought it, or to send it to Lenovo for repairs, which I must pay for. I cannot return to where I bought it and I do not want to spend more money on this problem that was no fault of my own. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know what I can do about this.

Seems there are some design issues and manufacturing defect with the way Lenovo Egde 2-in 1 touch screen works. The right hinge somehow has come loose and then it forces the screens to separate. When you close the laptop it seems to aggravate the situation.  I have certainly not dropped it and mishandled it. Searching on the internet it seems to a very common issue. Wondering how should I go about getting this fixed. Does anybody have some fix and something? is there a recall? Its a fairly new laptop with good specs. See attached pictures.everything still worksClosing it seems to split the screenskeep the laptop open at all time to prevent it from falling apart.The laptop screen is seperating due to hinge issue.

A couple of years ago I bought a brand new y50-70 laptop. Since the first start I noticed problems with the battery, it lasted for only 20-30 min at best.Right after buying the laptop I got into several projects and changed the shdd for an ssd and also doubled the RAM (of course, invaliding my warranty) due to the laptop being very slow. I overlooked the battery issue until today when I decided to buy a new one so I could get more mobile with my laptop.Before doing that I had a hunch and opened up the battery that came with the laptop only to find that the soldering between the battery leads and controller has failed. This must have been like this since the day I bought it. I will try to resolder the connection and let you know the outcome, but this is not normal. QC should have noticed this issue right away. The controller pads have no trace of soldering on them.

Hello!After two months of using my Yoga 730-15" left fan starts making strange sounds (crackle as if something is touching the fan when working).I have opened the cover and made sure nothing got into fans. But the sound is remaining. I believe this is a factory defect, since there was no damage. So i need help to find new left fan for my Yoga 730-15. Could you tell where i can buy it? Unfortunately, I could not find any offers and I am very upset .. P.S. I am in Russia and there are difficulties with warranty service, it is likely that they will harm the equipment more than it will be repaired. Therefore, I would like to replace the fan by myself.

Hi all, since April, 2018 I have a T580. Good Notebook, but unfortunatley, I have a defect on the storage for the second time. The first time, the system did not resume from hibernate anymore and started to crash with a blue screen during usage. When starting the hardware scan on startup by hittin F10 key, the utility said, that reading from the SSD failed. Hence, the Lenovo contractor changed the SSD, but back in my office, same problems occured. Hence, the mainboard was replaced. So the T580 worked fine for two month, but now is shows the same problems again.The contractor who will repair the T580 said, that unfortunatley, he observed, that this error seems to occur often on the T580 and P52. So I want to ask if Lenovo is aware of the problem, and if they are aware, if they already have a strategy, to get Mainboards, SSDs, or controller board without this defect from the supplier. Best regards, Steve

It is bad enough that Dell makes a product with a defect affecting many of their unuts (bad hinge design/manufacture), but then makes a statement that part is specifically not covered under any of their warranties.

Hello everyone.

My wife's laptop display recently went black. The display is completely dead, so its probably not the backlighting.
The computer IS running (fan working, LED's on) and an external monitor shows no picture (so probably a video card failure?)

Question1: Any ideas what else could be the problem?

Question2: How do I find out (before dismantling the laptop) whether I can exchange the video card and if yes, where can I buy these?

Thanks for any answers in advance.
 

A:Laptop Display: Defect, Black

What is the exact make/model of the laptop. Most laptops do not have easily replaceable video cards. Most require an entire motherboard swap since everything is so tightly integrated.

You might be able to Google your make/model and see if you can come up with any info on how the video card is layed out.

The warranty covers repair of manufacturing defects. They are under no obligation to provide you with a new machine and without actually seeing the problem I have not seen anything that leads me to believe it cannot be repaired and a replacement is really necessary.

Some time ago hinge in my laptop started to break, so I used an adhesive tape to hold it. It was fine, but it started to fracture. I thoughtlessly cut tape to see what is going on and accidentally broke it even more. Then I closed the lid, oppened again and  my screen has stopped working. I have tried to don't damage the wires inside while oppening, so I think this is caused because of the broken detector of position of the lid. The hinge can not even raise the screen. Now I am going to buy new hinge and replace it, but I don't know how to replace it without dealing even more damage, fix the wires are damaged and where I can find a cheap one. Using this laptop through HDMI is really unconfortable, so I want to fix it.

Hi I have a question about the hinges on my Lenovo Z51-70 I brought the product new from an online retailer end of Nov 2015 and had a problem with the hinges making a noise (creaking/cracking) noise from the start, As it was close to xmas and I thought it was just a teething issue.  IE they had been over tightened and would loosen up overtime I left it till end of December. I have since been told that hinges are not covered as they are cosmetic items and because they have damage the plastic casing internally I will have to pay for this. There was another issue with the lenovo (the harddrive failed), but have been told they will fix this free of charge. The problem I have is that I have legal rights as a consumer and the item was not fit for purpose on delivery. So how do I get to this fixed free of charge as this damagewasnt done by my mis-use and the item is under 6 months old and would be cover by the Sales of Goods Act. IE faulty when brought Please help as I need to know if the hinges were too tight at the manufacturing stage and when I recieved the laptop it would cause unnecessary wear and tear (durability) on the plastic casing causing it to become damaged.

Recently I have noticed that the hinge of my Y50-70 is slowly opening. Pictures here.  It is a known issue of this model that the left hinge is plauged by a design flaw, which will sooner or later cause the screen to crack/whole hinge area to break/whole screen to dangle on its right hinge only. I seek advice on how to loosen the left hinge nut, as I have read that this would fix the problem I'm facing. Would this prevent any future damage to the laptop caused by the hinge? Could anyone post a step-by-step video detailing how I should loosen this hinge nut and also how to put the laptop back together after that? Please and thank you! PS: I have done a lot of research online but have come up inconclusive on whether loosening the left hinge nut is effective in preventing any future damage. I also failed to find a clear video detailing how to do this. I have never in my life taken apart a laptop.

I bought the laptop in April 2016. Started having issues closing the laptop (made grating noise and felt like something inside was crunching) and screen around the hinge sortof came off around March 2017. Was in middle of submitting my PhD thesis so couldn't take it to repair rightaway. A week later, the plastic part outside the hinge broke off and hinge completely came off. Took it to JB HI-Fi on 14th April 2017 and they sent pictures to Lenovo. There are no signs of external damage, laptop has been used and taken care of properly and Lenovo refuses to cover it under warranty. Absolutely unacapptable!! Called Lenovo customer support on 5th May, technician asked for addtional photos of the hinge from all angles to have another assessment. Currently awaiting a call back from that assessment. Looked at other blogs and saw other people having same issues with Lenovo IDeapad 100. Will be reporting the issue to consumer protection affairs as clearly not an issue associated with mishandling or external damage. So frustrating that less than a year and have to deal with this.

Hello, I bought my U530 Touch from Vatan Computer in Turkey, on November 2014. Let me first make clear that the law states the standard warranty period as 2 years in Turkey, so my laptop is still under warranty.  What happened to maybe hundreds of people on this forum happened to me, too. One day, a little over a month ago, when I was opening the lid of my laptop, I felt a resistance and the plastic casing on the left hinge cracked slightly as I tried to open my computer. But when it was fully open, the plastic was cracked and would not get back into its original position and it was clear that closing the lid was not an option anymore. I could see the faulty hinge and some cables from the opening between the screen and the cracked plastic. Thankfully, my screen didn't crack like so many users' here and I was able to use my laptop as a desktop for a few weeks until I could take it back to Vatan Computer, lid open, so that they could send it to service.  I received a message 6 days later stating that I had to pay the quarter of what I had payed for my computer (1000 USD) in order to get it fixed because it was "due to user error". Talking to Vatan computer or technical service on the phone was useless. I tried to explain to them that I take very good care of my computer, I have not dropped it, they cannot find any indication of misuse on the machine, but they wouldn't even listen to me.

Hi YOGESHWARD,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
It would be best to call in technical support as they would be able to approximate repair duration and options available for your machine.
 
This would depend on the available service center in your location as generally standard time is 3-5 business days from the time it was received in the repair centers. This again varies with the location and service center.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.

I bought a Lenovo Yoga 730 15" Laptop a couple months ago. I have never misused or mishandled it but tonight when switching from tablet mode to regular mode, there was a problem with the right hinge. Part of the right hinge popped off and now it seems that the screen (the glass part) is coming apart from the back of the laptop, especially when closing the computer. I don't know what to do as I am worried that further damage may occur to the computer/screen and this is a great concern as I have had it for such a short period of time. I am unsure as to what caused it to break as I was handling it quite normally but I think there may have been a problem with the hinge when it was manufactured as it was a little loose before it popped off. Thank you in advance for any help.

Bought my lenovo yoga 720 13inch from my dads friend about 6 months ago. He used the laptop for a few months and left it with my dad when he left the country. I used the laptop for a while just to check it out and fell in love with it. So i asked my dad if he could buy it from him, he agreed but his friend sold it barely below the original price as it was'nt used much. 6 months in, i'm enjoying everything about this laptop and suddenly the right hinge breaks and cracks half of the screen. I was absolutely devastated as i had no warranty and repairing it would be expensive. With much effort i convinced my dad to send it for repairs and was able to use for another month before it broke again. Money gone down the drain. After a bit of research i found out that many people had the same problem, i just feel so cheated. I'm about to go into university with no laptop and i'm doing an IT degree. My dad won't fund me as he's already paid so much for the laptop, I might have to start part time work now just to get money for a new laptop. No words can explain how dissapointed i am at lenovo as this isn't a problem caused by the customer, rather a fault with the companies engineering (you can't tell me thousands of people who've experienced the same problem are the cause of it). It's a shame because I loved everything about this laptop and believed it was worth every penny. I feel worse for my dad who has to see his hard earned money go down the drain. heres a pic of the b... Read more

I need help with my Lenovo Edge2. I went to close it the other day and the screen would not move any further, backwards or frontwards. The hinge seems to be slightly crooked now, and when I do try to open/close the lid... it splits away from the actual glass screen. It's currently sitting in a 90* angle because it won't move either way now. I can't open or close it at all. Not exactly sure what happened. I am very careful with all of my electronics and have not dropped it and always keep it in a padded laptop bag when not in use.

I bought a lenovo Yoga730 13IKB on December 28, 2018. However I had a lot of problems with this laptop. Firstly I had some kind of a hinge problem (i'm gonna share some photos) and also I had wifi problems. Because of that I went to lenovo technical service (2 times).Firstly, they changed the hinge but the wifi problem kept going because of that I didn't get back the laptop. Then , they said to me we are going to change the wifi module. After the second technical service experience , I got the laptop and I tested it there(in the lenovo technical service). There were still hinge problems and i talked to the technical personel. He told me 'Lenovo can not help you and if you want , you can go to the consumer arbitration committee(in Turkey)'. Before going to the consumer arbitration committee , I just wanted to share this experience because it was the worst experience I've ever had and my problems couldn't be solved. Lenovo was a pretty reliable company for me. However , I could not figure it out and that's why I'm here.

A:Lenovo u530 right side hinge broken

If the touchscreen isn't broken and it's only the plastic attached to the hinge you can carefully drill through the top cover and put a thin bolt or screw.
 
The plastic didn't fit back on so I trimmed it.  It'll void the warranty, but what good is a warranty if no one will honor it?

The plastic piece in the middle broke off and i cant put it back on. I did some googling and found that this is a freaking common problem with Lenovo. I will be talking to my lawyer asap to file a law suit because this is a manufacturer defect. Not only did Lenovo service not help, I had to escale the case 3 times because the first 2 times were escalated ''wrong'' by their employees. In the mean time i need my laptop for College and it doesnt feel freakin good to open up a cracking laptop everytime im in class with a missing middle cover. I checked every video but none are clear and need help to fix this issue.
