T460S - replacement H key hinges

Q: T460S - replacement H key hinges

I need a replacement for my H key and hinges for my T460s. The only site that has keys for the T460s is www.quikfixlaptopkeys.com and they seem to be perpetually out of stock of the H key, both back lit and non back lit. Lenovo in their wisdom refuses to sell individual keys and only sells the whole keyboard. I'd be willing to pay good money if someone has trashed their computer for their fully functionl H key hinges, or if someone knows for sure of a place that sells T460s keys. Every other site that I've searched so far only goes as high as 430 or so. Help!!!!

I have a problem on the hinges which caused a fracture on the rear lid and now on the hinges cover, not the front lid cover. The hinges cover has also a strip that looks like plugged in the rear lid and functions as bottom connection with the display. Of course it is also covering the hinges. I found a list of t440 components here: https://download.lenovo.com/parts/ThinkPad/t440_fru_list_20140213.pdfbut I cannot find which model should I refer to buy a new substitute. Can anyone please help me, there?  Partially related to the issue, I have bought a new rear lid model 04X5447 but I have been unlucky and from bad transport, it arrived slightly bended: looks like this: https://imgur.com/a/rIZyCDo you think I can use it a suitable replacement? Thanks in advance for you help

I broke my T460s' QHD non-touch screen (grabbed the laptop by the bezel and cracked the screen, this was never a problem on my older Thinkpads :/), and shopping for a replacement is actually a little tricky. On the back of the screen, I see:VVX14T058J0216023TP/N SD10G56715FRU 00NY406 I went to the pcsupport.lenovo.com website to look for the replacement part numbers, and it says 00NY406 and 00HN877 in the list. However there's a little dropdown on 00NY406 that says "Substitutes (2)", and shows 00HN878 and 00NY413 as well. This is the tricky part: I see in the pictures for the 00HN878, and the stickers actually say 00HM878, and VVX14T058J0016042T. Are all 40 pin connector screens with the same mounting holes compatible? When searching ebay or Amazon or aliexpress the sellers seem to suggest any of the 40 pin connector screens are cross compatible. I'm a little hesitant to buy a screen that I'm not 100% sure will fit. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Hi all, Quick question on battery replacements.. I have a T460s whose second battery recently showed it was having issues (on 46% of max charge available). I thought replacing the battery would be trivial but this is proving an exercise in futility. For reference the laptop type is: 20F9The battery in question is FRU: 01AV406 When I check this battery against the replacements site (https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/partslookup), it indicates that the battery is out of stock. It also indicates that there are a few replacement options, 01AV407, 01AV408, 01AV405. All of which are also not in stock. After chatting with support on this issue, I was advised to call the parts department a partner - Encompass. Unfortunately, their department closes at 3pm PST which is pretty annoying. However when I search for the part (01AV406) on their website (https://lenovo.encompass.com), I'm left with an additional alternative 01AV462 (also out of stock but at least in stock 1/29). My question is, which of these sites to believe or are these all compatible? I find this a little absurd that this information is so unclear and annoying that Lenovo can't keep anything in stock.Double all that since I want to replace my primary battery as well (which will be back in stock on 3/10/19). Insert eye roll here. Any advice anyone can shed here would be apprciated or any other tips for getting these batteries replaced.

Q: Hinges

I've had my HP Envy for two years. I am the sole user of this laptop. The left hinge broke after a few short months. It was stationary -- on a desk and never transported, therefore never dropped and obviously defective. I was told that hinge replacement is not covered under warranty, so I made the decision to tolerate it since I didn't want to be without it for an indefinite period of time and also felt the estimated $250 in repair was unreasonable. A few weeks later, the right hinge broke causing a significant separation in the case. This past weekend, the keyboard began to fail. Some of the letters do not register and have to be copied and pasted (you can appreciate how long it is taking me to write this!). I took it into a repair shop today hoping to have a replacement keyboard installed and was told they would not be able to help me because they felt they would not be able to put it back together as a result of the damage caused from the failing hinges. They felt the best option, all things considered, would be to purchase a wireless keyboard and resign myself to the idea that what I have here is a desktop. HP... take responsibility for these failing hinges without your normal fee. You created a DEFECTIVE product with a substandard design, rendering an otherwise fantastic laptop useless. This is a widespread problem that should not have to be accepted from customers who are investing over $1000 in this product.

Q: Hinges

Looking for answers, I noticed that many are experiencing the same issues with the hinges. mine have never fallen as well. When I called to support they told me that it was going to cost me almost 300 as an estimate. I don't think that's fair considering that is a poor design issue.

A:Hinges

Just to add more information about the problem: Haven't used the laptop in almost a year since the hinges on my HP Envy Touchsmart 15 began to separate the bottom plastic cover of the PC while opening for use. Like I mentioned previously, the laptop has never been dropped.  This issue started up slowly, but since an external monitor was connected to the laptop for some time, I'm not sure exactly when this problem started. As seen, it seems the hinge has "fallen" out of place and attempting to open the laptop separates the bottom black part from the silver colored plastic side cover (vent?). In addition, the hinge itself no longer supports the weight of the laptop screen, and appears loose inside (hinge wiggles back and forth) and does not have a strong fixed hold. See pictures for more information (the small black piece of plastic seen in one of the pics fell out of the laptop while attempting to open a bit for taking better pictures).

I may consider myself as a careful user, however, my S10 developed cracks on both side of the lid near the hinges after 10 months of usage. I bring it down to the local lenovo service centre but was told it's not under warrenty. They said that this is a cosmetic wearing so cannot claim under warranty. They also said that there is no part no. for the lid to be reported as an item under warranty.Is this so? Because I have read about this as a common issue among 1st generation of S10. Thus, the redesign of better hings in S10-2. My warranty is ending soon, is there any hope that I can replace the lid for this?

A:Cracks on lid near hinges

post a pic of the crack, and lets see what it is.... most cracks develop due to overtight hinges and/or manufacturing flaws on the case (i.e. have microscopic cracks or perfect square corners). Usually the tiny microscopic cracks under cyclic stress from opening and closing causes the crack to propagate.  If it is a manufucturing flaws and not due to user abuse, then i think it is only fair that it should be covered under normal warranty.

My name is Albert and I bought an Idea series Z580 during last November (2012). It is really amazing to understand that the guy (Leno shop-thrissur-kerala) actually predicted the first complaint of my laptop. The story is like this - When I received my laptop, I asked him to give me a true answer to my question - 'what complaint should I expect from the laptop (hardware).' He gave me an advice that I should be opening the laptop (I mean, opening the lid/screen part so that the laptop maintains a 'L' shape, to use it) by gently pushing the screen portion, at the middle part of the upper side of the screen(near to camera) away from the mouse pad. Since then I(the only user) have been doing this when ever I open the machine. And have been taking care of it like a baby..!! But Just after 9months the right side (when you face a open laptop) hinge portion started giving some sound and when I examined I could see that the outer covering of the CPU section of the laptop, on the left had side of the hinge attachment, has came out. I am literally heart broken, as I am not a regular user and was taking good care of my machine.

I bought my wife an HP Envy M6 notebook in March 2015. She has the exact same problem that other people have had with their notebook hinges. In her case, both have broken somehow.  Her notebook casing separates from the screen  when opening/closing, and it is hard to keep open unless you push the screen 110 - 120 degrees or so. When the notebook is closed, you can see a big gap between the screen and the casing. At this time, her screen has not suffered, but I experienced something similar myself with an older HP notebook and my screen turned light blue. I would like to avoid hers to get to that point. The warranty on her notebook has expired already, but I would like do something, so that she can continue using her laptop for another couple of years if possible. I think HP should have a plan (repair/replace) for this specific issue, since it seems to be a very common one among HP notebook owners.  This is the 3rd case of a hinge issue with HP notebooks in our household. I have kept getting them because I like their looks and versatility, but I am getting to the point where I might have to switch to a different manufacturer with stronger built machines.  Would appreciate any help... Thank you!

in my lapi lenovo G50 at the hinge the below part and keyboard is seprating litttle bit you can see it into image now how  to solve this problem

A:Re: Cracks on lid near hinges

This isn't a user serviceable part. If it's under warranty it will have to be sent in for repair. More than like the hinge will need to be replaced. You could try and google the G50 to see if there is an alternative.

I am dealing with the hinge issue on the HP envy notebook just like everyone else who bought this poorly designed laptop. Tried to deal with HP for about 3 weeks of phone tag and non-imformative emails just to find out that they dont have the part to fix my computer. HP made  a bad computer and cant get the parts to fix a common issue.

Hello, I bought my Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Yoga (4th gen) 2 week ago from China and laptop is not under warranty.2 days ago, one of the hinges keeping the screen broke (photo). I tried to find replacement parts on the Lenovo website, but can't find the part number for the hinges. I want to purchase hinges in Germany/Europe and replace them by myself, is it possible ?

Hey everyone...I've got an Inspiron N4010 who's screen freezes due to the way the screen is opened. I have to manually move it to a certain spot for it to unfreeze the screen and if I let it go, poof...Frozen. Instead of just trying to randomly replace parts I'd like some advice please.

A:Screen or hinges

Hi RWeldon,It is possible that the wiring harness for the screen has become entangled in the hinge causing a pinch in the wires.  You can re-route the cable into the channel where it belongs to resolve this issue.

Add me to the list of many, many people with broken hinges on this laptop.  What is being done about this?  The lid is barely holding on at this point, and can't be closed at all. And, yes, it is out of warranty.
