Solved!

Broken Hinge with no repair options

HP ENVY Sleekbook 6t-1100
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have had my sleekbook for over a a year now, and yesterday when I went to open the laptop the right hinge snapped off the screen and the bezel popped out. I have alway been carefull with this laptop, and never dropped it. I have looked online for a solution that I could purchase, and all i am seeing is drilling holes in the back and putting on nuts. I dont want to do that. Please help!!!

 

 

Thanks in advance for any help!

I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details).

Broken Hinge with no repair options

See, Hinges are very delicate.. if you have practical knowledge about repairing then go for this self-repair stuff...first gather some tools then you can follow this guide, i have tried this and it works perfectly.

 

THINGS YOU’LL NEED

Flat-head screwdriver

Phillips-head screwdriver

Rubber cement

 

STEP 1

Purchase replacement parts on sites like amazon etc ,

 

STEP 2

Before you start to dissassemble the laptop you must remember to power it off, remove the power cable and battery from your laptop. Remove the hard drive and memory sticks from your laptop as well.

 

STEP 3

Remove any screws on the bottom of your laptop that hold the keyboard to the laptop base. Some laptops do not have a keyboard screwed in. Examine your laptop carefully. If in doubt, remove all screws located on the bottom and sides of the laptop. Keep track of all of your screws, and draw a quick diagram of where each one goes to make reassembly easier.

STEP 4

Use a flathead screwdriver to carefully pry up and remove the keyboard bezel. The bezel is located along the top of the keyboard on most laptops. Remove the keyboard, and disconnect it from the motherboard.

 

STEP 5

Remove the hinge covers, if any, and disconnect any cables connecting the LCD display to the motherboard.

STEP 6

Remove any screws connecting the display to the laptop base. Carefully pull the display away from the laptop base.

 

STEP 7

Remove any screws connecting the two halves of the display assembly together. Use your fingers to carefully pry the front bezel away from the LCD display cover. Carefully remove the LCD display from the cover. The LCD display probably will be connected to a video cable. Unplug the video cable before removing the screen.
