Left Hinge of an HP Envy 17 Notebook "Popping" Bottom Cover

I have exact the same problem.

 

The only anwser that I have from HP is that my warranty is over and I need to pay to fix it.

 

This is clearly a design flaw, because everyone with this HP Envy Models is having this problem, but the solution can be costly.... :Crying:

Left Hinge of an HP Envy 17 Notebook "Popping" Bottom Cover

Hello, I've got an Hp Envy touchsmart 17 with the same hinge issue reported. It is now on both hinges and the case has a gap on both sides. What is the fix for this? I have tried to price it being fixed, and most places want to charge $200 or more. I see this is a persistent issue with this model, does HP take responsibility for this flaw and fix it or is this under recall? A quick response would be appreciated.

FYI

HP repaired my machine because I have an extended care package, purchased at the same time I ordered the laptop. picked up from home and returned three days later.

 

Actions Performed:-

Replaced TOP COVER/Replaced FAN/Replaced ASSY BASE ENCLOSURE.

 

Comments:-

Top cover, base enclosure and fan replaced for damaged hinge screw boss.

 

I hope this is of some help, even if it's just what parts you will need to repair.

 

Nick

Guys,

They are not gonna accept it as design flaw or do a recall.

The cust service is responsive though.

Pay for repairs and sell it. That's the best I can suggest.

Even if under warranty,get it fixed and then...

I went thru same process,fixed  and bbbbye bbyee

Count me in...  The left hinge is so tight that the screw broke the fitting.  Is there any help out there?
