Solved!

HP ENVY M7-J120DX Left Hinge Chronic Flaw in design. Help I am falling apart here.

HP Recommended
HP ENVY M7-J120DX
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Noticed flexibility increase at first then the left hinge on closing pop and split the case. I was fortunate to get it back in place and snap it back it but it is tenative at the best. I am not seeing any proactive movement on HP side on this chronic issue. What is up with that. I just bought another HP and even have my HP Pavilion dv4-1435dx sitting next to me. HP has been my choice for laptops over the last 20 years almost. Get off the throne and do something for all of us..... Alternatives are out there with the Thunderbolt coming out on Asus and on Sony's.  So keeping all of the people in this forum who seem to be long term users and customers and not loopy lous looking for a hand out.

I see many different options to this CHRONIC fault that the tension and tork from the Envy and Paililion laptops. Even sending it in for repairs would bring a question mark! See this and many of the innovative fixes are are doing to save the HP Laptop from being thrown aside. As you can see from the amount of queries ofon the problem and the brand most mentioned..... HP When the screws are broken off the base of the case be it one screw or two the options are only various forms of glue ala hot glue, gorilla glue NOT recommended expnsion and mess or HP Weld. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KxHgdN4cL8

I had exactly the same thing happen to me.

My first call to HP for repair guidance led me to a support representative who quoted me a repair quote greater than $300.

In Amazon product reviews for HP laptops I found:

I made quite an effort writing to that email.

HP got back to me to discuss my issue and quoted me a repair price of just over $200 and would discount it to about $120. I didn't bite.

 

I wrote to the email again in a nice way talking about this forum and all the hinge discussions, something about the hinge not being a "sixsigma" design...

 

About a week later another HP representative contacted me and offered a free repair. But only this once the representative warned. When I get the laptop back I am selling it.

Same issue here.  This is the 4th HP laptop my family has that the hinges have broken.  I continue to use HP laptops but am shopping for a replacement now.  HP needs to hire some engineers that can redesign their laptop hinges.  This is a wide spread HP issue that has existed for years and across multiple products.  I am careful with my laptops and this is not from abuse.  My HP laptop is used primarly as a desktop and the lid is opened or closed only a few times per month.
