Acer Chromebook Repair broken hinge support

Acer Chromebook Repair broken hinge is a common repair we get on most laptops.

Laptop Hinges are susceptible to dust and fluff which collects and tightens the mechanism, causing hinge support to be under enormous pressure. This pressure causes hinge supporting plastics to snap and break.

If we check the damage closely, we can see how the hinge has protruded through the screen assembly and damaged the screen cable. This caused the Acer Chromebook to show a black screen.

Apart than the broken hinge, it was clear that there is also an issue with the screen cable. When we checked closely, we could say that it must be squashed between the covers and damaged. Thus resulting in black screen problems on this Acer Chromebook.

Acer Chromebook Repair Process

We took the screen assembly apart to check the damage and repair needed.
