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.
Disassembling the screen frame revealed the damaged screen cable. It seems like the bent caused damaged wires within. These screen cables have between 10-20 lines inside responsible for video transfer to the LCD panel.
We took the hinge out and the damaged hinge support revealed itself. As seen, the broken bits are where the nuts were holding the hinge.

Repaired, not Replaced!
We are committed to reducing e-waste in Australia. How we do it is by educating our customers on the repairability and longevity of their devices, as well as providing affordable Laptop Repairs here in Adelaide.
Although our best intentions and hard work, this is not an easy task. Customers must accept that cost of high-quality electronic repairs, is between a third and half of the price of a new device. However, with the current trend of planned obsolescence in electronic design, we see more and more Laptops having shorter lifespans. To tackle that, while we do our repairs we target common planned obsolescence engineering design mistakes to ensure we extend the life expectancy of the Laptops we repair. Check some of our Laptop Repair Cases to get an idea of the process.
That said, if we buy a new one or write it off via insurance, it does not guarantee that the new one will not meet the same fate as the older one pretty soon.
As matter of fact, quite often we see accidents reoccurring within less than 2-year gaps. If we can save 1000$ or even 500$ today by repairing our faulty Laptop is great. That’s an extra half Laptop cost ready to be spent on another one when the time comes or our need for performance increases.
When that time comes is up to us to buy a new one or keep pushing the one we have, but delaying it by a year or three is always a good starting point and saves another abandoned Laptop from polluting our one and only Planet.
