Dell Inspiron 7000 broken Hinge Repair

A Dell Inspiron 7000 with a broken hinge was recently brought to our Adelaide ITSolve workshop for a Laptop Hinge Repair.

It’s crucial to address a separating hinge on Dell Inspiron laptops as soon as possible. Mainly because if left unrepaired, the pressure may break the screen. Separating hinge can push the screen out and cause it to crack. If the screen cracks, it could add an additional cost of up to $600 to the laptop hinge repair cost.

Reason for Dell Inspiron Hinge Failure

The hinge breaking and needing Dell Inspiron Hinge Repair is not unique to Dell laptops.

Laptops may feel sturdy due to the aluminium casing. However, industrial glue glues the hinge support onto the aluminium back cover.

Within two years of usage, the hinges may get clogged up with dust. Dust can seize hinges up and cause strain. This strain gets transferred from the metal hinge to the weaker plastic hinge support.

Instead of replacing the back cover with a new one. We prefer to repair the broken hinge support, which may fail again within two years when the hinges seize up.

A reliable way to Repair Dell’s faulty Hinge

Our preferred method is to create a metal-to-metal connection. This connection holds the hinge to the back cover, bypassing the fragile plastic support altogether.

Running aluminium rivets through the back cover and hinges is a more reliable way of repairing the hinge of these Dell Inspiron laptops. Ensuring that we skip the glued hinge support altogether by sandwiching the hinge and back cover together is the most resilient way.

To ensure the longevity of the hinge repair, we clean and oil the hinges, combined with stronger hinge support attached to the back cover.

This results in extremely durable Dell Hinge Repair that can last years without straining any weakened glued parts. We also repaired the right hinge to prevent any future breakdown of the hinge support.

It’s not Dell Inspiron laptops’ design fault but planned obsolescence on every model laptop out there. Check HP Envy with separating left hinge support we published recently.

They are designed to fail; if not serviced annually, we see these hinges barely lasting two years.

By repairing the hinge instead of replacing the back cover, we ensure a more reliable and resilient process that can greatly increase the life expectancy of the Dell Inspiron 7000.
