Replacement of the frame and hinges - HP Pavilion dm4 laptop

I have a HP Pavilion dm4 laptop of 2.5 years. The first hinged on both sides broke that makes it harder for the laptop to close properly and now the frame is breaking apart. Is there a way I can get/buy replacements before other parts are screwed up.

Thank you


Yes, I also have this problem (dm4-1050ea).

It all started on February 2015, when my aunt noticedv that my laptop was nt close properly.  It could be be made to do by pressing half upper (screen cut) to the front to the rear of the closure.

The hinges then becomes deective that the screen don't would not SOUPLESE nd would not sit just to the place (angle) you open to.

Following the hinges too stiff beame to exploit, came shortly after the left of the screen/lid and the window broke near the LH hinge (rather than though the bezel as shown in the image above). Then the right hinge broke off, then the screen become deective (mainly a band along the LHS - worked with detached hinges OK))

So, I find myself with computer work, not 100% functional & broken and needs special care to use. the screen does not work in all areas (a replacement looks like £30-$50), with the virtually hanging screen, need to rplace lying hinges (£10-$15) and also nees any other bits (?) and the knowledge to fix it.  HP say they can't stand any more of this model and have no theparts (from end of 2015).

It may be beyond the capacity of an almighty ccompany such as HP to find parts, but it does not seem beyond the my ability to get parts of - maybe-2nd hand - other HP broke! - But what I lak is kno detailed ho a skill to perform any repair.


I hope some find these useful - they're just a small selection of procedures available for repair (probably none authorized by HP that want you to throw in and buy a new model idir HP)

  • I have a hp pavilion dv6 with factory warranty. It covers replacement of the battery and the keyboard?


    I have a HP Pavilion dv6, who currently holds the factory warranty. I was wondering if she covered with a replacement keyboard, because some of the keys that I use rarely become loose, as the right alt key. I was also wondering if she covered with a battery replacement, because it is the life is much shorter than he was when this laptop was new.

    Oh, and if it does not cover the replacements for the two parties, how could I do to obtain replacements?

    Thank you


    OK, you're in good shape, for the battery, so that we will send it to you free of charge if under warranty - ask that if they send the keyboard as well, some models are replaceable by the end-user.

  • I took a sim card to an iPhone and place in another.  What should I do next to the phone with the sim card replaced?  The screen and apps are from the old phone...

    Hi, my wife 4S iPhone died and I I replaced his Sim Card with my old s 4 card as I have updated.  She is still decide to upgrade, but needs a phone so replace the sim card seemed like a good thing to do.  So now his phone has all my contacts, applications etc on it and none of his own.  What is the next step to have his stuff on his phone?  Is this to connect to its MacBook or reset the phone and connect.

    Thank you.

    Has a backup via iTunes or iCloud of his old phone before he died? If so, what follows has instructions. Transfer the contents of an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to a new device - Apple Support

    Note that since the phone is already implemented (i.e., no news, the first step will be to follow the instructions below to the bottom of this link.

    To transfer a backup on a device, you have already configured, you need to clear the device: tap Settings > General > reset > erase all content and settings. This erases all the data that is currently on your device. After you erased, your device will restart and you will see the screen of 'Hello '. Now, you can transfer a backup of your device.

    My 7520 gives me a message that says: "there is a problem with the printer or ink system. Turn the printer off, then on. If the problem persists, contact HP. »

    It was printing fine, but then it looked like it was getting low on ink. Black began to turn gray and striated. I replaced all ink cartridges. NOTE: I ALWAYS use cartridges HP, new out of the box. I followed your instructions step by step on the site, but it seems to be moot, since I tried everything. I will be so angry if I spent $ 70 on new HP to put in this printer ink and she took a dive. Please suggest solutions. I really should get this impression, am on a deadline.

    I work with a MAC OSX El Capitan system


    I suggest remove you the printer cartridges

    Turn on the printer without cartridge. It should start and see the lack of ink.

    now, first install black and see another error.

    If this isn't the case, restart the printer and do the same for the rest of the inks

  • Pavilion dv7 WC159EA #ABU: replacement of the network adapter on HP Pavilion dv7-3111ea

    Can you tell me what is the best card available and compatible network for my laptop? I'm looking to upgrade, for better performance and speed overall, which is currently averaging around 35Mbps on speedtest on a ~ 100 Mbps Broadband fiber optic (Virgin UK).

    Here's what he said:

    Wireless options integrated wireless LAN (WLAN) using the wireless module:
    Module of Half-Mini Card WLAN 802.11a/b/g ■ Intel 5100
    Module ■ 4322 Broadcom 802.11a/b/g/n WLAN
    Module ■ Broadcom 802.11a/b/g WLAN

    If you can find a half-height intel 5300 for HP I would try that but also look at the 4322 broadcome which would indicate that one is dual band of its identifier. But my money first of all find a low-profile 5300 indicating he works for hp then if it does not move from Broadcom. But that is you can risk losing money if the 5300 does not work. That's what I'd do, but does not mean that you should go this route.

  • A small question about the replacement of the DVD in a HP Pavilion dv6 - 2057cl

    I need to replace the DVD drive in this dv6, and I wonder if there is room for manoeuvre with regard to the replacement drive.  Can I use another drive to disc HP with a similar model # or am I limited on drive 'identical '?

    Some quick info follows:

    OS = Windows 7 home premieum (32 bit)

    The disk removed from the laptop:

    DVD Super Multi writer

    MODEL: GT20L

    FW: DC05

    HW: A2

    TYPE: AMCK702

    CT: 7AXVK012GY3NRY

    HP mPC REF: 461646-6 c 2

    {Removed privacy}


    I found a replacement with the same 'model' and even 'HP mPC PN' but it was made in 2009, and I don't know whether or not the implementation of the SATA connection on the rear of the car fits.

    Any help is very appreciated!

    Thank you


    It seems that the reference is the same. As long as the part number is the same, it is essentially the same part and should work without any problems. The only time where this part can fail if the part number is different. If a part is different from another part (software, hardware, etc.), it will have a different reference number. Also long that 461646-6 c 2 is identical on both, there is no problem with the disk replacement.

  • Animate a line - going through the frame and turning 90 degrees


    I would like to animate a line coming from the top of the image down and half, I want that he turn 90 degrees and continue on the left to the right side of the frame. A good example of this is here: last week tonight - and now this compilation - YouTube

    My first attempt: make a shape layer, has drawn a line with the pen tool and added the paths of toppings. I tried to add the effect in the turn of 90 degrees, but the effect does not appear convincing fluid for me.

    I think the problem is that rotation, the front point of the line for moving, but really, this must remain in the same position (let's say the Center) and the rest of the line must turn so to speak.

    So second attempt: I tried to animate the shape-path this kind of work, but I always end up accidentally change in appearance (thickness) of the line (if this is the way to achieve this effect, I'm sure I can solve this problem although). Also, this means I have to animate the movement towards the front of the line vs. just using the trim road.

    What I was asking: is there a simpler way to do it? I want to seek to convince, i.e. have the line moving fluidly on the screen.

    Thank you!

    I use CS6.

    I would forget shape layers, and I would use the traces of mask on solids.  You can then use wither STROKE or Write-On effects to make the lines

    Hi Samuel,.

    You get an error with the message?

    Genuine Windows is a recurring process that checks your product key to ensure that it is not blocked or used on a different material that you were using when you activated Windows. If the product key is not genuine, it is likely that the product key is used on another computer or is a counterfeit.

    Real control, or the validation is done when your computer tries to download optional updates from Microsoft. For example, when your computer downloads updates, Windows checks to see if your product key is valid. If this is the case, Windows on your computer is genuine, and you are eligible to receive updates from Microsoft. If this is not the case, your computer is running non-genuine Windows.

    Take a look at this Microsoft KB article if you get the error code 0 x 80070005.

    Windows 7 displays "Windows is not genuine".

  • CS4 - resizing the frame and content in "width" transform range...

    We must picture resizing placed, but the framework and the content at the same time with writing accurate dimension in "width" transform range. Problem is that this single image is resized. If we choose the photo with the direct Selection tool, only the content is scaled.

    Write your dimension to the percentage field (the one with the number 100% all the time) and press ENTER. Don't forget not to put inches or mm with your numbers... otherwise indesign thinks you want to use percentages. Close the chain icon if you want to limit the proportions.
