Toshiba hinge replacement – broken hinges – screen image flickering

Before: Customer came with toshiba laptop with a very wobbly lid, and complaints of the screen flickering at times. Upon further inspection, we discovered the internal hinges that hold the lid, screen and bezel to the chassis had snapped and broken, as can be seen in the images below. This had also caused the flex cable (connecting the screen to the motherboard) to come loose, causing the screen flicker. After: Hinges were replaced with new ones, a bit of a cleanup inside and with repair and now it’s nice and everything is hunky-dory again. The lid holds firmly and the screen no longer flickers, and the customer is very happy
