lcd screen on Toshiba satellite 2535 won't stay up/open

    Can someone with a 2535 check between their LCD screen and case for a
    ficition type gear or plastic piece?
    I think mine broke off and now the lcd is all floopy (sp?).
    I hate having to put books behind the screen to help it stay up -
    defeats the purpose of a laptop.
    I want to know what the piece looks like and where is was.

    Mine just seems sealed. Nothing is visible.

  3. Most laptop hinges do not have any type of adjustable friction. Most
    likely, from your description, you broke something.

    That's probably true. I have been jamming pieces of paper in the gap
    to hold the panel up. Seems to work but I need new paper every time I
    open it.
    I took the panel off and looked at the hinges, nothing special about
    them, so I think there might have been a piece of plastic pushing
    against the panel from the bottom. I'm going to try to put friction
    in the hinges themselves and see if that works.

  5. Try finding something like a rubber O-ring to put in there.
    You might try an electronics store that specializes in parts that
    people who fix VCR's.
    Might work.......
