Having problems with your Acer Extensa 5620G-832G25Mn Notebook ?

I have an Acer Extensa 5620 with a small lid closing problem

\015 I have an Acer Extensa 5620 with a small physical problem. When I close the lid, the plastic pin doesn't quite press the micro switch to cause it to go to sleep. I think the hinge needs a tiny adjustment - but how do I get at it??? ThanxMartin\015

Answers :

\015\012I have had this problem on several Acer models in the workshop and cured them in slightly different ways.
\015\012
\015\012Method 1
\015\012The first had hinges that felt slightly rough and not smooth operating when closing the lid. This was cured by applying a very short spay of aerosol silicone grease to the hinges and wiping off the excess. It seems that dirt sometimes gets in the hinge and can prevent the hinge from closing properly. It’s a very fine amount to stop the sleep switch from activating.
\015\012
\015\012Method 2
\015\012On the second the case seemed to be square and there were no seeming misalignments with the screen hinges etc. It also moved freely but did appear to be slightly worn so instead of replacing the entire screen surround and with the customers agreement I had to resort to a very small blob of two part epoxy resin on top of the protruding plastic nodule. This was filed, with a needle file, to remove a slight overhang and coloured black. Now no further problems.
\015\012
\015\012Method 3
\015\012The third laptop had the screen removed and the hinges cleaned with isopropyl alcohol and then a smear of aerosol silicone grease applied to the hinges before reassembly.
\015\012
\015\012Method 4
\015\012The fourth was the most expensive option as the screen surround had to be replaced. To do this gently remove the 4 black rubber inserts on the screen surround face and unscrew the 4 exposed screws. Gently lift off the screen surround and replace with the new one. Reinsert the 4 screws and replace the 4 black rubber inserts to hide the screws. Removal of the screen surround also gives access to the hinges.
\015\012
The hinge can't be adjusted in that sense; probably the hinge axis got slightly warped, but there's not much that can be done in that respect (unless it got actually loose, and this does not seem the case).

If the PC is no longer covered by warranty, I'd suggest placing a very small thickener on the lid in the place corresponding to the pin. Just place there a small fleck of rigid adhesive tape. If it's not enough, place a second fleck over the first one to increase thickness.

If it's not enough because the plastic pin doesn't press the internal micro switch even when completely retracted, you may increase the pin's length like this: use a toothpick to deposit a tiny drop of Loctite or hard plastic adhesive (it's important that it becomes rigid after curing) on the very tip of the plastic pin. Depending on the adhesive's robustness, after some minutes you can get another drop on top of the first one. Take care not to use an adhesive that might melt the plastic (modeling adhesive is to be avoided. Loctite is best).

Acer Aspire 3000 notebook: 1) monitor displays horizontal random lines. This can be fixed by clamping the bezel to the lid, at the position of the lid release catch, using a bull-dog (spring) clip.

Battery charger charges the battery only when the computer is switched off and it isn't possible to run the computer using the charger


Monitor: if the inverters were blown, you would be unable to use clamps as a workaround. I suspect a lose or broken contact to the display wafer caused by rough handling of the laptop. This is delicate stuff, you cannot repair without specialized too ... Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook
