Loose screen hinges
\015 TOSHIBA Satellite A45 PSA40U-06FV3VSystem Serial Number: Z3024051JUThe hinges have become loose over time. How do I tighten the hinges?\015
You can't. They're worn out and the way they're manufactured doesn't allow for a easy tightening unfortunately. I would pick up a new / used pair from ebay and then just swap them out.
