Was du brauchst

  1. MacBook Pro (15 Zoll, Mitte 2015, Retina Display) Displayeinheit austauschen, Unteres Gehäuse: Schritt 1, Bild 1 von 1
    • Entferne die folgenden P5 Pentalobe Schrauben, mit denen das untere Gehäuseteil am MacBook Pro befestigt ist:

    • Acht 3,1 mm

    • Zwei 2,3 mm

    The number of screws listed here is wrong on my model. I had four of the smaller size.

    Just to add to my comment above (I can't edit it because it's anonymous), my MacBook Pro is a mid-2015 15in model 2.8GHz (A1398; EMC2881). For the bottom case it uses six 3.1mm screws, and four 2.3mm screws at the clutch/hinge side of the MacBook Pro. I tried using a 3.1mm screw at the clutch/hinge end, as described in the main article, and they don't fit. It has to be four 2.3mm screws.

    The instructions below have you basically taking ALL of the guts out of case. I’ve been doing my own apple repairs since before ifixit was a thing and this one is a handful. My battery was swelling and I wanted to remove it before it burst or bent the case so I took it out without having a replacement and it occurs to me that aside from using the solvent (liquid) to remove the adhesive, you could probably do this only taking the trackpad ribbon out. I have mine reassembled now and will research the best battery to buy but I think installation will take about 5 minutes. See if you can slip a plastic gift card under the battery and wag/saw the adhesive out without the solvent before you go through all of this. It might work. Note, don’t bend or put too much stress on the battery and certainly don’t puncture it…

    Battery Recall for 15-inch MacBook Pro Retina mid-2015. Check Apple’s site for recalls, and put in your serial number. They replaced my swelling battery for free, regardless of warranty.

    As we are only replacing the battery, you can safely skip steps 6-26 and 28-48, no need to disassemble the computer to pull out the battery. Use nail polisher remover I was able to pull a super bloated battery out, without disassembling my MacBook.

    I’m having a problem trying to get the screws off. I have a set of pentalobe screwdriver set. I found one screwdriver that fits perfectly on one set of screws, but I am unable to unscrew it. I tried using some force pushing the screwdriver into the screw, but nothing happens. Any suggestions?

    henry_k_wong - Antwort

    All the screws on mine are the same length for some reason.

    ccfman2004 - Antwort

    I would recommend the first step is: Run the battery down to ZERO before doing any next step. This reduces risk to you, people nearby, to the MBP and greatly reduces the risk of fire. Step 2 should be: Double-check that the battery is at zero.

    I like others listed below and on YouTube, disagree with these full tear down 70+ steps being the only focus. I get that I have to be careful not to get the acetone solvent near the speakers. I skipped 25+ steps by: tilting the MBP away from the speakers and using very little acetone solvent. More pressure with the plastic cards and only a few drops of solvent. While giving the full set of instructions is fine it should be very clear that you can (at the user’s own risk) do this.

    Kenneth Schleede - Antwort

    As above—I consider full disassembly to be far riskier to fragile cables and connectors than the risk for solvent spillage. I did steps 1-5 and 46-74. No issues. I HIGHLY recommend the iFixit magnetic Project Mat. It’s a white marker board surface gridded into squares and invaluable for labeling part sizes/steps in disassembly.

    philtrit - Antwort

    As above too. I benefitted from the advice. From step 51 onwards, I found a easier way using tip from China battery seller. Use a 2” width plastic scraper/plastic paint scraper to poke under the battery. Use moderate strength to poke and avoid rough handling of the battery so as not to puncture it. There is no need to pry the battery to avoid stressing it, just use a firm poking action under the battery and the double sided tape adhesive will yield. After 5 min of such poking, the entire battery pack can be removed without the hassle of pouring the adhesive remover from step 51 onwards. Get a scraper with a stronger handle so that it is more comfortable to poke.

    Heads up as you go…we (husband/wife team) had a notebook that when screws/covers were removed, we marked the step # and actually taped the screws into the notebook noted by the step number. This was very helpful on reassembly and we knew we would be using the exact screw into the original screw hole.

    Ann Brainard - Antwort

    After replacing the batteries myself, I wouldn’t even consider doing it again. Not that it’s difficult to do—that’s not the issue. The issue is aftermarket batteries. I’ve been using notebooks for well over 30 years, and never had satisfaction with aftermarket batteries.

    Modern lithium batteries are an amazing technological feat, but a dangerous one. So even putting aside that I’ve never found any aftermarket batteries with quality anywhere near original, I learned “cheap” aftermarket lithium batteries are downright dangerous.

    After doing research into what’s involved with manufacturing lithium batteries, I know there are so many corners to cut, you’ll end up with junk regardless of what you pay.

    A week after replacing my batteries with those from iFixit, they showed clear signs of failure. Thank goodness iFixit refunded my money.

    After having Apple replace my batteries, everything is back to like-new. For my $199, I got not only excellent batteries, but a new keyboard and trackpad as well. That’s it’s done!!!

    AnnoniMoose - Antwort

    I found an Apple Support link that said MBP battery replacement was $199, but the 2 Apple Stores near my house would not provide any appointments. Instead, I scheduled an appointment with and “Apple Authorized Service Provider” & that repair center quoted about $750 to replace the battery.

    I refused, went home, & opened a chat with Apple Support.

    After a lengthy & painful chat session where the Apple tech didn’t want to provide a battery replacement quote (he feared other issues with the MBPr), he finally gave me an Apple price of just under $650 to replace the battery.

    Did you go into an Apple store, or mail it in? I’m struggling to reconcile a price of $199 to get a battery + keyboard + trackpad against what I was just quoted 2 weeks ago. The new track pad & keyboard might have been due to repair tech error. i.e. they trashed those repairing your batter & had to toss them in.

    Bartt.Shelton@gmail.com - Antwort

    I took mine in after being quoted for a $199 replacement of battery and keyboard, only to have the repair refused as they found a "water sensor" triggered and now I'm left with my AUD$5,000 laptop with messed up keys. Shame on me for not getting this repaired during COVID while under warranty. This is the first time I've truly been disappointed in Apple, but suppose it was bound to happen someday. I was quoted US$ 1479 to replace the battery and keyboard and the sensor (likely the logic board is replaced as well) if I were to send it in to the US repair center. Any chance these sensors can be triggered by humidity?

    C0RT - Antwort

    I 1000% recommend watching this video and performing the battery replacement without all these steps from this guide and without using the acetone solvent. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ImonCWcc... (15" inch Retina MacBook Pro A1398 Mid 2015 Disassembly Battery Replacement Repair)

    The video is narrated well and the guy goes slow and zooms in where appropriate. Instead of removing all components, he simply removes the track pad cable, battery cable, and unscrews two of the speaker screws on each side. From there, you can lift up the speaker arms where the video guy uses a thin pry tool to push through the sticky tape. No solvent is needed except for residual sticky stuff leftover.

    Instead of the thin pry tool, I just used the plastic cards that came with this ifixit kit. It takes a little force and wiggle/jiggle so take your time using the corner of the card to start.

    This method makes a difficult 2-3hr job into a much easier 1hr job.

    Spencer - Antwort

    +1 for this approach! I watched the video that Spencer mentioned. It took me a little over an hour, and it was stress-free. https://youtu.be/ImonCWcc1xk

    Chris Wicklas -

    Another +1 - I followed the video pretty exactly (after having already gone through steps 1-5 here). I'm not sure it's necessary to clean off the adhesive residue as thoroughly as he demonstrates in the video, but the instructions were clear and the end results were good - trackpad still working fine and new battery already charged to 50%.

    Additionally, this is an “opportunity” to clean the cooling fans - and any other obvious dust magnets - with a can of compressed air. On the laptop I worked on, the cooling fans had sufficient dust to not “spin” freely - showing signs of “drag”. After blasting each cooling fan with compressed air (including from the exhaust vent side, as hitting the fins alone wasn’t adequate), they both spin freely now. No obvious signs of battery swelling on mine, but lack of adequate airflow could have been a factor with original battery aging/failure.

    Zathras - Antwort

    Good opportunity to give a good clean out. Air duster and small clean paint brush on plastic surfaces to clean up essential vents and fans. You can load fan monitor and control software to see what your your system is doing and how it improves with a clean up.

    pretty hard to put it back, so I just remove the clips on the upper case....

    jamiegan835 - Antwort

    The trick to putting it back on is to guide your fingers to the same level as the clips, and then when you put the case down move your hand from the left side of the case to the right side of the case; applying pressure when you reach the area where the clips are.

    Aaron Freidus - Antwort

    Impossible to put those peds into the upper case clips! It just does not hold there, it fits but just does the ‘click’ sound and goes back. Is it possible to buy those clips as spare part? Thank you for help.

    Same for me. It just never clips, regardless of the precision and the amount of force I apply.

    pay attention that the macbook in this picture is presented the “wrong side”: if you accidentally remove the tape covering the trackpad cable and thereby also take the trackpad cable out of the zif-socket, your keyboard and trackpad won’t work anymore. putting the trackpad cable back into the (tiny) socket will fix the issue though.

    Lawtay - Antwort

    @lawrencetaylor On any electronics repair, you need to disconnect all sources of power before you start. It’s a basic safety precaution and also removes the risk of accidentally shorting a connection somewhere (which can potentially kill your MacBook).

    Matt Fisher - Antwort

    You can also use a plastic tool to hold back the battery connector. My connector was under the plastic tab and had no screws. You may need to check the build version as there are a number of A1398 versions.

    Robin Razzell - Antwort

    When you install the new battery, it may look like the holes in the connector need to be slid on to the connector toward the rear of the mac. I tried bending the cable to make it work. This could damage the cables. You really need only push directly downward on the connector, as you pulled up on it to remove it initially. It will pop into place with a little pressure, just make sure it's lined up properly.

    Jeffrey Andrews - Antwort

    I had to use quite a lot of pressure to make the connector on my new battery pop all the way down. I thought it was down already when it was only half way, as I was afraid to use too much force. Maybe it varies between different battery brands, but just make sure that the connector should go all the way down and not have a gap between the two parts.

    Magnus W - Antwort

    When reconnecting these tiny wires, use one hand to guide and align the connector by holding the wire and the other hand to press them down with a flat end of a spudger. Spent 10 minutes figuring it out and connecting the first one, then only a few seconds on both of the remaining connectors :)

    If you try to do this with one hand, it’s extremely easy to move them out of the alignment while pressing them down.

    Aivar Kavshevich - Antwort

    I think there is a better way - where you disconnect the wifi card using the black screw in middle of wire 2 and 3 first and then untie these connectors. I pryed away the connectors but the sockets on the card were all damaged during the process. Ended up having to get a replacement card before reassembly could be completed. So again there are 2 components - connectors which are being pryed away and really fine and delicate socket. Very easy to damage them. Better to take the card off and delicately peel these connectors off. I would not recommend using these pry sticks mentioned here for that.

    ATTENTION ! Cette étape est grandement sous-estimée, aucune mention de la délicatesse de l’opération contrairement à d’autres étapes bien plus facile… De plus, il semble possible de sauter cette étape en déconnectant seulement la carte comme expliquer sur la version anglophone du guide !!!

    Cosimo Soderi -

    I’m attempting taking the card out but leaving the wires attached as mentioned. A Torx T5 worked for me on that screw. I then very slightly lifted up the end of the card where the wires are attached and pulled it straight out of the slot on the opposite side.

    Sean Gabel -

    Just finished replacing my display LVDS Cable with this guide and another one; awesome. I as well just removed the card and left the wires attached. Much easier.

    Alex DeLeon - Antwort

    This is one of those skills that you get experience right after you need it.

    I learned these connectors doing RF work. They require a deft touch. Put slight downward pressure while you work to align the pair. Once you get the hang of it, you will know when they are aligned, and they will go back together with a light push and make a slight snap.

    If they don’t immediately pop together with a light push, they’re not aligned quite right. Don’t force them, they have a very limited number of make/break cycles.

    The cables should retain their bent shape well enough to show where each goes. One it too short to go too far off, and one is too long to fit to the nearest connection.

    prreitz - Antwort

    I did not bother with the danger of removing cables or cards or logic board. I spent 30 mins removing my battery carefully, using string and CT1 multisolve which isn’t dangerous to plastic.

    i slid my string under the battery and see-saw underneath and sprayed Ct1 Multisolve underneath. I’ve now done both my macbooks. Didn’t destroy any cables or risk it. I put a few paper sheets over my logic board to cover any spray back. Simple see-saw and a palstic card, the blue spludger and the black long spluger.

    T Master. - Antwort

    Yes, I did the full board disassembly on my 2012 macbook last year and once I finished I kind of wondered why I didn’t just work on removing the battery. Is there any real obstacle to doing so here? Can I just spend an hour or so carefully removing the battery? What’s the risk of doing that? again, is there any actual obstacle to removing the battery without pulling out the whole board assembly?

    Brian Lamb -

    You can go straight for the battery if you’re confident enough to improvise a little. Removing the board makes sense if you’re trying to protect the speakers from getting chewed up by the solvent. Otherwise, it’s faster and easier to leave the board in place.

    Jeff Suovanen -

    Agreed. Just replaced the battery on my 15” MacBook Pro 2015 and I skipped all instruction between step 6 and 46. I just unplugged the battery and removed the trackpad connection. Used some dental floss to cut through the adhesives and a card to help with carefully prying the batteries up. After the battery was removed I used some isopropanol to clean up from the old glue. Installed new battery, attached the trackpad connection ribbon and connected battery. All in all it took me less than one hour. I would not recommend removing the whole logic board just to replace the battery.

    Mackie72 -

    I’m one of those unfortunate ones that simply followed the iFixit instructions before reading the comments. On successfully reconnecting 2 of the cables and (miserably) failing with the 3rd, I realized the relevance of the comments. I decided to take a gamble and leave the 3rd connector unconnected and fired up my MacBook … strangely enough, everything works fine i.e from the comments, WiFi, Bluetooth, Camera (et al) should be affected but they are all still fully operational (maybe they’ll die with time - I hope not). I don’t like the thought of an unattached cable lying around in my Mac hence I agree with those advocating for alternatives to this step (unhinging the WiFi card as opposed to prying these cables).

    If you do need to get the cables back on the the card, I have found good results using the tip of a T5 driver to gently push them down (of course while aligning carefully with other finger). It gives a firm, flat & precise surface to press with + we know you have a T5 around!

    If you’re just replacing the battery, after step 5 you can skip everything else except 26-27, 34, and 50, and then continue from step 56 onwards. Instead of needing an adhesive removal, I just used a credit card to separate the battery cells from the casing they’re glued to.

    Petr Bela - Antwort

    After step 5, I would skip 26-27, 34 and just to 46-50. You need to remove the cable from the battery, so even if you do 26-27 and 34, you'll need to do 46-50.

    I use the solvent to remove the left over glue after the battery has been removed, but have been able to separate the battery by just sliding a card between the battery and case.

    maccentric -

    I'm here to tell you that it is possible to remove and reassemble these wires, despite all the above comments making it seem almost impossible. I was planning to remove the entire card instead, but accidentally popped one of the wires when trying to get the card out. So then I just figured I might as well follow the instructions. Popping them was easy, getting them back on was a bit more tricky. Use a fine tip plier to hold the wire and place the plug in place, then press down (quite firmly!) with a spudge or something flat (I would advise against using a metal tool such as the torx driver, in case you slip and hit something). As long as the plug is directly above the connector and aligned properly, you won't break it. Use a good light source and a magnifying glass if needed. I brought my adjustable desk up to eye level so I could come really close and see what I was doing.

    Magnus W - Antwort

    Before removing the wires, I recommend marking each with for example some tape so that you know in which socket to place them when reconnecting them later.

    • Ziehe die AirPort-/Kamera-Kabel mit den Fingern nach oben vom Lüfter ab.

    • Die Kabel sind mit dem Lüfter verklebt, ziehe also vorsichtig, um Beschädigungen zu vermeiden.

    • Fädle die Kabel vorsichtig aus ihrer Kunststoffführung.

    • Bei der Wiedermontage sollte noch genügend Kleber auf diesen Kabeln vorhanden sein, um sie wieder an den Lüfter kleben zu können.

    Leave them attached. Remove the single screw holding the board in place and gently wiggle the airport card out (see Airport card removal instructions). Fold the card up and towards the rear of the computer. Now follow the instructions for the camera cable removal. Lift the airport card with the three leads attached and the camera cable up and fold the, to the outside of the case.

    This video shows how to do it safely: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AabLlHT5...

    Undo the 3 cables gently. remove the airport card. gently pry away the cables fro the fan plastic. then the camera cable will slide out easily.

    T Master. - Antwort

    I was afraid to just pull on any cables adhered, so I used a spudger edge to very gently “scrape” them up instead.

    Matt Fisher - Antwort

    It was much easier following the instructions on the YouTube video, thanks! Looks like the process starts around 4:11.

    why are we completely tearing the computer, just to replace the battery?

    surely tearing it down could do more damage than being careful removing the bloated battery

    • Klappe den Sicherungsbügel am Displaydatenkabel mit der Spudgerspitze nach oben und drehe ihn in Richtung der Seite mit dem MagSafe 2 Netzanschluss.

    • Ziehe das Displaydatenkabel gerade aus seinem Sockel auf dem Logic Board.

    • Ziehe das Displaydatenkabel nicht nach oben, sein Sockel ist sehr empfindlich. Ziehe das Kabel parallel zur Oberfläche des Logic Board.

    • Fasse keine Kontakte am Stecker oder dem Sockel mit den Fingern oder einem Werkzeug an. Es könnte Fett darauf kommen, oder die Kontaktstifte könnten beschädigt werden.

    • Entferne die beiden 3,2 mm Torx T5 Schrauben, welche die Scharnierabdeckungen aus Aluminium am oberen Gehäuse befestigen.

    Step 12 involves tiny T5 screws, often held in place by surprisingly strong thread lock compound. Very easy to strip the screw heads. Be absolutely sure you have the right driver for the screw, press firmly, and turn SLOWLY. The amount of force required to break the thread lock is nearly the same force that will strip the screw head. If you run into trouble, and you just happen to have a flat-blade screwdriver that fits exactly, that may work better than a T5 Torx driver. I stripped the screw head on my MBP and a flat-blade screwdriver saved the day.

    • Drücke das untere Gehäuseteil nach vorne und löse es so von der Displayeinheit.

    • Lege jedes der Gehäuseteile sorgfältig zur Seite. Achte darauf, dass das untere Gehäuseteil mit der Tastatur nach unten liegt. So vermeidest du es, dass innere Bauteile beschädigt werden.

    • Bei Ersatzdisplays stehen die Scharniere möglicherweise nicht im richtigen Winkel. Richte sie vorsichtig mit einer Spitzzange aus, damit sie genauso, wie die ausgebauten Scharniere passen.

    If you can't get your needle nose pliers under the hinges of the new display, use the blunt end of a 1/8" drill bit through one of the screw holes to leverage the hinge to the correct angle.

    Chris Shenk - Antwort

    Another solution is to use a hex key. I also forgot to get needle nose pliers and found a multi-hex key to do the trick of bending the new screen’s hinges into place.

    epicdino123 - Antwort

    Ok, help please, what did everyone’s screen look like BEFORE you did this repair? Mine had no display but you could see a slight blue lighted screen or backlight. No functionality though. I called Apple And they told me that it rarely happens, mine is only five years old and it would be probably between 600 and $800 to fix, and I could do something to hook it up to my TV the cable or just something else to hook it up to my iPad Pro. Put my son in Hawaii was to his trying to take over my screen couldn’t do that because I couldn’t except and he said he didn’t think I could take over my iPad because I would have to download an app and I had no wait to do that with a blank screen. ANY HELP?

    HDMI cable from the Mac to TV screen should allow you to see the screen

Can the clutch be replaced in the 2015 15" Retina MacBook Pro?

Thomas Taggart - Antwort

Successfully replaced screen and everything is working great. One mechanical exception - the black clutch cover is loose on one side (the left side looking at the keyboard). i can "lift it" towards myself. it wasn't obvious while i was in there that there was a step to "hook it" into anything. what has it let go from and how do i go about ensuring that it's secure when it's flipped? Anyone know?

Thnaks!

The Touch Bar models are definitely on our road map—it may be a while before we get to it, but we have every intention of writing and publishing those guides as soon as we can.

Just bought my new 15 inch retina display replacement and after opening the cover I've noticed that the rubber on the bottom of the screen is off of the screen just like it isn't even attached on the screen and one of the hindges is loose.Is that normal or its faulty new display replacement screen?This is my first time dealing with this kind of replacement.Please help!

s.viktorijoski - Antwort

Any word on the A1707 2016 pro retina model with touch bar? Will the 2015 replacement display work with that? If not, will you be selling it?

Dennis Britton - Antwort

Any recommendations sources for a new screen? I'm in the UK and Apple won't sell them without fitting them. Any idea on what they cost? Thanks.

David - Antwort

Hey did anyone have problems with the screen is blank when the started the computer back up after the screen replacement?

Thanks.

Gregory Lyall - Antwort

Yes, I’ve having this problem. There’s no backlight, and I’m afraid to try my password again since I seem to have done something to it while working blind. To see if the computer is on, you can shine a flashlight to the plastic apple part on the back of the screen and see some of what’s on the screen.

But I don’t know how to fix this. I have noticed several comments about this in another iFixit instruction — mid-2014 — so it’s not an uncommon problem.

Lou Schiano -

Fantastic, just fantastic! Thank you yet again iFixit.

James - Antwort

Worked like a charm. Thank you Bert much for this manual!

Diederick Magré - Antwort

I saved myself ~$900 doing this myself instead of taking to Apple. Great tutorial! Worked perfectly!

Mel Dell - Antwort

Given that the most useful thing you’re likely to do once the screen is removed is to remove the clutch cover to tighten the hinge screws, it would be great to show that too. Thanks for the guide that got me as far as getting the screen off.

Steve Evans - Antwort

I followed the guide, and did not have any problems replacing the display! I bought the new display on ebay for around 250 EUR and the tools from ifixit for around 40 EUR(with shipping costs), so I kinda saved myself 600+ EUR at least. Thanks Ifixit :D

Adi - Antwort

Worked, took me about an hour! Be careful of step 15, the hinges are not interchangeable.

Having troubles at startup, though — the new display works, but shows me an empty battery with a lightning bolt underneath. I plugged it in to charge overnight, and it still shows the same thing. Did I mess up a battery step?

Rachel - Antwort

Followed the guide, took about an hour! The new display works, but one problem: it only shows an empty battery icon with a lightning bolt underneath. Is this a problem with reconnecting the battery?

Rachel - Antwort

Excellent directions, thanks! I replaced my display with a minimum of drama, works great.

This worked like a charm. Had an old MacBook pro 2011 15’ that the motherboard cracked but the screen was fine. Friend dropped her 15’ MacBook pro and broke her screen so I used these instructions to swap the screen out - I felt like a total hero. Great job guys and thanks.

the macbook screen keeps going dark now any time that i leave it idle for more than 5 seconds. and it hasn’t went to sleep because the keyboard lights and the apple logo on the back are still lit up, even when i close the macbook lid shut. what could have possibly went wrong? how do i fix this ?

I just completed a display replacement for a friends MacBook Pro. He got a flawless cheap display assembly from eBay, and the whole process took only 25 minutes. Here is a time-lapse video for those who are interested in it: https://youtu.be/ac4ALQC8C9Y

Jan - Antwort

Have to admit that I hesitated to spend $500 for the display because I doubted my ability to repair my MacBook Pro myself, but I took the plunge and purchased the display; followed the instructions to the letter along with the additional comments; and it worked like a charm.  Saved $1,000 in a repair bill at an Apple Service store.  Extend my appreciation to Andrew Optimus Goldberg for authoring this guide and the contributors for their additional follow-through comments.

Terri Mead - Antwort

Not a difficult repair at all. I didn’t even have any trouble with the dreaded antenna connectors. The screen I found was $400, so definitely worth doing, as opposed to buying a whole new machine!

jiclark - Antwort

Able to replace my broken display on MBP 15”. At first I thought something is wrong when I’ve attached the new display I’ve bought via Amazon. The problem is the model number. :)

After buying the correct model number for the display, it is not that super complicated. The guide really helped a lot.

silver story - Antwort

Very informative!

Before I go ahead and try this I wanted to confirm something. I have a bright spot in the middle left of the screen, particularly visible on white background, also the top left and right corners have a slightly blueish glow with a dark background

i can provide pics, before I go shock and awe, is there anything I can do about those?

AlexMorse - Antwort

Super Anleitung. Danke!

Thomas Karzelek - Antwort

HEllo!

unfortunately, I bought a “new” display in ebay but it had problems with one of its antennas.

after having serious wireless connectivity problems (when bluetooth is on there is almost no wifi connectivity) and trying everything on the software side, i realised one of the antenna connectors was clumsily repaired. the company assumed one of the cables “must be broken”.

I am unable to return the item so i have to find a way to solve it.

would the problem be most likely in that reparation? or somewhere else?

tips about how to go through this mess?

especulario - Antwort

It would be helpful to add the hinge adjustment as a step with a photo showing where the bend needs to be, how its done (where to grip it with pliers), and how to determine what the correct angle actually is.

I’m trying to repair one of these that was dropped from a distance on a carpet, face down while it was open. I was able to reattach the screen where it separated along the top with a heat gun, but the lid doesn’t close completely.
