Presario 2700 / EVO n180: display hinges tired - LCD without any hold

Please, could anybody tell me, what are the PART NUMBERS of the hinges for my Presario 2700 GR ?
GR probably means 'German', but I guess that it should be the same part as in each other Presario 2700 (or EVO n180, which seems to be identical in construction) with 15" XGA-LCD.
I need that number for my spare parts order!

The notebook is from 2001 - so the sticker with the precise Product-No. and Serial-No. is rubbed off and completly unreadable... that's why the Hotlines and Support Centers I've called couldn't help me until now.

But I found out, the MODEL NO. of my notebook is 470024-185.

The PATENT NUMBER stamped on the hinges is PAT.5.697.125 (cave: this No. is used by IBMs Thinkpad too, but it's a completely different part!).

If there's someone who could help me, I'd be very very happy... the notebook is still in very fine condition, but without working hinges it's hardly possible to use it...

Many thanks in anticipation,
P. Becker

Here is a link to an auction on ebay for a whole screen with hinges for about $30 BUY IT NOW price...it will get you the hinges you need without the hassle of finding the part number:

Re: Presario 2700 / EVO n180: display hinges tired - LCD without any hold

Thank you very much for your link, Steve!

Unfortunately, this part offered in ebay, costs 39$ + 39$ shipping to Germany. So it's nearly 80$...
I can't risk to pay so much money for a used part, which might have the same washed-out hinges than mine... how should that been checked in this dismantled status...!?

That's the reason why I didn't already order any kind of used parts via ebay: in Europe there are no parts - and in the US there are a few seller like this, but the shipping costs push the prices higher than for a new part from HP itself...

So, I talked with different HP part-distribution partners. They could send me the NEW part for much lower investments, if I can give them the original HP part number.

Nevertheless, thank you for your looking for my hinges!

Sincerely yours,
Peter Becker

Re: Presario 2700 / EVO n180: display hinges tired - LCD without any hold

Thank you for your labor, Cheryl!

But I had already looked in HP Part Surfer before I posted my question here in the support forum, so I knew that hardware-kit. To my knowledge, this kit includes a huge amount of (for me) superfluos parts and costs a lot... too much to replace these tiny simple hinges... ;-)
But to be sure, I'll try to write to the Part Surfer Staff - maybe they'll answer in a helpful way!

Thanks,
Peter Becker

If there is anybody who knows the Part Number of the hinges WITHOUT ALL THE OTHER CONTENT of the hardware kit, please, tell me!

Hi!

I got the same problem you got - I need hinges for my 2700GR.
Did you find a way to get some hinges?
btw: I'm from Europe (Austria) too.

Hi Stefan,

I'm sorry, but I did not yet find any solution.

Cause I'm actually extremely busy, I found no time to write in this issue to the Part Surfer...
