Hinge splitting screen apart

I bought the Toshiba Satellite Radius P55W-B5112, that has a 360 hinge so it can go into tablet mode. The hinge broke within four months of owning it. I sent it to Toshiba. They said its my fault that the hinge quit after four months not their $@$*!& manufacturing. They also said that it would cost far to much money to replace the hinge and the back of the screen.

I've fixed a broken hinge before on a previous laptop so I'm not afraid of buying the parts and taking it apart. Last time I had a manual that I could follow and a youtube video, but I can't find anything.

I was wondering if anyone had solved a similar problem with this laptop and could give me advice? Also, some of the advice for other Toshiba hinges suggested using glue or adhesive. I was wondering if anyone knew if that would work on a 360 hinge? Seriously any advice on this models hinge would be appreciated.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

My wife's Toshiba Radius is showing the same symptoms. The screen is separating from the cover like the glue is failing.

This isn't the first problem she's had with it. The previous problem is that it would reboot unexpectedly and the touch pad stopped working altogether.

I have the same problem. But only after I got the screen replacement. It refuses to stay together. It will snap on and appear tight, but as soon as I open it, it comes apart. Any suggestions??

It took me a full nine months of fighting with Toshiba and lodging a complaint with the California Attorney General's Consumer Affairs office before Toshiba would honor its warranty. They replaced the computer finally.
