Left hinge problem on inspiron 15 5547 a design vulnerability
I am too facing the same issue of the hinge on my inspiron 5547 when i checked with the dell team they say its not covered under my warranty.
When i further analysed the issue the problem is as follows
1. The hinges are strong made of steel but the base which fixes them to the front panel are plastics.
2.The nuts are moulded into plastic and fixed with screws which makes them break after our normal day to day usage.
3.I assume this has been overseen in the design review .
Can any one please advise how you got this fixed ?
