    recently a problem araised regarding cracked screen hinge on eamchines m680x series notebook, to determine the number of cracked screen hing owners out of total number of emachines notebook owners, the poll has been created.

    To determine whether your screen hing is cracked or not, please close your screen and look at the notebook from rear side.

    Hinges aren't cracked, but the tension is definetely getting looser and looser every day. It's beginning to worry me very much actually.

    Many times, the tension will slack as the notebook sees more and more use.

    If it becomes that the screen will not stay up on its own, then you have a defect, and should send the system in for repair.

    That is scary thinking the tension might all be gone and the notebook would not be able to stay open on its own.

    No cracks and the tension seems to be just right, not too tight or loose.

    the left side hinge on my M6809 has a crack in it and it seems to widen with use and a crack in the right side has appeared, and has also began to widen and lengthen. I hope something can bedone maybe a redesign of the chasis or better plastic? possibly more metal.

    Just from the responses, it sounds like there is a hinge problem, or there isn't.

    That would seem to indicate a single or multiple bad batches. Let's see how much of a response comes through on the poll...remember, the more responses, the more accurate the results.

    Who posted the vote for another series? I think that, if the problem is with all eMachines lines, and not just the m6xxx line, that the problem is more widespread...by the way, the 6410 is from a very similar shell from Arima.
