    Hinge is loose

    Hi there,

    The hinge on my T100 has become loose and the screen is wobbling about horribly when it's docked with the keyboard.

    Does anyone know if I Can open up the keyboard and tighten up the hinge?


    Thanks

    Look carefully at the silver piece on the dock, below the screen. Is it your hinge that is wobbly? or is it that the tablet is sitting loosely in its docking port?

    For me it was loose in the docking port and placing 6 slim pieces of black duct tape (3 on the front, 3 on the back) inside of the "bowl" of the dock made everything snug again.

    My T100 hinge also got loose and wobbly after couple months of use.
    Here is a picture of the opened hinge. It was relatively easy to tighten up.

    The two black screws on either side of the hindge, under the locking mechanism, had gotten loose.
    To open the hinge enclosure, you need to open 4 screws under the fabric-like sticker and pry it open. These screws are between the locking guides and the port, pair just in the middle and other pair near the locking guides.
