Display hinge broke from base

Hi,

My laptop hit the floor and the post that the laptop base hex screw attaches to snapped off. Not a problem, however the laptop keeps separating every time I close the lid and I have to push the top and bottom together to put the laptop to sleep. It’s now causing more internal damage and when I open it up, the clip has snapped off the laptop base as well as the screw hole to the base is also cracked in half. I’ve attached pics but wanted to know the hinge was attached to that I need to replace, as well as the hinge itself. This is on the same side as the power button. Any info would be very much appreciated. And not sure if the pictures uploaded or not but have those too.

Thanks!

Hi @frankralfano ,

You need to replace the palmrest assembly.

Here’s a link to the service manual for a Dell XPS 15 9550 laptop taken from this webpage

Scroll to p.87 to view the necessary pre-requisite steps and then the procedure to remove/replace the palmrest assembly.

Replacements are available online. Just search for Dell XPS 15 9550 palmrest assembly to get results for suppliers of the part.

@jayeff , any suggestions on sourcing the palm rest assembly and not paying Dell $230 for it? I can't seem to find it anywhere on line. Part no is 05dy4c. Kills me to spend all of that money because of a broken post! Thanks again for your help.

Hi @frankralfano ,

Search online using the "part number only" in the search box of your browser. Apologies if you've done this already

Here's one that may be cheaper if the shipping doesn't raise the price too much.

Thanks @jayeff, I will take a look. Really appreciate all of your insights!

Have you resolved this yet..? It's what refer to as a “Design Flaw” by Dell.. I've had to engineer a solution for this problem, as I have seen multiple XPS Models with this very same thing happening.. Note: this is on the opposite side of the WLAN Connector, but I would probably handle it the same way… Cheers

Hi Ruben, I really like your solution looks absolutely solid. Can you tell me which and which size screws and bolts you used for this fix please? Did you use any glue as well? Thanks

because it’s a newer model, you may be able to check your warranty. also, because it’s a big hinge, you may need to open it up to re-attach it.

Unfortunately it's been out of warranty for over a year. The hinge has broken from whatever it was attached to underneath the keyboard area. Looks like it was also glued down for extra support.

Oh. Since the XPS seiries os newer, I thought you might have your warranty.

Any thoughts on how to re-attach the hinge piece to the palm rest? The hinge plate is glued down and my left one, same side as the power connector, just de-laminated from the body underneath it. Is there a particular glue I could just re-glue it? Thanks

Hi @ Bill Layton,

I would try using something like this - example only and check how that goes.

It's a bit tricky with plastics as not all glues etc will adhere properly and some may even seem to melt them.

Good luck.
