PSOne LCD screen loose hinge

I just got a PSOne that has the LCD screen. The screen works great but the hinge is very loose and will not stay in place. Is there any way to tighten it up?

If there is no way visible way to tighten it up try sticking a small sliver of rubber inbetween the hinges. That should tighten it up. That will aviod you having to take it apart. I'm not sure of the hinge structure of the LCD but that trick worked for various hinged things I repaired throughout the years.

I got one a few months ago that has a loose hinge. It won't stay in place at all, and is very annoying. There's no way to unscrew the thing to fix the insides either... If you figure it out let me know, cause its been driving me crazy!

I took apart the Sony LCD screen for the PSOne and the problem is due to 10 broken plastic forms that serve as receptacles for 10 screws. The metal hinge assemblies seem exceptionally tight and do not move easily (I have to use pliers) so my guess is that the screen got really tough to move and the original owner forced it and the plastic broke. If it sounds like pieces are rattling around inside the LCD there is a good chance that this is what happened. I think any type of repair is very unlikely to be successful. The screen itself is still good so maybe I'll use it some project some day.

I can definitely hear plastic moving around in there. :(

I will have a spare PSone screen casing available when I open up a fresh one in a few days time for my N64 project, someone can buy it for just the cost of postage and PayPal fee if you want it - same casing for PAL or NTSC screens, BTW. When I open mine up you will see how it comes apart so know how to put it back together again! PM me if you want it.
