Has anyone else had this happen? I couldn’t find anything totally clear on the couple searches I did… only mention of concern on the 15.
I opened mine today to power it down fully and it seemed fine, was this morning, but when I went to close the lid there was a crackle sound. I opened it a bit to look and see if maybe there was something on the keyboard or some such… nope… so I went to close it again and crackle again.
Opened and looked specifically to see what was wrong with the computer itself and saw the hinge was misaligned. Turned it over and starting on the left side it has come most of the way apart and it looks like the plastic inside where the hinge attached normally is disconnected and it’s jacked up the alignment of the entire thing crooked.
Has anyone else had this occur? Is it a known issue with the body already? Seems it should be covered by warranty as it’s been treated kindly and not long owned, seems to be a defect issue, but anyone have any difficulty with it being fixed under warranty?
Am gonna contact support, of course, but wanted to check in with other owners’ experiences with the hinge holding up or not. Thanks, all!
