Powerbook G3 "Pismo" hinge replacement2008-03-17 13:03
My laptop’s lid became very floppy after a few years, and it seems to be a common problem with the entire Powerbook G3 family. Luckily, I found a pair of Pismo hinges for $15 shipped on eBay.
Removing the top lid in its entirety is fairly straight-forward, but the hardest part by far is opening the lid to access the panel and hinges. It has screws and those awful breakable plastic snaps.
The panel itself. Not of interest to us this time.
But I will take the opportunity to make my Pismo a little more unique.
All done! Just reassemble and enjoy stiff hinges and a lid that doesn’t fall down.
