Question Good Laptop repair shop in Bangalore?

The LCD hinges of my Toshiba laptop (Satellite 2400) has conked off, it doesn't hold on its own.

I took it to the Toshiba ASC, the Engineer checked & said the part (hinges) for this model is no longer available, i.e. Toshiba doen't support this model any longer.
This laptop is 2003 model.

When I googled, the part is available with a seller in eBay based in HongKong.

Now, I am looking for a good reliable Laptop repair shop in B'lore, who can if possible get the part or atleast fix the part if I procure it on my own.
Any pointers please?

@Finneyp - I have a very good guy - please PM me and I'll send his number to you - his name is Hari. Doesnt have a shop but works on his own (he does our IT stuff in my office). I have at least 2 cases where he was able to get hinges for an Acer and and HP, the manufacturer advised this person to just junk the laptop.

Note from Support - Please avoid typing with dots between words (like this ... abc...def..) as it affects readability. Please read the forum rules before posting any further.

Hello Finney, you could try contacting ESN-World.
They have 2 offices in Bangalore - in J.P.Nagar ( 2nd Phase ) & Marathahalli.
Best thing is that they're open on Sundays - ideally suited for weekend disasters.
However, in my case ( spilt coffee on my Latitude E5440 ), they really couldn't help since the key-pad wasn't readily available with ESN's resellers.
Nevertheless, they cleaned up the insides & got it to boot - for a very nominal fee.

Your PM will help one person, a public post will help hundreds .

Please post Hari's details publicly so that others can benefit too.

Thanks!

There are many shops in SP road, who do these jobs for fraction of cost! If you are okay go to SP road, go there. I have past taken many times my laptops (HP, IBM) with display, sound issues.

How come I missed this thread. I looked almost everywhere on the internet and a couple of shops too though phone for a replacement hinge for my toshiba C640 Satellite-Pro laptop but could not source it except for this 1 guy on ebay.in.

Just got it & replaced the hinges myself watching a youtube view this afternoon - off day well spent..

Gopikb, if you are in South Bangalore, then you can contact Cosmic Systems in Jayanagar 4th Block. I have known the owner for many years now.
