Claim up to $225 in the Toshiba Satellite Broken Hinge Class Action Settlement

By Sarah Pierce


Do you own a Toshiba Satellite Laptop that has (or had) a broken hinge? You may be eligible for a cash reimbursement and other credits for the repair of your laptop under a class action settlement.


The Toshiba Satellite Broken Hinge Class Action Settlement (which we break down here) resolves a lawsuit that claims certain models of Toshiba Satellite laptops have manufacturing defects that make the plastic housing surrounding the hinges, and the hinges themselves, prone to cracking. The class action settlement provides up to $225 for each repair made to fix the broken hinges. Other qualifying owners will be eligible to receive a cash payment of $50 or a $150 credit voucher for future purchases at Toshiba Direct.


If you purchased or leased a new Toshiba Satellite Notebook between April 1, 2000 and March 12, 2010 that has the following model numbers, you are eligible:


Toshiba Satellite 1000

Toshiba Satellite 1005

Toshiba Satellite 1100

Toshiba Satellite 1105

Toshiba Satellite 1110

Toshiba Satellite 1115

Toshiba Satellite 1130

    well shit i guess i missed it on my old laptop and my 4 month old ones hinges just broke ….toshiba is still selling defective products

  • Ames August 15, 2013

    Three days after the 1 yr warranty ran out on my Satellite P845-S4200 11 days ago the right hinge popped out of the screen housing popping the screen housing open. Best Buy says $300 to fix! Only used it sporadically as a backup so very little use! So Toshiba is still not admitting to manufactured defects? NO MORE Toshibas!!!!!

    Ya…wth? I bought a Toshiba Satellite in late 2012 . It was around $300 a good deal for what I needed, but the guy at the Major Office supply store I bought it from mentioned that the satellites had problems with the hinges….I should of listened….Both sides are popped now. Still works, but for how long? And….no….I never dropped it! What a joke. I’ve had several other laptops over the years and never had a problem like this. Its a joke that Toshiba is still selling these. What gives? I’m going ask the major Office retailer that I bought this from…Why? Why would you sell something that you knew had problems.

    My Toshiba P845-S4200 had its left rear hinge break approximately 6 months after the warranty expired. Are there any open actions with this model?

      Me also, my Toshiba P845-S4200 had its left rear hinge break approximately 8 months after the warranty expired.

    • JamieP August 28, 2014

      I have a P845-S4200 with both sides broken! The worse part of it is that the replacement part is $150.00-225.00 used and new! What a bad deal! What can be done to get class-actions on this Model Line?

  • Galyna April 26, 2015

    My Toshiba p845-s4200 had its right hinge break approximately 12 months after the warranty expired

  • Caitlin June 10, 2015

    My Toshiba laptop also has a broken left hinge. I can not believe that there was a lawsuit 5 years ago and they continue to manufacture computers with the SAME problem! Shame on you Toshiba!!!!

  • Tom August 7, 2015

    I have had both plastic hinges break on my Tosiba bSatellite S-70 A. Even the big box stores can’t fix this poor design in Toshibas computers. I will never by another of their products. This was treated very gingerly. I had this POS for 18 months !!
