HI Mark

Wow, I hope that it broke because of an accident and not just normal wear
and tear!

Thanks Woody. As far as I can tell it's just the arm of the hinge
that's sheared and there's no other damage. In this image, it's the
section on the right that protrudes downwards which has sheared across
its width:


I haven't disassembled far enough to see what the spring is like, but
I don't think it's a problem. I have a couple of replacement ribbon
cables en route to add to the "Newton Spares" drawer, just in case.
Once I've got a replacement hinge/arm, I'll carry on disassembling to
replace the broken one, and will do the spring fix while I'm at it
