Have you considered logging a job with your local or regional Canon service centre?

I have went to my local store to see how much it will cost to fix the screen but they want $300 plus to fix the whole screen sadly. All i need to fix is the Hinge.

OK, in that case I suggest you go onto your local trading site or eBay and look for a broken 80D camera for parts.  You might get it for considerably less than the $300 you quote.  That said, dissassembling a camera body comes with its own risks - infiltration by dust, electro-static discharge etc.  So the risk is yours.

Two things.  One, the "hinge" is more than a simple mechanical device.  There are wiring connections running through it.  

 

Secondly, manufacturers dropped the practice of making component level repairs on electronics years ago.  Repairs are made by changing out entire assemblies.  The labor costs involved in removing and tearing down an assembly, replacing a component, and then reassembling and reinstalling it exceeds the cost to simply swap out the entire assembly.

 

DIY repairs are great, if you can pull it off.  I feel that this is what money is for.  I pay people to fix things, even when I could probably do it myself, provided I had the needed tools and resources to complete the repair.

It needs to go back to Canon. It will be better and probably cheaper in the long run. Canon will not only fix the problem but will check out the entire camera.
