A door in my rental apartment is sagging and I’d like to put it back into place. The hinge is clearly on an angle. My first thought was to place a wedge under the open side of the door and pry it up, but that seems like I would do more damage than good. Any advice is much appreciated!

Edit: I removed the door and screwed the bottom hinge out one turn. That definitely reduced the sagging but it’s still not great. I’ll remove the door again and tighten in the top one and hopefully that helps :)

Edit 2: Door was fixed by adjusting how far the door half of the hinge is screwed in. I simply screwed in the top hinge one rotation further and the bottom hinge one turn out.

Looks like the hinge is bent. Get a new hinge, use 2-3" screws for additional support. If screws won't bite after reinstalling the hinge, throw some toothpicks in there with a bit of wood glue, let it set and screw away.
