I have the original builder's kitchen oak cabinets from 1990.
The hinges are exposed but I do not know why they won't close, most of them are open a bit.

Can the hinge be adjusted or must one resort to use velcro or other things?

Most times you can spring the hing and make it work better. If you can post a picture it may help.

Many of those hinges have a built in plastic spring---old age may have caused their death---

Remove a good hinge and see if it snaps closed---then your bad hinge---I think your hinged are shot---new hinges are available at a reasonable cost and are easy to change---let us know what you find---

There is no adjusting that style, Remove one and take it with you to any box store, There's differant off sets and screw spacing.
