Then your problem is the same as mine. Once you take the mirror off, you'll find that the mirror frame is connected to the base via a threaded rod, a spring, and a nut. It could just be that the nut is loose. If that's the case, you are quite lucky.
In my case, the threaded rod was stripped so the nut cannot hold tightly. In this case, you will need to drill out the old rod. Find a metal rod of about the same size (the ones used for lamp shades work quite well) and then tap the hole and secure the new rod. Might need to cut it to get the right length. You'll also need to find a new nut that fits on the new rod. You can then reconnect the mirror back to the base. Make sure to put the spring back on there too so that you can fold in the frame.
