London, United Kingdom

Hosted by Group avatarRestarters West London

Volunteers at a Restart Party fixing devices, cropped on hands

Description

Join Hillingdon Friends of the Earth in Ickenham at the Guide Hut in Community Close for our 9th Restart party and 4th in Ickenham. Bring your broken small
electrical and electronic items along and we will try to help you fix
them.We also do simple sewing repairs such as hems and buttons.

The venue is situated in the centre of Ickenham, 5 minutes walk from Ickenham Underground (Met and Picadilly lines), 2 minutes from the U1 bus stop (Ruislip – West Drayton) and beside the library public carpark.

Please note the earlier time than our previous events. We hope this will spread our visitors more evenly over the 3 hours, as it does not span lunchtime!

Restart Party Do’s and Don’ts

DO

  • Check if your device is still within warranty, you may be eligible for a free repair, replacement or a refund. (Which? helps in the UK).
  • Take responsibility for your device and your data. Our volunteers are here to help you learn to fix your gadget, not to provide a free repair service. Get involved!
  • Backup your data. We can’t be responsible for your cat pics, so please back up your device before you come. (Of course you already do this once a month, right?)
  • Charge up your device and bring all leads.
  • Get in touch with organisers if you have any questions about whether a fix is possible.

DON’T

  • Assume repairs will be successful. We help fix over half of devices at our events. Even if your repair is unsuccessful, you will learn about your device and why it failed.
  • Expect us to have spare parts. But we can help you source them. Often people visit twice: first we’ll help diagnose the fault, then you source the spare part, and on your return we’ll help you do a replacement.
  • Attempt a mobile screen repair just to save money. DIY mobile screen repair is a learning opportunity first and foremost. Please see our advice page first.
  • Bring a microwave.
