Restarters Oslo

Tar vi vare på tingene våre, tar vi vare på naturen.

Restarters Norway vil skape en kultur for reparasjon med fokus på bærekraftig elektronikk. Vi vil vise at det kan være gøy å reparere! Vi hjelper deg med å ta vare på egen elektronikk. Vi forteller politikere og bransjen at det må bli lettere og billigere å reparere, og at det vi kjøper må leve lenger.


If we take care of our things, we take care of nature.

Restarters Norway will create a culture of repair with a focus on sustainable electronics. We want to show that it can be fun to repair! We help you take care of your own electronics. We tell politicians and the industry that it must be easier and cheaper to repair, and that what we buy must live longer.

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.
