Volunteers at a Restart Party fixing devices, cropped on hands

Description

Fixit Sundays – 1st Sunday of the month

Every First Sunday of the Month is our Melton Space FIXIT SUNDAY – Usually 11 until 3, but check the calendar.

Do you have any broken or faulty items which you would like to try and repair? Are you interested in learning how to make and fix things? Everyone is invited to come along with any broken items to see if they can be fixed – there should be volunteers to help out and give advice.

Can you fix stuff?

If you are good at fixing and/or making things? Then please come to share skills and help out!

Have a go at something new?

In addition to the repair sessions, there will also be opportunities to learn & have-a-go at activities that include Woodwork, Laser Cutting and engraving, Electronics, 3D Printing and working with various materials.

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.
