Description

Restart returns to Abbey for more fixing in Kilburn

**This party is hosted by Transition Town Kensal to Kilburn**

Restart
Parties are free and fun events giving practical help to fix your
broken or tired gadgets. Slow laptops, broken printers, coffee grinders,
lamps, kettles, vacuums and many other small electrical items! We’ll
help you figure out the problem and give help and advice on how to fix
it.

Restart Parties promote the repair and maintenance of
electronics that may otherwise be thrown away. Our volunteers will help
you learn to fix, we’re not simply a free repair service and we can’t
guarantee to fix everything.

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 there to help you learn to fix
    your gadget, not to provide a free repair service. Please back up your
    data before the event.
  • Charge up your device and bring all leads and adaptors.
  • 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. However 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.
