West Fleetwood Computer Clinic

If your computer fights back, if it’s refusing to do what you want, you need this FREE Computer Clinic.
Emmanuel Church West, the church in the heart of the West Fleetwood Community, wants to offer the help and expertise of its members to you and your computer, phone or tablet.


If your computer fights back, if it’s refusing to do what you want, if you wish you understood it better, or you are just plain stuck, come along and get some FREE advice and help.


Every other Monday (apart from bank holidays), the church will host a drop-in session at Rossall Tavern, Larkholme Parade from 7:30pm to 9:00pm and local residents are invited to bring their computer, phone, tablet and/or your problem.

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.
