  1. SOSav

SOSav adventure started in 2011 with a simple observation: what if anyone could repair their own High-Tech device? Here is the challenge that the team started so the average man in the street can repair his own smartphone, tablet, video game console, computer… and save money.

Though, not comparable to iFixit but similar as it helps you buy parts and provides a comprehensive guide. Their guides are currently available for Apple computers, mobile phones, tablets, digital music players, game consoles, cameras, smartwatches, and virtual reality headsets.

  1. PowerbookMedic

  1. wikiHow

wikiHow is an online wiki-style community consisting of an extensive database of how-to guides. Founded in 2005 by Internet entrepreneur Jack Herrick whose goal is to provide step-by-step instructions on how to do seemingly anything.

But a little breakage is that it basically gives general know-how and not a detailed guide. For instance, they don’t tell you how to fix exactly the component that’s broken on your model of computer or mobile device. Still, that doesn’t mean it’s useless for addressing your electronic woes.

  1. YouTube

Everybody has a thing for YouTube because of its video-graphic advantage, and not text. YouTube is stuck up with tutorials and clips of people personally fixing their PCs. Ironically, most of the listed sites above even upload videos to YouTube.

A good number of tutorials don’t even emerge from a brand but rather from persons who have a good knowledge and experience of ICT. Their guide most times is usually reliable.

Though you should be mindful of authentic content because anyone, can wake up any day and upload any content. This should keep you on track on who to listen to and who not to.

NOTE;

● Fixing a device more or less should be something you’ve decided to take upon yourself. That is, you should be willing to put in your all. Be sure that you can also run the risk of damaging your device. In order to avoid further damages, you should rather take it to Professionals for repairs.

● Some brands make their devices difficult to repair. They may design hardware to require tools that only brand employees have. Sometimes, they may also refuse to create or provide guide manuals to consumers or repair shops. At this point, you have to take your device to the company fir for repairs.

A way out of this is by buying from a different company. This is why people have come together to demand the right to repair.

● Be mindful of scams that present themselves as reliable. Just make sure you avoid repair and tech support scams!
