Help when you need it – try Fixya.

It’s almost a case of what will they think of next. How many times have you used some sort of electronic device, something goes wrong and you have no clue how to fix it. I don’t know about you, but I fit into the category of luddite and need some hand holding to work me through fixing the problem.  Fixya could be the answer I – and many others I’d suggest – need.

Here’s what they have to say on the site about what they’re offering;

What is FixYa?

Fixya provides Free tech support and technical help for gadgets, electronic equipment and consumer products. Fixya’s technical experts advise on fixing problems and provide instructions on proper usage of products either by chat or message posting. Fixya stores manuals and troubleshooting guides for over half a million products. Fixya’s tech support community will provide a quick solution for your “how to” problem. 


 

There are constant updates on their home page with questions and suggested solutions to problems people are having with devices. You can ask a question of their experts (when I clicked into this there were 167 experts online who could potentially solve a problem) and receive an email alert notifying you when a response has been posted. Handy. Fixya could be the solution for schools with little technical support in-house and for everyday people struggling with devices and instruction manuals that are indecipherable.
