How to Contribute

There’s a big task ahead of us: writing a repair manual for every device in the world. We’ve divided the task into lots of smaller parts to simplify contributing to the site, even if you have only a couple of minutes to spare. Here is some helpful information to get you started!

The easiest thing you can do is start adding device photos to new repair manuals. It only takes a few minutes, and encourages other people to add more content.

Examples

I learn best by watching other people do great work, and then immediately jumping in feet-first and trying it out myself. The community has posted some great repair guides in the last few days that are worth learning from. The photos on this LG VX9200 LCD repair guide could use some improvement, but the writing is superb. Some of our simpler repair guides are also worth learning from.

Using a repair manual to fix an iPod

If you’re working on instructions for a device that already has some step-by-step guides, it’s important not to duplicate content. We allow you to build on top of existing instructions by using prerequisites. I’ll talk more about how prerequisites work in another post, but there is a brief description here and you can see examples in our repair manuals.
