Lost The Owner’s Manual For Your Favourite Gadget, Appliance, Power Tool, Car Or Other Item?
Now You Can Find A Copy Of That Elusive User Manual Or User Guide Online, All In One Convenient Place!
You could spend many fruitless hours on the telephone to your supplier or to the manufacturer trying to get advice and help or trying to order a replacement user manual, only to find that it is no longer available – if it ever was!
All the boxes, files, drawers and cupboards where your user manual just might have been lurking have been emptied in vain, the trail has gone cold and the user manual is nowhere to be seen.
How about eBay, Gumtree or similar online sources, they might just have one or perhaps you could try the local library.
Well, they might, and sometimes they will but, in the meantime, you’ve got a piece of equipment that you really want to get sorted, sitting idle looking at you as if to say, “It’s your own fault, you should have put the user manual somewhere safe”. Hopefully, your search will ultimately result in finding a user manual for your much-loved item but, sadly, quite often it won’t.
If you reach that stage, no user manual to be had, from anywhere, you will probably abandon the search, bite the bullet and go out and buy a replacement for your item, consigning the old one to the garage or storeroom, just in case, you never know, you might need it again!
A New Solution To An Old Problem
If any of the above sounds familiar to you then you will be pleased to hear about a great new online service that has recently been developed. Wouldn't it be good if there was a single source for manuals relating to all types of equipment?
Imagine, a massive, fully indexed library of downloadable manuals and user guides for every type of equipment from TVs to toasters, mobile phones to monitors, breadmakers to bicycles. Imagine no more – just such a facility has been launched and we have provided contact details in the further information section below.
Its difficult to believe but one of these sites lists, on their fully indexed and searchable website, no fewer than 351720 manuals. That’s a staggering number but using today’s high speed search technology you can easily find the manual or user guide that you need and download it in a few seconds.
In order to make searching simple, the website designers have arranged their huge database of manuals and user guides into categories, including:
- Power Tools such as drills, jig saws, power screwdrivers etc
- TV, Video & Audio
- Vehicles including most makes of car, motorcycle and van
- Garden Tools such as lawnmowers, strimmers etc
- Computers, desktops, laptops, tablets
- Mobile telephones and smartphones, mp3 players etc
- Kitchen Appliances including Washers, cookers, refrigerators, kettles etc.
And many more – I was especially pleased and surprised to see all of the Apple range of iPads, iPods, iPhones etc featured along with just about every other make and model of computer, phone and smartphone that I could think of.
If you prefer, however, you can simply search by the make and model number of the item you are looking for. I did just that and I found the instructions for my (quite) old Epson printer, almost immediately! It took just a few seconds to download and I had the information I needed right in front of me.
The manuals are downloaded in .pdf format so you can view them with any .pdf viewer or, of course, you could print a hardcopy should you need one.
You can obtain a free .pdf viewer if you do not already have one on your computer, again the link is provided below.
The next time you need to know how to change a cartridge, fit a new battery or bulb, change an oil filter or whatever it is you need to do, you know where to look.
