Can you fix / repair an item I have and return it to me?

We're afraid not. We are a computer museum and not a repair service, sorry!

Why don't you offer repairs? I'm happy to pay?

a) We're volunteer run. Only a small handful of our volunteers have the expertise to repair items.

b) The volunteers who can repair items have a backlog of items to repair for the museum, so they simply don't have the time

c) Our insurance doesn't cover the repair of items for the public

Who can repair my item?

We'd recommend finding a specialist repairer. There are some repair companies who specialise in retro, or in a particular type of retro device. We've listed a few below.

Retro specialists

Local to Derby

Also try user groups...

There are some great user groups on Facebook and other platforms with lots of knowledgeable people who may be able to offer advice, solutions, or put you in touch with someone who may offer repairs.
