So, Right to Repair's been shut down all over (RtR is a proposed bill to force manufacturers to share essential information to repairing devices). If you have the money, please donate. Louis has been doing repair videos for years:

for all my XR friends, note that RtR for XR means headsets you can fix yourself, no locked-down chips like T2, and no manufacturer deciding when you can or can't have a camera on. It also forces manufacturers to be truthful about what components are on their boards.


By virtue of being OSHW is already amazing at right to repair, but if or such had Right to Repair you'd be able to better understand how your device is built and replace the most common failed components, maybe even do DIY mods to improve them.
