A Response to COVID-19 From OWC Founder and CEO, Larry O'Connor

To start with, if your device is still under warranty and you are able to return it for repair, or you can purchase a new spare part that matches the defective component, we recommend doing so. If that’s not an option, because there isn’t enough time and you need to use the device urgently, or you are currently unable to leave your home, please keep on reading.

Some of the tips in this article are intended for an emergency only and, if not done carefully and properly, could potentially damage the product. Therefore, whenever possible, we recommend returning the device to us for repair.
