The missing user’s manual: It’s a source of frustration for bargain-hunters who buy used electronic devices or appliances at online auctions and garage sales. Sometimes that valuable piece of information is missing from the box even when the product is new.
You could contact the manufacturer for a replacement. Or you could get manual for free online.
Manuals are available at several sites, including Retrevo.com, an electronics-review and shopping website where manuals are available for about 100,000 products from 1,000 manufacturers. Manuals are also available at Manuals Online, Free Service Manuals and Users Manual Guide.
