Yes, the manual for your DVD player is in the house somewhere.
No, you have no idea where to find it.
Luckily, www.appliance411.com has links to about 30 manufacturers’ sites with on-line versions of appliance manuals. You can also find links to 17 sites that explain how old things like microwave ovens and dryers work, as well as 61 tips that may help you avoid calling a repairman.
I only know this because we lost the manual for our all-in-one remote. I can’t be the only one who doesn’t put the manuals in a file folder and safely tuck it away into a fire-proof file cabinet, am I?
