FixYa, an Israel-based company that operates a website to help with troubleshooting electronic devices, has raised $6 million in a second round of funding.

Investors are Mayfield Fund and Pitango Venture Capital. The company said it will use the money to expand its operations in the U.S. and Israel, as well as build new services. It claims 6 million visitors per month.

FixYa lets visitors search for answers about their product-related questions or post their own problem, and then finding an answer to their questions — the company says an answer usually arrives within 12 hours.

Q&As are organized by product type and model. We covered the company previously, when it was about to raise its first round.
