If you're interested in writing instruction manuals
for consumer products, such as VCRs, CD players. etc.,
how would you go about finding such a "gig?

The archives are full of stories from people who brought products home, realized the enclosed documentation was woefully inadequate, wrote to the manufacturer offering their services, and got the gig. It's not the only answer to your question, but it's one answer.
