Leapfrog- Leapster system Stylus adjust

The stylus for my leapster is not adjusted or centered to the screen. When trying to point to a name, it selects the one above. It makes the maze games or tasks requiring fine movement very frustrating.

    I have the same problem. But it can some time be solved by recalibrating the Leapster. To do that, hold down the "home", "hint", and "B" button when the Leapster is turn on. You may need to try a few time. If recalibration still does not take care of the problem, it may be manufacture defects.

The pen on my sons leapfrog leapster won't work


Push the "A" button to enter the calibration.
There will be a little plus sign. Touch it with the stylus and continue to touch the plus signs with the stylus until you return to the calibration screen.
Turn the Leapster off and then back on again without a cartridge.

My Leapster 2 comes on, shows the name on screen & ask to touch my name w/ the pen; however when I touch the name, nothing happens. It keeps asking to touch a name or "guest".

Leapster


I found this on an Ebay guide...

"FIRST! The pen is not electronic AT ALL! If the screen does not seem to be working with your stylus pen (for instance, you click one part of the screen and it clicks a totally different part), you may need to calibrate the screen! Put a cartridge in, turn the system on, and when the sign in screen comes up, press the HOME, HINT, and B buttons at the same time. When the screen changes, press the A button. Follow the directions.

If you need a replacement pen, with the cord attached, follow the instructions:

Send $5.00 in check or money order (to cover shipping and handling charges) to
LeapFrog Customer Service
Leapster Replacement Stylus
563 North Fairview Street
Santa Ana, CA 92703

Please note that this is supposed to be for pens that are lost or damaged ONLY."

Leapster with broken pen


My daughter did the same thing to the tip of her Leapster 2 stylus. I called Leap Frog at 1-800-701-5327 and was able to order a replacement stylus directly from them on credit card for $5.00 shipped.

I also took her old stylus and sanded the broken tip down with 100 grit and then 220 grit sandpaper to get rid of the sharp, cracked point and it works just fine. I figure I'll keep the sanded one as a spare in case she does something silly with it again.
