Try pressing the reset button on the back.
Also, try cleaning the contacts on the games. Push back the sleeve on the game and clean good with alcohol. If this doesn't do it, unplug it, and clean the contacts inside the unit with a qtip.
Hope this helps!

Probably not, I have fixed several digital cameras by doing this. This is for a GE E1235 but screws and other stuff shouldn't be hard to find.
Well I decided to fix it my self.
1st: Take out all the screws (7 total) one is hidden under the av out cover. Make sure u mark all the longer screw heads and location with a marker so you know where they go. There were only to sizes so if you mark the longer ones you should be ok.
2nd slowly pull the back of the camera back (BUT BE CAREFULL, do not pull to far there are wires from the LCD and buttons to the camera.) Now there is a little tab on the main board holding the wires from the LCD to the camera. Flip it up and remove the LCD wires. After you do that push the LCD wires back in and flip the tab back down. Be careful not to damage wires or tab. Put case back together, put screws in where they go, and wallah. Your camera should work. If not try again, and make sure your properly putting wires in. If it doesn't work email me I will be making YouTube video for this soon. REMEMBER TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK!!! I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE YOU CAUSE!!!

We had the same problem. Put alcohol on a q-tip. Pull back the plastic sleeve on the Smartridge (game) and clean both sides
of the metal contact. Insert the Smartridge into the Smartridge slot and remove quickly. Then insert Smatrige and turn on the power.
I did this to all of the games and now it works like new!
Hope this helps!

There are problems with the power adaptors. Did you use a VSmile power adaptor, or something that just seemed to fit the unit? Using the wrong power adaptor (like unknowingly plugging a Leapfrog power adaptor) into the unit can cause damage to the Vsmile Board.
Push and hold the power (smile) button for one minute, then install fresh batteries. if it powers back up, then try:
Dirty Smartridges (the game cartridges) are to blame for about 90% of VTech Vsmile products not powering up.
In some instances, the cartridge slot on the unit itself can become damaged and will cause no power up.
Kids (of all ages) can dirty a smartridge in less than a second, and render the whole system dead.

Testimonial: "Great job Thanks a lot i do a little clean up of my vsmile I do what you say to I need to do and now MY vsmile Work!!!!"
Tips for a great answer:
Slide the UNLOCK switch on the bottom of Camera and use the knob to pull the slide-out
Battery Tray. Install eight (8) AA size alkaline or lithium batteries with polarities as
indicated in the Battery Tray. Re-install the Battery Tray and insert your SD card.
We recommend that you format the SD card inside the camera before taking pictures
