    The buttons work, but not the pen on the screen. It's as if, the pen is broken, but I don't think the pen is electronic....

DO NOT BUY A LEAPSTER L-MAX. THEY HAVE MAJOR TOUCH SCREEN PROBLEMS! Mine has never worked right, 2/3 of the touch screen does not respond and Leapster says there is nothing they can to because it's past their 90 day time period. They were extremely unhelpful. They know there are issues here and refuse to recall or replace any defective units.

Hi, We live in Australia and I am having difficulty finding the Leap Frog interactive globe. Big W used to sell them. I also require a replacement pen. The US site won't deliver outside the US. ...


Hi Dani,
I've seen these units in BigW and Myers in Brisbane. We bought one damaged which I fixed by replacing some capacitors, if the reason you want a replacement pen is because you have one that stopped working it's possible the capacitors are just worn out, they have a limited life. If you know someone handy with a soldering iron they can be replaced for a few dollars in parts, but an hour or two of labour!
Opening the globe is a bit tricky so feel free to contact me for advice. I can be contacted by the feedback form at www.flowershop.com.au rather than posting my email address to all the spammers of the world. ;)

When my child tries to use the pen to choose anything it is no longer working.


They recommend that you try cleaning the pen. Unplug the stylus pen and wipe both the plug and the jack with a dry cotton swab. On most LeapPad systems you can remove the pen via the battery compartment.

If the pen still does not work you can order a replacement stylus pen for $5, which covers shipping and handling.
Simply call Consumer Services at 1-800-701-5327, and order a new pen.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if I can help you with anything else.

Leapster can't read input


You need calibration
Touch Screen Calibration is as:

3.) When the LEAPSTER menu screen appears, press the ‘A’ button.
4.) Touch each of the crosshairs that appear with the stylus.
