    Leapster turns on, screen is on but shows nothing on it. Looks as though my daughter spilled something like koolaid on it. The liquid got in the buttons but due to the rubber seal around the screen, it didn't penetrate any of that area. It doesn't look like it even made it to the circuit board. Checked the brightness and it ain't that. If anyone's got some info I'd love to hear it!

There are two buttons on the Botttom of the leapster. One is brightness one is dark. You probably turned it to dim.

Zoomerpup stopped working

Try removing the battery ONLY for about 5mins. Then reinsert the battery and see if it powers on.
If that fails, remove the battery AND Media Card for 5mins. Reinsert battery first...power on. Then SD card.
If neither of those work, check charger to see if it is working. If there is an LED light on the actual charger, this should light up. If there isn't, then the charger should at least be warm after say, 30mins of charging. If it is still cold, you may need to replace the charger.
