OK, after nearly breaking my daughter's leapster I have figured it out.

Use the coin and twist the little screw up. Then with the screw part closest to your chest, SLIDE the cover off AWAY from your chest. The batteries are located on the undercarriage of the cover. It takes "4" AA's

Hope this helps everyone!!!

If the battery compartment lid is not sliding out after you have loosened the screw, press the coin in the gap created from what short distance it did slide, and use the coin to force the battery compartment forward. Mine was really stuck, and this did the trick after some serious effort.

Instructions
    • 1Put the screwdriver into the screw hole in the small panel on the back of the Leapster. Remove the screw, and open the panel.
    • 2 Remove the batteries from the Leapster and discard them. Find the small "reset" button behind the panel cover. The reset button should be black or red
    • 3 Press the reset button with the pointed object. Hold the button down for about three to five seconds.
    • 4 Put fresh batteries into the battery chamber. Make sure the flat side of each battery connects with the springs in each battery channel. Screw the panel cover back into place.
    • 5 Press the Leapster's "on/off" button. When the Leapster comes on, enter the country informationicon1.png and the player's name.
    • 6 Press the "hint" button, which opens a pop-up help menu. Press the "A" button. Use the stylus to touch the center of the small crosshairs on the screen to calibrate the touch screen.

My daughter's Leapster 2 Handheld game's screen is dark. She cannot see any of her games that she tries to play. I tried using the brightening button, but it doesn't help. Also, have replaced the batteries...


are the batteries you are using the correct size/voltage for the leapster? I believe it takes 4 AA/LR6 size batteries at 1.5V each.
has the product been dropped or bashed?

How do you changed the leapster battery?


you need to use a coin to twist that silver knob on back. then once it pops up (it is spring loaded), slide it down , it comes all the way out and hols 4 AA batteries. change them, slide the whole unit back in and twist the knob with a coin to lock. I hope that helps.

My daughter dropped coins in my steering wheel and it is causing the horn to go off randomly. Can i disconnect the horn temporarily? it is a peugeot 407 se (05)


Yes. open your hood, look at front of vehicle, you will see the horn. Unplug the wire.
You may be able to pull the fuse, but check that no other accessories are ran on that circuit too

Leapster 2 unit turns on, warning msg re. seizures and flashing lights stays for a few seconds then shuts off. Has new batteries. my daughter has the same problem with hers it turns on and brings up an...


We have 3 Leapsters. The old green model and 2 newer models. Our green one started doing that not long after having it. But it still works and if it shuts off, then we just turn it back on again. When I called up c/s for Leapster, they sort of make it difficult to return. And then I was not promised a new one, but it could be new or refurbished. I let it go. Now w/ the 2 new models, I believe this has happened. I've questioned if my kid's are accidentally hitting the power button. I have seen the green one power off before. I purchased the $10 plug in's. So worth it. No more batteries. And we haven't had any issues. So perhaps it is the batteries. Call up Leapster though and see what they have to say. Good luck! :)

Leapster not powering on


I have never used the Leapster before, But I researched it a bit and discovered that it uses "AA" Batteries. Were the rechargeable batteries you used before designed for the Leapster or were they older Ni-Cad (Nickel Cadmium) style batteries? Older Ni-Cads put out a slightly higher voltage than standard (1.7v) as opposed to the standard 1.5v. This could possibly cause problems. If you have only had it for a few months than it should be warranty protected. Hope this helps. Cheers!
