Leapster L-Max making High Pitched noise when turned on.

Our Leapster L-Max is making a very high pitched noise when turned on. It is not coming from the speakers because it is still there when the sound is off. Putting my ear up to it--sounds like it is coming from behind the screen. Can I do anything about this? We have two of these and the other one doesn't do this at all. Please help

SOURCE: Leapster screen not working

Apparantly, the Leapster screen issue is a common problem. While this suggestion is not ethical and since my game was near perfect condition, I went to Wal-Mart and bought a new one of the same color and then returned the broken one.

SOURCE: Brand new leapster no picture has sound but display is blank

Calling LeapFrog right now for the same problem.

First, they suggested cleaning the battery contacts.
Now they're stepping us through recalibrating the screen.
Now they're asking where and when we purchased it.

Answer - take it back to the store.

Leapfrog gave us the only solution to return and get a new one since we did have the receipt.

SOURCE: the touch screen on my sons leapster doesnt work.

From the parent Guide:
1) Ensure that a cartridge is NOT inserted. 2) Press the power button to turn on your system. 3) When the “game selection screen” appears, press these buttons all at the same time: • the “B” button • the “Hint” button • the “Home” button 4) You’ll see a message that says “Press the “A” button to begin.” 5) Follow the on-screen instructions.
I hope this helps you

While playing games the wii makes a high pitched sound

That's the capacitors inside the system. When capacitors aren't solid state they will make a high pitched noise while under load.

I have leapster l-max and am having trouble with the stylus working. when i try to calibrate, i can't click on center targets

Leapster L-Max recalibrates differently. I was trying to use the instructions and it kept asking for a blue button. For the Leapster L-Max push B, A, Hint, and Home when you turn it on. Do not have a cartridge in the player or it will think it is a regular Leapster. Once it says calibrate screen it will say to press A, then wait until a target appears in the upper left hand corner, touch it and you should hear a sound, then a new target appears in the lower left hand, repeat actions, then lower right hand screen, and finally the upper right hand screen. If it stops at any time and doesn't get more arrows, try it again or turn it off and see if the pen works. It may take several times to get it working again.

Leapster L-Max dies after 10 min

A cheaper alternative is to use the rechargeable battery pack.
Regular nicad batteries are not equipped to handle electronics like this.

The touch pen doesn't work

I had the same problem and here is the answer I found at which fixed my daughter’s disney princess leapster 2’s problem. Good luck!
If your Leapster2 does not respond to the stylus pen, it needs to be calibrated. Calibrating the Leapster2 is easy:
1) Ensure that a cartridge is not inserted
2) Hold down the Hint (?) button while turning the unit on. Continue to hold the Hint button down until the LEAPSTER menu appears.
3) When the LEAPSTER menu screen appears, press the A button
4) Touch each of the crosshairs that appear with the stylus
5) Restart unit
