Make sure the power cord is plugged in and that the red/white/yellow cables are plugged properly into the TV. Also, as you plug the red/white/yellow cables into the TV, make sure you turn the TV to the right channel - it is different for every TV. For instance, the red/white/yellow on the front of my Sony is labelled Video 2 - yours might be labelled FRONT, AUX, or something else.
Also, you mentioned SCART. If your TV is in Europe, and the unit you have was designed for the US, the power supply isn't going to power the unit without an additional transformer. Also, the US models might have a native color system that is incompatible with PAL.
Things you can try to get the V.Smile TV Learning System to work:
1) Press the Reset – Press and hold the ON button for about 10 seconds
2) Make sure the game is inserted far enough into the system, and that it is pointing in the right direction. You may occasionally need to clean the contacts.
3) Also, make sure you are using the supplied power cord/adapter, not batteries. Batteries cause more problems than they’re worth.

Turn the cartridge the other way and try pushing it in with the game name facing towards you. This should work.

It is possible that the audio cables were plugged into one port on the TV, such as Video 1, Aux, etc. and the yellow video cable was plugged into a different port such as Video 2, Aux 2, etc. Make sure the yellow cord is in the same port as the red/white.

It sounds like you need a new cable that runs from the unit to the TV. Check the cable for cuts, etc.

My kids damaged mine closing the entertainment center door on it. I cut the wire, reconnected the wires all and taped it back up. Works fine now :D

New Vtech Smile won't advance to games in TV Mode


Try plugging the joystick into the opposite port - if it is on the Player 2 port, plug it into Player 1, etc. If it works in one port, but not theother, then one of the ports is bad/damaged. If it doesn't work in either port, it is the joystick itself. Replacement joysticks can be ordered from VTech, Amazon, Target or Walmart.

Other troubleshooting methods:

1) Press the Reset – Press and hold the ON button for about 10 seconds
2) Make sure the game is inserted far enough into the system, and that it is pointing in the right direction. You may occasionally need to clean the contacts.
3) Also, make sure you are using the supplied power cord/adapter, not batteries. Batteries cause more problems than they’re worth.

I have sound, but no picture.


It is most likly the problem is where you put the game in. Try using a can of air to spray in there. If that doesn't work, It would be cheaper to buy a new one then to have that one seviced. You could also spray the air into the cartridge.
