Leapster not recognizing the pen??

I have an original Leapster and for some reason it is now not sensing or recognizing the pen. The games register and otherwise we are having no problems. Do you know why this happens and is there an easy fix?

    Thank you that worked great! Now if we can just figure out why, when using the pen it doesn't always recognize what you are writing...the writing games seem to be the worst.

Try this - - - -
(1) Insert a cartridge, turn the unit on and wait for the sign-in screen to appear,
(2) Hold down the Home, Hint and B buttons simultaneously,
(3) When the screen changes, press the A button,
(4) Using the Stylus, touch the center of the targets.

Does it work now???

Leapster2 is 2 1/2 years old. Placed brand new batteries in Leapster2. Try to power it on, screen comes up like it is going to turn on, and it turns off.


Welcome to FixYa!



Ensure NO GAME is in unit
Power Unit off
While turning Leapster 2 on, hold down HINT KEY. (Key in middle with question mark on left hand side)

Once unit switches to other menu, Hit A to begin calibrating.
Follow prompts with Sylas pen to reprogram Stylus pen.
Once you are done it will return to original Calibrating Menu.
Power Unit off Turn unit on with game inserted. Stylus pen should respond.



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

We have a Leapster 2 which the screen no longer registers when touched by the pen. Can this be fixed or replaced? i bought it only 2 months ago hope you can help Emma


I posted a solution to this problem a couple months ago. We have the Cars edition of the Leapster2. I'm guessing it was the same problem that we were having. When the pen touched the screen there was no response and the unit had barely been used. Try this!! I found it on www.ehow.com.

Callibration
  • If you touch your stylus pen to the screen of your Leapster2 and it does not respond, your unit needs to be calibrated. To do this, make sure no game cartridge is in the unit. Turn the unit on while you are holding down the "Hint" or "?" button. Keep holding the button down until the Leapster2 menu appears. You will need to turn off the unit and repeat these steps if you do not see the menu. When the menu comes onto the screen, press the "A" button and use the stylus pen to touch each of the crosshairs as they appear. When you are done, your unit should be properly calibrated.

    I found this on an Ebay guide...

    "FIRST! The pen is not electronic AT ALL! If the screen does not seem to be working with your stylus pen (for instance, you click one part of the screen and it clicks a totally different part), you may need to calibrate the screen! Put a cartridge in, turn the system on, and when the sign in screen comes up, press the HOME, HINT, and B buttons at the same time. When the screen changes, press the A button. Follow the directions.

    If you need a replacement pen, with the cord attached, follow the instructions:

    Send $5.00 in check or money order (to cover shipping and handling charges) to
    LeapFrog Customer Service
    Leapster Replacement Stylus
