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.

(2) Hold down the Home, Hint and B buttons simultaneously,
(3) When the screen changes, press the A button,

I recalibrated the leapster2. It recognizes the stylus on the calibration screen. When I reboot it still doesn't recognize the stylus at all. Please help.


Hi,

If your Leapster does not respond to the stylus pen, it needs to be calibrated.

The following are instructions below on how to recalibrate the leapster.

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.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Is there a site from where i can download games for Leapster2 ?


Dont know about you're first question. But the leapster 2 uses non High Capacity SD cards (it can not read them) so you are limited to 2 GB max.

Leapster 2 Doesn't Recognize Stylus


Hold the hint button (question mark) when turning on the device. When the device turns on, do the stylus calibration and touch each of the crosshairs that shows up. After you are finished restart the leapster and you should be fine.

You need calibration
Touch Screen Calibration is as:

2.) Hold down the Hint (’?') button while turning the unit on.
3.) When the LEAPSTER menu screen appears, press the ‘A’ button.
4.) Touch each of the crosshairs that appear with the stylus.
5.) Restart the unit.

Leapster with broken pen


My daughter did the same thing to the tip of her Leapster 2 stylus. I called Leap Frog at 1-800-701-5327 and was able to order a replacement stylus directly from them on credit card for $5.00 shipped.

I also took her old stylus and sanded the broken tip down with 100 grit and then 220 grit sandpaper to get rid of the sharp, cracked point and it works just fine. I figure I'll keep the sanded one as a spare in case she does something silly with it again.
