    I have the exact same problem.
    Please someone help.
    It is a HUGE problem and I can not calibrate the screen because it is off so far,literally an inch.
    I keep pressing the middle,but it won`t move because the calibration is so far off I am not pressing that +,the screen is not comprehending that I am.
    i`m 13 and I can`t buy a new one,and I can not ask for another for Christmas.
    I just really want this fixed.
    Someone with an actual,working solution would be appreciated.

Actually, the red cross's movement is part of the calibration. Continue clicking each individual red cross until you get a confirmation notion notice.

In order to calibrate the touch screen, the DS needs to know where certain areas of the touch screen are relative to the actual display. Basically, you're not really controlling the display. You are interacting with a hidden interface, which is the touch screen. But in order for you to "interact" with what you are seeing, the touch screen is laid across the display.

The touch screen of my Bernina 580 stopped working today and it was perfectly OK yesterday. Is there a way to fix it on my own or should I look for help?


Calibrate the diplay
The Display calibration can be opened as follows:
- turn off the sewing-/embroidery computer
- touch the two needle positioning buttons on the front panel and keep them pressed
- turn on the sewing-/embroidery computer and release the buttons as soon as the Display appears
- touch the calibration icon
- touch the center of the cross using the touch pen
-- the cross moves to the next position
- repeat this until all three positions shown are calibrated
-- the Display is closed
-- the adjustment is saved

When you press the screen it dosen't work. Batterys are in a good place i don't know what to do is a brand new toy


You can try calibrating the stylus pen. Hope this works :) Here are step by step instructions straight from the Leapster2 website:

If your Leapster2 does not respond to the stylus pen, it needs to be calibrated. Calibrating the Leapster2 is easy:

1) Ensure that a game cartridge is not inserted in the Leapster2

2) Hold down the Hint (?) button while turning the unit on. Continue to hold the Hint button down until the LEAPSTER2 menu appears. Remember that you need to hold the "Hint" button down the whole time while you are pressing the power button, and releasing it.

3) The LEAPSTER2 menu will show the options Base Info, Cart1 Info, Cart2 Info, Cart3 Info, and Touch Calib. If you do not see this menu after powering on the Leapster2, turn the Leapster2 off and repeat steps 1 & 2 until you see the menu.

4) When the LEAPSTER2 menu screen appears, press the A button on your handheld.

5) Using the stylus pen, touch each of the crosshairs that appear

6) Restart unit

My touch screen is off set how do i fix it


If the LG Voyager is the same style menus as the LG Viewty then this should be straight forward.

Simply goto your main settings page in your phones menu. Then find the Touchscreen Calibration option. You should then be greeted by a screen with a cross-head in the centre. Tap it either with your stylus pen or your finger and it will then move, repeat this until the calibration is finished.

Thank You.

Leapster can't read input


You need calibration
Touch Screen Calibration is as:
1.) Ensure that a cartridge is NOT inserted.
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.

When I use my pen to click on my nintendo DS screen,it touches or selects somewhere else on the screen so I can't play my games properly.


Might need to re-calibrate your screen. From Nintendo's site.

1 Remove all games from the DS.

2 Turn the system on.

3 Press the A Button when the "Touch the Touch Screen to continue" message appears.

4 When the main menu appears, use the Control Pad to to place the cursor over the Settings Menu Panel at the bottom of the screen, and press the A Button.

5 Use the Control Pad to place the cursor over the orange icon that looks like crosshairs (the right-most icon), and press the A Button.

6 Use the stylus, and tap the red square that appears on the screen. Do this each time the square moves.

* You must touch the red square precisely at each of the three positions, otherwise the test will continue to re-start.
* If the above steps did not help, there is a problem with the system and it will need to be repaired.

7 When complete, four squares will appear, allowing users to test the touch screen sensitivity. (Testing is optional.) Tap the "Confirm" button in the lower-right corner.

8 Wait for the the confirmation message to disappear, then tap "Quit," then "Yes" to exit. The unit will shut down automatically to save the settings.

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.

Pen writes in one spot, but image shows up 1/2 below.....


1. To calibrate the ENTouch 1000 power off the device.

2. Prior to restoring power touch the pen to the center of the screen and do not move it.

3. Power on the device. Leave pen in center of the screen and do not move it. If you move it the device will not enter calibration mode.

4. Allow device to boot. If you held the pen in place the EnTouch 1000 will enter calibration mode.

5. Follow the on screen instructions. Be very methodical and do not try to rush it...
