Hpoe this helps, had the same problem with my son's leapster2, took it back got a replacement and the same thing happened within 5 minutes of turning it on!! Finally found this advice on the net.

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
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

Good luck, seemed to work for ours

We realised that the leapster needed calibrating ...works fine now, and it was very simple to do!

Lol I just took mine back again. I would have thought a major outlet like Toys R Us should know about the calibration and advised me but to be fair to them they did exchange again without any fuss.

Thanks for the advise I will know for next time.

How do I calibrate the touch screen on a Konica 7165?


To adjust the touchscreen sensitivity, perform the following:
1. Power the copier OFF.
2. Access the Key Operator Mode (Power the copier ON, while pressing the [HELP] key).
3. Touch [10. Control panel adjustment] on the touchscreen to display the control panel adjustment screen. Note: If the touchscreen is so far out of adjustment that there is no response when touching [10. Control panel adjustment], the control panel adjustment can be accessed (at this point) by touching any numeric key on the 10-key pad.
4. Touch the + at the upper right corner of the touchscreen lightly with a touch pen (something with a round tip which is made of resin is recommended as a touch pen). Check the coordinates displayed in the top line at the top of the touchscreen.
5. Ensure the X coordinate and the Y coordinate displayed in the message area fall within the standard values. The acceptable values are on the second line.
6. If the values are not within the acceptable parameters, repeat Step 4 until the values are acceptable.
7. Touch the + at the lower left corner of the touchscreen lightly with a touch pen (something with a round tip which is made of resin is recommended as a touch pen). Repeat the process used for the upper right coordinate until acceptable values are achieved.
8. As verification of a correct adjustment, touch the [CHECK] icon at the upper left and lower right corners. You should hear a beep tone for each one. If a beep tone is not heard, repeat the adjustment.
9. Power the copier OFF/ON to exit the Key Operator Mode.

It sounds like the TouchScreen needs to be calibrated.

1. Hold down the Hint button while turning the Leapster on.
2. When the Leapster menu screen appears, press the A button.
3. Touch each of the crosshairs that appear with the stylus.
4. Restart the Leapster.

Hope this helps!

Touch screen does not work, can't select name. Tried on off


Switch off the console and switch it back on again holding the ? button down. This takes you into a menu, choose the touch calibration, it will take you into a black screen with a cross in one of the corners, touch this with your pen and then touch all the others as they appear, all corners and the center. Once this has been done it will take you back to the menu screen again. Switch the console off and on again and it should work. :)

The Pen


I'm not familiar with your laptop but judging from all the pdas I've had with touch screens the pen itself is only a pen, you could basicly use a wooden stick to poke at the screen and it shouldn't make a difference to the computer.

this laptop has a touchscreen If I'm not mistaken and you should be able to use it even with your fingers.

You might have a faulty touchscreen or then you need to install a driver for the screen?
