Question about Vtech V.Smile Pocket
My Vsmile pocket turns on, however, when my son inserts the game, the device turns off. It seems to be that a short circuit occurs when the game is inserted because if you withdraw the game, the device turns on again. How can I fix this? How can I open the device? Thanks for your support.
The issue may be the game itself. Check to see if the contacts on the game cartridge are dirty. If all contacts are not clean (all should look the same, clean & shiny), clean with a pencil eraser then wipe with a clean dry cloth to remove eraser bits.

This is a on going issue with these . First of all these take a lots of juice to operate most of the time it is just best to use those store bought batteries . See over time even a small time these rechargeable battery's just don't hold up. Now with this being said make sure you buy the better battery's like lithum ones made for digital cameras and such. If not any thing else this will help you get by tell you get a replacement rechargeable .

Make sure the system is turned off before inserting the cartridge.
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.

Remove all Smartridges, controllers, adapter or batteries.
Examine the Smartridge slot for loose objects, Blow into it to
remove dust or debris.
Pull back the plastic sleeve on the Smartridge and clean both sides
of the metal contact with alcohol and a cotton swab.
Insert the Smartridge into the Smartridge slot and remove quickly twice without turning on the V.Smile unit.
This should fix the problem.
