No target appears on the calibration screen

The stylus doesn't work and when I try to calibrate it, no target appears on the calibration screen, only the words Screen Calibration.

I just got one of these for my 4 yo daughter and had the same problem after 2 days. GOOD NEWS IS IT IS FIXED. The problem was crumbs stuck between the edges of the screen and the frame piece around the edge of the screen. I assume this was creatintg pressure in 2 places at once, confusing the screen/software and not showing a target on the calibration screen.

I used a toothpick to remove the visible crumbs, but if you have a can of compressed air used for computer cleaning, than that might be even a better idea. It seems that screen problems were chronic back in 2004, but no so much now. I learned about this here: http://www.watercoolergames.org/archives/000028.shtml

GOOD LUCK and post back if it works as it is simple and maybe some of the other people with problems have ths same simple issue.

On the screen of MP826 a message appears it is -touch the center of the target and hold for one second. repeat as the trget moves . i try this but nothing happens .


This is the screen calibration utility. Your screen may of become really bad out of calibration. It may take a few times to get it to fix itself before you can use it. It may also help to use a stylus
if you have large hands.

I have leapster l-max and am having trouble with the stylus working. when i try to calibrate, i can't click on center targets


Leapster L-Max recalibrates differently. I was trying to use the instructions and it kept asking for a blue button. For the Leapster L-Max push B, A, Hint, and Home when you turn it on. Do not have a cartridge in the player or it will think it is a regular Leapster. Once it says calibrate screen it will say to press A, then wait until a target appears in the upper left hand corner, touch it and you should hear a sound, then a new target appears in the lower left hand, repeat actions, then lower right hand screen, and finally the upper right hand screen. If it stops at any time and doesn't get more arrows, try it again or turn it off and see if the pen works. It may take several times to get it working again.

When i do hard reset hx2490b screen calibration does not appear


Try using your finger to calibrate the screen at first. (If you have difficult to navigate to the alignment screen use the stylus & keyboard to feel out your way) when calibrated to an accepable degree use the stylus to calibrate the sreen, if the target doesn't respond to stylus at any specific piont use your finger. Continue this process till u get it aligned as best as possible. I suspect this problem is caused by specific points on the screen going bad.
