My V.Smile powers on for a split second then goes blank no power

I just put new batteries into our v.smile. It powers on for a split second then goes blank, no power. If I put a game in and try to turn it on, it won't even power on for a second, just nothing. Anything thing like this out there?

I has the same problem. I went to Walmart and baught the power plug for it for $10 and now I have no problems with it. So we can don't have to use batteries anymore. I totally recommend it.

My Vtech vsmile didn't work a the time I push the power button never happend my batterie are test and are brand new an i try to connect direct with a power supply never work again


There are problems with the power adaptors. Did you use a VSmile power adaptor, or something that just seemed to fit the unit? Using the wrong power adaptor (like unknowingly plugging a Leapfrog power adaptor) into the unit can cause damage to the Vsmile Board.
Push and hold the power (smile) button for one minute, then install fresh batteries. if it powers back up, then try:

Dirty Smartridges (the game cartridges) are to blame for about 90% of VTech Vsmile products not powering up.
In some instances, the cartridge slot on the unit itself can become damaged and will cause no power up.
Kids (of all ages) can dirty a smartridge in less than a second, and render the whole system dead.

When I turn the console on, the logo pops up an says "V Smile Motion." However, if I put a game in and turn it on, it does absolutely nothing.


This worked for me!
Ttry removing all of the batteries or unplugging the power cord..and holding down the "ON" button for about 45 seconds. Then replace the batteries (be sure they are fresh) and try your product again. It is somewhat of a "hidden" Re-Set button.

V-smile will not load the game - what can be the problem? Thank you!


Make sure the system is turned off before inserting the cartridge. Things you can try to get the V.Smile TV Learning System to work:
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.

V smile learning systems keeps restarting


Unplug the system from the power supply for about 15 seconds and try one more time. If that fails:
Make sure the power cord is plugged in and that the red/white/yellow cables are plugged properly into the TV. Also, as you plug the red/white/yellow cables into the TV, make sure you turn the TV to the right channel - it is different for every TV. For instance, the red/white/yellow on the front of my Sony is labelled Video 2 - yours might be labelled FRONT, AUX, or something else.

Things you can try to get the V.Smile TV Learning System to work:
1) Press the Reset – Press and hold the ON button for about 10 seconds

Screen is blank


Try the reset button on the back of the unit.

Also try cleaning the contacts on the games. Push back the sleeve on the game and clean good with alcohol. If this doesn't do it, unplug it, and clean the contacts inside the unit with a qtip.

Hope this helps!

V smile pocket problems


Do you still have your receipt? You could try to echange it at the store. Vsmile is coming out with a newer slightly different handheld model you could try. Though, we have a vsmile for the home and a leapster as a handheld game. Which both of my children have loved. Have you tried calling Vtech about the problem? I've had to call before about the home unit and they were very helpful. (Incedently, I have had problems with that, so if you ever do here's a helpful tip: Reset the machine by unplugging EVERY cord and pressing the two front buttons together for one full timed minute! We were having problems with a power issue and this solved it) They may be just as helpful as Leapster's Leap Frog company and send you a replacement! Once on a long car trip my daughter got sick in the car, while playing, so needless to say the game system got it too. And when I called Vtech about what to do, they sent a replacement! Try calling Vtech and see. You never know! Good luck!! :)
