I found this with ours and I bought a new system and the AC adapter to go with the new system batteries were getting crazy anyhow the kids hooked up the old one to the vsmile adapter and it stopped. So from experience you need fresh batteries or only the vsmile 9v adapter, other brand adapters also caused the jumping!

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 not working once cartridge is placed in slot


Here's the solution to your V smile: Oxidized connectors! Remeber the original Nintendo back in the 80s? You had to repeatedly reinsert the cartridge so that it would work properly. The V smile has the same problem. They use tin plated copper contacts on the game cartridges as well as the internal connector. All newer electronics use gold plated contacts because gold does not oxidize (rust, corrode). You'll need a very fine sheet of sandpaper. Start by lightly sanding the game cartridge connector (you have to expose the contacts by pushing the plastic part in). Make sure you wipe the contacts clean with a rag, and do not touch the contacts with your fingers! Then you have to do the same with the console's internal connector. The danger here is bending one of the pins inside so be very careful. The real solution to this would be to replace the connector but no one sells it (checked ebay, Vtech). Should last a couple of months to a few years, depending on relative humidity and use. If your V smile turns on normally without a game cartridge, then this is your problem. Symptoms vary from no power to corrupted graphics to no sound as well as random turn off (with a cartridge, no problems without a cartridge). I've done a few lately and all are working like new. Let me know how it goes, but I take no responsability for bent pins, damaged connectors, fire, earthquake,...

Hi i'm Ryan, have you tried to reset it? Remove the battery cover there should be a small pin hole with a button in it, push it to reset. It worked on my daughters.

V tech smile.


It sounds like you need a new cable that runs from the unit to the TV. Check the cable for cuts, etc.

My kids damaged mine closing the entertainment center door on it. I cut the wire, reconnected the wires all and taped it back up. Works fine now :D

Having issues when the games are in the console


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

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!
