Change the touch screen,about £10 from e-bay.
when used hard ,screen gets distorted and won't calibrate properly,and in extreme cases,stops working altogether.

The touch screen doesn't work with my finger tip, only when my nail touchs screen, also did the screen calibration, did not not help


It may be a resistive screen rather than a capacitive screen which is not as sesitive to touch. You may need to use a stylus as it may need slight pressure vs just touch if it is a resistive screen.

The pen has stopped working when touching the screen


If your Leapster 2 will turn on, but the touch screen is not responding to the stylus, try re-calibrating the stylus with the screen using the steps below: 1. Turn your Leapster 2 off, and remove the game cartridge.
2. Hold down the 'hint' button while the game is off. The 'hint' button is the middle small button in the row of three above the directional pad on the left, with a '?' on it.
3. With your finger still firmly on the 'hint' button, turn the Leapster 2 back on. Keep your finger on the 'hint' button.
4. The screen should be displaying the calibration screen. You can release the 'hint' button now.
5. Press the 'A' button on the right to enter the calibration screen.
6. A small '+' sign will appear on the screen. Touch it with the stylus. A new '+' sign will appear. Touch this with the stylus too, and repeat for as many '+' signs as your Leapster 2 throws at you.
7. The screen will return to the calibration screen. You can now turn the machine off. Leave the cartridge out of the console, and turn it back on.
8. Your stylus and touch screen should now be working, enabling you to sign in as usual.
9. If it is working correctly then you can turn it off, add a game cartridge and turn it back on

How do I change the sensitivity to the screen so that I can use my longnails & not my finger?


you will not be able to use your fingernail on the hero screen. the touch screen is similar to the iphone (capacitive) and different to most other touch screens that use a stylus (resistive).

your finger is required for the screen to pick up where you touch.

there is a special stylus you can buy that will work, but make sure it is specifically for the iphone. a standard plastic tipped stylus will not work.

Problem with the touch screen an stylus


Press the Up + Down buttons at the same time. This will turn off the "Digitizer" function on the tablet and allow the user to use their finger, the stylus, or blunt end of a pen.
