Turns on then imeditely turns off

I have the V-tech Vsmile(orange) hooked to a TV through a game adapter. All color coded cables hooked properly. Channel on TV is correct for adapter. When learning system is turned on the screen shows V-tech Title screen. After a second or two, It goes right back the regular TV channel.

This has happened to us many times. For us it was because the back cord that connects to the console, had a short in it. We wiggle the back cord a little and it works. It is a pain to do, but we do that instead of getting a new one, since we no longer have the box or receipt for it.

I have plugged the v tech in to the tv and put batteries in the bottom but nothing works


This system can be frustrating because if you don't do things in the right order, it won't work. I wrote the instructions in permanent marker on the side of mine. Start with the TV and Vsmile OFF
step 1) put the cartridge in and make sure it is all the way in.
step 2) turn the TV on
step 3) turn the Vsmile on
if it still doesn't work you may have to take the batteries out and it seems to clear and then follow the steps again. It is easier to buy an adapter instead of batteries so if you need to clear it you just unplug it and start over. Good luck!

Our Vsmile won't play


Make sure the system is off before inserting any cartrdiges. 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.
