Mine was doing the same thing. Solutions is taking out the SD card. Worked after that. My wife had downloaded something new on it and that is when it started.

SOURCE: My son's leapster L-Max turns on by itself.

this may sound ghetto, but take a q tip/cotton swab and get it slightly damp with rubbing alcohol. enough so that one single drop could run off. let that drop run over the power button, then press the power button pretty hard a few times. sounds like some food or some sort of foreign substance could have gotten around the edge of the button, tricking the console into thinking that you're pressing it, when really, it's just sticky.

How do you calibrate the leapster learning game system?


  • Follow these steps to calibrate your Leapster Learning Game system -
  1. Remove any game and turn the Leapster off.
  2. Turn the unit on.
  3. When the sign in screen appears immediately press and hold down "home"(house), "hint"(question mark), and "B" buttons together for 4 seconds.
  4. Now you will see a few options.
  5. Press the "A" button for the touch calibration option.
  6. Now just touch the stylus on the cross-hairs and it will be calibrated.
  7. Now you want to restart the unit.
  8. Redo the steps if this should not work the first time.

Leapster2 is 2 1/2 years old. Placed brand new batteries in Leapster2. Try to power it on, screen comes up like it is going to turn on, and it turns off.


Welcome to FixYa!



Ensure NO GAME is in unit
Power Unit off
While turning Leapster 2 on, hold down HINT KEY. (Key in middle with question mark on left hand side)

Once unit switches to other menu, Hit A to begin calibrating.
Follow prompts with Sylas pen to reprogram Stylus pen.
Once you are done it will return to original Calibrating Menu.
Power Unit off Turn unit on with game inserted. Stylus pen should respond.



1) Ensure that a cartridge is not inserted

2) Hold down the Hint (?) button while turning the unit on. Continue to hold the Hint button down until the LEAPSTER menu appears. 3) When the LEAPSTER menu screen appears, press the A button 4) Touch each of the crosshairs that appear with the stylus 5) Restart unit


Do comment if it helped or not in any manner ill know.

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
Thank you for using fixya! I hope I had helped you with your problem. May you have a good day!

The Leapster turns on and the sign in screen comes up but the touch screen does not work. Recalibrating does not work. Can't get past the sign in screen


How did you try recaibrating? I just fixed my son's Leapster 2 a few minutes ago. I read a couple different recalibration instructions and the one that works for the Leapster 2 is:
1-Hold down the (?) Hint button while turning on the system.
2-Keep holding it down until the Leapster menu shows up
3-Let it go and press the A button
4-Touch each crosshairs x with the pen tip
5-When it goes back to the menu screen, restart the unit

Leapster 2 screen to dull to see


The leapster 2 screen is so dull you can hardly see the writing and programs. Very dark in colour. You can see colour arounf the edge of screen but the darkness overpowers the screen.
