If you don't see any X's then you have to clean the screen very well with some Windex and dry it well. Take any crumbs out of the screen edges and then "milk" the screen with the thumb gently. What happens is that the digitizer gets pressure areas built up so you want to dislodge it. You might need 3-4 "milking" tries. By milking I mean pressing on the screen with the thumb (gently) till you see the screen "bleed."

Also after this align the screen.

Leapster 2 does not respond to the sylus.


I had the same problem. I tried to clean it, brush out crumbs, gently "bleed" it and so on until I saw Quebol96's answer to the same problem: www.fixya.com/support/t3077478-leapster_will_not_recognize_pen_first

Quebol96's solution worked perfectly!

From Quebol96:
Answer If your Leapster2 does not respond to the stylus pen, it needs to be calibrated. Calibrating the Leapster2 is easy:
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

Hi, have you tried to recalibrate the screen as in your instructions?
Make sure you have no game inserted
Press and hold down the 'on' button and 'hint' button (with questionmark on it) at same time until a menu appears on screen
Press A
Now touch all the little crosses with your pen that appear on the screen
switch leapster off and restart
if still not working, repeat above

Call up Leapster (c/s I reached was not in USA) and they will have you send in your Leapster and send you back a new or refurbished one. I was told this a few years ago, but never mailed it in. We had an issue with it shutting off, but seems to be ok? The kid's don't complain.

Leapster screen not working


Apparantly, the Leapster screen issue is a common problem. While this suggestion is not ethical and since my game was near perfect condition, I went to Wal-Mart and bought a new one of the same color and then returned the broken one.
