Leapster got wet, no longer reacting to stylus prompts

4 year old son drops Leapster in water. dad takes unit apart to dry it out and reassembles it. the unit turns on and seems to be operational, exxpect that it no longer is reacting to any stylus prompts...the directional arrows power on / off and the "a" and "b" buttons all work. Is there a way to better determine what is not working and or get the screen replaced?

    the batteries went dead and so i changed them but when i replaced the old batteries with the new ones the touch pad stopped responding to the stylus. arrow keys and "A" and "B" button work, but you can't choose your name for the sign on.

    Not 12 hours after opening his Leapfrog Leapster 2, my 3 year old son decides that the screen is dirty and takes it upon himself to wash it under the faucet. After drying it out, it will turn on and all buttons are functional except for the touch screen. The screen looks like there is water in it and I can't figure out how to dry it out or take it apart. Is there a way to remove water from the screen itself?

Did you try to recallibrate it? Hold the "hint" button down while you're turning it on. Then hit "A" when the new screen comes up. You'll touch all four corners and the center with the stylus. See if it works!

Ensure NO GAME is in unit
Power Unit off
