Well this is technical wear and tear bug. Its either something wrong with the game ( So Return it) or The Leapster (return that). You could also try switching the batteries maybe?

Leapster wont switch on


if the light goes green for a very short period before going red again it means theres a short on the circuit board. u can try and find the problem but because the circuitry is very small, it wont be easy to find. only other solution is to buy a new circuit board :(

New batteries installed and leapster learned will not turn on. Is there any way to reset it? I even tried new/different batteries that are brand new. We have an 11 hour trip tomorrow!!! Ahhh...


With new batteries the leapster should of turned on. Take the batteries out and look on the contacts inside where the batteries would normally go. See if there any corrosion or anything sticking to the contacts. If it is then clean it with a rag and glass cleaner and then try new batteries again, if it doesn't work then you know the mainboard inside is bad. Also if nothing is on the contacts and you know for sure the batteries are new then the mainboard would still be the culprit. At that point you would have to buy a new leapster because there is no parts available for it. If its under warranty bring it back to the store where you got it so they can get you another one.

I have leapster l-max and am having trouble with the stylus working. when i try to calibrate, i can't click on center targets


Leapster L-Max recalibrates differently. I was trying to use the instructions and it kept asking for a blue button. For the Leapster L-Max push B, A, Hint, and Home when you turn it on. Do not have a cartridge in the player or it will think it is a regular Leapster. Once it says calibrate screen it will say to press A, then wait until a target appears in the upper left hand corner, touch it and you should hear a sound, then a new target appears in the lower left hand, repeat actions, then lower right hand screen, and finally the upper right hand screen. If it stops at any time and doesn't get more arrows, try it again or turn it off and see if the pen works. It may take several times to get it working again.

The touch pen doesn't work


Answer
I had the same problem and here is the answer I found at leapfrog.com which fixed my daughter’s disney princess leapster 2’s problem. Good luck!
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

How do I delete a name from Leapster? I bought it used.


Question How do I delete or change a player name on Leapster™ cartridges? trnsp.gif Answer It is possible to remove a player once you have added three player names to the cartridge. If there is a name on the cartridge that you want to remove, take these steps.

1- Add new players until there are three players on the cartridge.

2- Once you have three players on the cartridge, an "X" will appear below each player's name.

3- Touch the "X", then touch the name of the player you want to delete. Touch "Yes" to delete the name. Then add a new name, or touch OK twice to go back to the sign-in screen without adding a name. Two names will always remain on the cartridge.
