Leapster 2 will shut off right after the "important" screen

We bought my daughter a Leapster 2 for Christmas and it was working fine. Now, when she turns it on it will immediately shut off after the "important" screen. We have changed the batteries several times, but now I am stuck and don't know what to do.

Thanks! BADA

    I also got a leapster 2 for my daughter at Christmas and the screen dims then shuts off immediately. We need advice. That is a LOT of money for a toy that only worked a month and a half!

    I too have the same problem with my sons leapster 2 that i bought him for christmas. I've tried new batteries and have even tried it using an ac adapter but it continues to switch itself off right after the "important" screen. NOT HAPPY. i had a look inside the leapster, but i didnt notice anything wrong.

    I had the same problem with my son's Leapster 2 that was bought for Christmas. Only, we can get past warning screen to 'log-in' screen, but no further. We've changed the batteries several times, but there is no change. My son is extremely unhappy, but what can I do???

    i bought my son a leapster 2 for his birthday two weeks ago and is was working fine but now the warning screen comes up then it cuts off this is outragous there has to be a solution to this problem. And why is it so many people with the same problem with no answer makes no sense they need to do something.

    My grandson's leapster 2 with shutting off & a screen comes up for you to pick USA or Canada & the leapster will not allow me to do anything about picking USA. The leapster freezes at this point and just repeats the same message over & over about choosing your country. This was purchased at xmas 2008.

Just called Leap Frog and apparently this is a common problem (defective screen). As long as it was purchased within a year they will replace it for free. They ask you when and where you bought it. (You have to pay to send the broken one back it was like $5). Hope this helps.

Hello. My daughter's Leapster 2 sound has stopped working. She has only had it brand new since Christmas. Can it be fixed?


Have you tried putting new batteries? If yes and still has no sound then look for the warranty and bring it back to the store where you bought it so they can repair it for free.

We have 3 Leapsters. The old green model and 2 newer models. Our green one started doing that not long after having it. But it still works and if it shuts off, then we just turn it back on again. When I called up c/s for Leapster, they sort of make it difficult to return. And then I was not promised a new one, but it could be new or refurbished. I let it go. Now w/ the 2 new models, I believe this has happened. I've questioned if my kid's are accidentally hitting the power button. I have seen the green one power off before. I purchased the $10 plug in's. So worth it. No more batteries. And we haven't had any issues. So perhaps it is the batteries. Call up Leapster though and see what they have to say. Good luck! :)

Leapster 2 will shut off right after the "important" screen


Are you using it with a game? Will it stay on if NO game cartridge is in & are U able to access & play Pre-installed games?

If so, it may be the cartridge is DIRTY. I discovered this with our Leapster 2. What works for us is getting a Q-TIP & RUBBING ALCOHOL, you want to saturate Q-tip with the rubbing alcohol & clean the CARTRIDGE (NOT the Hand held ).

You want to clean the computer chip @ the bottom by inserting Alcohol soaked Q-tip on each side of contact strip (the part that inserts into the hand held) & with the dry end of Q-tip go over it again, for more cleaning & to wipe up any EXCESS Alcohol. REPEAT this process until Q-TIP comes back CLEAN.

I was really surprised @ ALL the BLACK grime that came off cartridge.

I hope this helps.

Good Luck.

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.
