Question about Leapster Learning System

Open Question

There is no volume on the leapster 2

Even though the volume is turned all the way up there is no sound. I put new batteries and tried it with a fully charged battery back but no luck! Is there a mute button? Help!

SOURCE: How do I get the batter cover off a Leapster?!?!?!?!?

If the battery compartment lid is not sliding out after you have loosened the screw, press the coin in the gap created from what short distance it did slide, and use the coin to force the battery compartment forward. Mine was really stuck, and this did the trick after some serious effort.

There are two buttons on the Botttom of the leapster. One is brightness one is dark. You probably turned it to dim.

I gave my son a leapster explorer about a month now and it's volume just stopped working and it wont hear anything.


Hello,
there are three basic reasons why the leapster explorer won't bring out sound.
1. Defective speaker
The speaker of your leapster explorer maybe defective, this can make it not bring out any sound. Disassemble the leapster explorer, check the speaker part, test the speaker with a AA battery. If you hear any sound using the battery, then it means there is nothing wrong with the speaker.
2. Loose wire connection
Disassemble the leapster explorer, check the wires connecting the speaker to the board. Check for any wire cut, or loose connection which can cause the speaker not to bring out sound. . 3. Sound IC/Card/Board
If non of the above is the cause of the problem, then it means the leapster explorer is having a defective sound ic/board/card. There is an IC on the board of the leapster explorer which is responsible for sound. If this ic has a shot, there won't be any sound. If this be the cause, I think it's high time to took the leapster explorer to a repairman because this requires skill.
I hope the above is clear. If not, please let me know for further assistance.
Regards.

My son's Leapster Explorer suddenly has no sound. If you hit the increase sound button, nothing happens. If you hit the decrease button you see the volume bar on the bottom of the page. Do you know...


I had same problem, just fixed it by a little hack. The volume up switch is broken.
1. Remove accessory door on bottom. 2. Remove all screws on back. 3. Open back cover.
Looking at the exposed board, there are 2 volume switches (back to back). Directly next the switches are four contacts: the upper 2 are for volume down, the lower 2 are for volume up.
4. Place the battery pack on the board and hold it down. 5. Press the power button to turn on the unit. 6. Use a small wire to jump the volume up contacts multiple times to change the volume to maximum (or desired level). 7. (Optional) Remove the volume buttons and throw away the rubber cushions to prevent the volume from changing. 8. Replace everything back in place.

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! :)
