Hi!
Have you tried to use a small vacuum pump. Please be careful. Try to use minimum force/vacuum power.
Hope this helps.
Thanks!

LCD screen lights up then goes dark. I do have audio and have tried new batteries. I have also change the game cartridge. Now what?


seems like a bad connection inside maybe the ribbon cable is a little loose (from being dropped, movement from playing etc...) if its under warranty i'd send it in to get fixed if its not then you have nothing to lose taking it apart yourself (with no power supplied to it of course) and see if you can find anything loose. If the game is still visible and the wires are seperate i would check the ones leading to your backlight.

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


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.

Is there a site from where i can download games for Leapster2 ?


Dont know about you're first question. But the leapster 2 uses non High Capacity SD cards (it can not read them) so you are limited to 2 GB max.

Leapster with broken pen


My daughter did the same thing to the tip of her Leapster 2 stylus. I called Leap Frog at 1-800-701-5327 and was able to order a replacement stylus directly from them on credit card for $5.00 shipped.

I also took her old stylus and sanded the broken tip down with 100 grit and then 220 grit sandpaper to get rid of the sharp, cracked point and it works just fine. I figure I'll keep the sanded one as a spare in case she does something silly with it again.

Leapster broken black wire.


Hi,
Black is usually negative Or nuetral, so your assumption would be correct.
As for the cicuit Board end or PCB Side, i,d look to see where the Red from the battery goes on to the Motherboard. Observe the Size of the Solder Spot, and the Black Should be in Close Proximity to that. To be more sure, if you desolder, the spot.
And put a magnet on the desoldered/Solder. any remnants of metal strands, from the broken Wire, will magnetise.
As solder is mainly non-conductive. Tin/Lead.
If there are no visible signs, of the Black-Wire being adjacent to the Red. Look On The Opposing side of the Board.
The Additional Hint Here, Is to gauge by the length of the Wire.
Hope This Is A Fixya For You.
Mike @ Compurepair.

Leapster L-Max with No Sound


We had the same problem and I found the speaker was broken. Radio Shack part # 273-0092 is almost a direct replacement. Under $4 and works like new now.
