    I am now searching for the answer to fix this as well.  It boots up to the sign on screen and then doesn't respond to name selection with the pen.

Turn leapster2 off. Press and hold question mark button, then turn on leapster2. Keep holding the question mark button until you get a screen that says "touch calibration" on the right. Once you get this screen, let go of question mark button. Press the "A" button to select touch calibration. A small "+" will appear in one corner -- touch it with the pen. Repeat this for all four corners and then the middle. You have re-calibrated the pen. You can then turn the leapster2 off and then on again to play.

If you have tried this and the pen still doesn't work, change the batteries and repeat steps above.

We have a Leapster 2 which the screen no longer registers when touched by the pen. Can this be fixed or replaced? i bought it only 2 months ago hope you can help Emma


I posted a solution to this problem a couple months ago. We have the Cars edition of the Leapster2. I'm guessing it was the same problem that we were having. When the pen touched the screen there was no response and the unit had barely been used. Try this!! I found it on www.ehow.com.

  • If you touch your stylus pen to the screen of your Leapster2 and it does not respond, your unit needs to be calibrated. To do this, make sure no game cartridge is in the unit. Turn the unit on while you are holding down the "Hint" or "?" button. Keep holding the button down until the Leapster2 menu appears. You will need to turn off the unit and repeat these steps if you do not see the menu. When the menu comes onto the screen, press the "A" button and use the stylus pen to touch each of the crosshairs as they appear. When you are done, your unit should be properly calibrated.

    You can try calibrating the stylus pen. Hope this works :) Here are step by step instructions straight from the Leapster2 website:

    If your Leapster2 does not respond to the stylus pen, it needs to be calibrated. Calibrating the Leapster2 is easy:

    1) Ensure that a game cartridge is not inserted in the Leapster2

    2) Hold down the Hint (?) button while turning the unit on. Continue to hold the Hint button down until the LEAPSTER2 menu appears. Remember that you need to hold the "Hint" button down the whole time while you are pressing the power button, and releasing it.
