If the cartridges can be removed, pull them out and try spraying an electronic contact cleaner, power off, and make sure it is safe for plastics, onto the cartridge pins. Then, Gently, slide the cartridge in and out of the socket several times to clean both the socket and cartridge. May have to do this a couple of times.

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.

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.

Take the cartridge out of the Leapster, blow into the opening with your mouth. Do the same with the Leapster (blow into it). Insert the cartridge and see if that works.
