Question about LeapFrog Leapster Learning Game System
When I turn on the new leapster, The screen has the following message "Rarely, flashes can trigger photosensitive seizures. Read Parent Guide Warnings and Cautions before play. The screen won't advance from that...

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.

We have the same problem and our leapster is only 2 days old.Do Touch
Screen Calibration,it should help.I do it everytime for my son when he
wants to play and it does help...But once u turn leapster off,u'll have
to calibrate it again next time...
Just hold down hint button while turning on.When the Leapster menu screen appears,press the A button.Touch each of the crosshairs that appear with the stylus.restart unit. ..That what we do everytime.

Turn off the Leapster2 and remove cartridge (if there is one).
Push and hold down the hint button (the one with the question mark) while the game is off.
Turn the Leapster on while still holding down the hint button until you see the calibration screen.
Push the "A" button to enter the calibration.
There will be a little plus sign. Touch it with the stylus and continue to touch the plus signs with the stylus until you return to the calibration screen.
Turn the Leapster off and then back on again without a cartridge. Login as usual.
If this does not work, then call customer service, depending on how old it is. I've had ours for over a year, and this still works each time.
