Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console
Hi i have a leapster but it wont switch on I also have no manual if i could just find the manual id sort it out Hi, jimz4 here, I also have same problem with Leapster not powering up, have new batteries, cleaned connections, used the rechargable station battery pack, nothing worked, it turns on but does no power to a screen to play. Please help with kids xmas gift!
First let me say there was some confusion here. The question you posted was under the category of Playstation 2. Sweet_rascal apparently didn't realize you were talking about a Leapster not a PS2, so please disregard his comments. It's likely he doesn't have any experience with the Leapster. I have 2 young girls at home, however, so I am very familiar with it.
One thing you can try - if it gets that far, is recalibrating it:
Insert a cartridge, turn the unit on and wait for the sign-in screen to appear.
Hold down the Home, Hint and B buttons simultaneously.
When the screen changes, press the A button.
Using the Stylus, touch the center of the targets.
See if that helps at all, though I'm not sure it will from your description of the problem. But, it's somewhere to start. I'm looking for more information now.

If the light goes green for a very short period before going red again it means theres a short on the circuit board. u can try and find the problem but because the circuitry is very small, it wont be easy to find. only other solution is to buy a new circuit board :(

Leapster L-Max recalibrates differently. I was trying to use the instructions and it kept asking for a blue button. For the Leapster L-Max push B, A, Hint, and Home when you turn it on. Do not have a cartridge in the player or it will think it is a regular Leapster. Once it says calibrate screen it will say to press A, then wait until a target appears in the upper left hand corner, touch it and you should hear a sound, then a new target appears in the lower left hand, repeat actions, then lower right hand screen, and finally the upper right hand screen. If it stops at any time and doesn't get more arrows, try it again or turn it off and see if the pen works. It may take several times to get it working again.
