Factory reset of leappad ultra

Download and install Leapfrog connect. If it doesn't download, there's an offline download option available. After installing it, connect your leappad ultra with the usb cable to the pc. power it on. it should get connected. If it doesn't maybe your anti virus software is blocking it. If this happens, go to your antivirus software settings and under firewall rules, select allow for leapfrog connect .exe. Then it should detect your leappad ultra. Go to left hand top corner , select My Products. Then select your leappad ultra. Then goto Settings on the right top corner and in the pop up, select Reset. It will take around 15 - 20 mins to reset it. All data will be erased.

The Eject button appears when a Leapster2 handheld is connected and turned on. When you have finished configuring the Leapster2 handheld and your child wants to play with it, you can click the Eject button to disconnect the device. Once ejected, a message will appear letting you know that it is safe to disconnect the Leapster2 handheld from the computer. It is not really a "button" but a picture of a green button which says "EJECT". It should be located on the upper right corner of your screen.

I own a toshiba 19dv500 and am having trouble viewing a dvd, the system is working but only in black and white, no colour\???

Hello there,

A black and white picture is most often due to a faulty or incorrect RGB (red/green/blue) connection or cable.

If you are using a composite connection (red/white/yellow RCA jacks), you have probably connected the yellow plug to a socket labelled Pr/Pb, Cr/Cb, or Y - on either the DVD player or the TV - most probably the TV. The yellow needs to be connected to a socket labelled "VIDEO". If you connect this to any socket labelled Pr/Pb, Cr/Cb, or Y, you will get a black and white picture.

If you are using a component connection (red/green/blue RCA jacks), one of the plugs is either not fully inserted into the socket or is in the wrong socket. If you remove any one of the R/G/B plugs, you will get a black and white picture.

If you are using a SCART cable (UK / AUS), you may have a bent, damaged or disconnected pin.

I suggest you check and correct the connections between your DVD player and TV. If you are unable to locate the problem, please try another cable as the one you are using may be damaged. If you are still unable to locate the fault, please let me know the brand and model number of the DVD player and how it is connected to the TV. If required, I can also draw a diagram showing the correct connections.

It would also be useful to know whether this "fault" suddenly occured, or whether you have just connected the player to the TV.

Hope this helps - please let me know if you need further assistance.

I got a leapfrog click start my first computer

yes there should be two parts. First there is the actual computer and the second is the base (where the games are connected to). The television should be set where you would usually watch a dvd/or play  a game(depending on what model tv) the computer is wireless so you can use it from the sofa etc. but you must have the base in order for the game to work. I just purchased one and my son loves it.
