    i have a leapster that only has sound on head phones.

    we think it needs a new speaker which would be fine if i could find any leapster spare parts - please help.

    Same problem. Happened only a few days after opening.

  • tinycork Jan 20, 2009

    New Leapster 2, less than one month old. Sound works just fine through headphones, but the speaker doesn't work anymore.

  • Anonymous Jan 24, 2009

    I have Leapster L-max only a month old, the sound only works on the tv.

  • adamomme Feb 11, 2009

    Same thing here. We couldn't figure out why the sound no longer works. It's frustrating - has anyone contacted the company yet. I of course have no receipt as it was a Christmas gift and it worked well when it was opened. Just stopped working later.

    Have only had our leaperster2 (Cars Special Edition) for 2 months and have the exact same problem - my son heard the sound getting "funny" and we actually heard the speakers fade from some "fuzzy" sounds into nothing. And now there's no sound at all. Very annoying and puzzling.

We had the same problem and I found the speaker was broken. Radio Shack part # 273-0092 is almost a direct replacement. Under $4 and works like new now.

Leapster 2 showing white screen


I'm really not sure at this point -- there aren't to many things you can do with a leapster to fix the display....how old is it? Wondering if Leapster will do anything for you if it's too old to exchange at a store. Typically screens turn white if they need to be refreshed OR if they have overheated or been left in a car or a hot place -- because the lcd gets messed up in extreme heat. Wished I could help you more then that...but calling leapster sounds like your only option right now..unless exchanging at the store is possible.

My daughter has used her Leapster twice and now there is no sound


there might be a problem with the internal sound chip. It may have been scratched or broken.

Truthfully, I think the best way to solve this problem is to buy another unit, or call the company's technical support for a replacement.

Is there a site from where i can download games for Leapster2 ?


Dont know about you're first question. But the leapster 2 uses non High Capacity SD cards (it can not read them) so you are limited to 2 GB max.

Leapster 2 Doesn't Recognize Stylus


Hold the hint button (question mark) when turning on the device. When the device turns on, do the stylus calibration and touch each of the crosshairs that shows up. After you are finished restart the leapster and you should be fine.

Leapster can't read input


You need calibration
Touch Screen Calibration is as:
1.) Ensure that a cartridge is NOT inserted.
2.) Hold down the Hint (’?') button while turning the unit on.
3.) When the LEAPSTER menu screen appears, press the ‘A’ button.
4.) Touch each of the crosshairs that appear with the stylus.
5.) Restart the unit.

Brand new leapster no picture has sound but display is blank


Calling LeapFrog right now for the same problem.

First, they suggested cleaning the battery contacts.
Now they're stepping us through recalibrating the screen.
Now they're asking where and when we purchased it.

Answer - take it back to the store.

Leapfrog gave us the only solution to return and get a new one since we did have the receipt.
