    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.

    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.

Rockford Fosgate Power 1000 amplifier. (25 to life) When I turn it on there is almost no sound coming from speakers. I have to turn up the volume almost to max to hear something. But only very high...

turn or flip the LPF and sub sonic buttons to see if they will help.
there are other buttons called gain that you may have to turn to bring up the volume.
its very likely your eq buttons that you have to mess with to get it right. post up pics if you can.

I gave my son a leapster explorer about a month now and it's volume just stopped working and it wont hear anything.

there are three basic reasons why the leapster explorer won't bring out sound.
1. Defective speaker
The speaker of your leapster explorer maybe defective, this can make it not bring out any sound. Disassemble the leapster explorer, check the speaker part, test the speaker with a AA battery. If you hear any sound using the battery, then it means there is nothing wrong with the speaker.
2. Loose wire connection
Disassemble the leapster explorer, check the wires connecting the speaker to the board. Check for any wire cut, or loose connection which can cause the speaker not to bring out sound. . 3. Sound IC/Card/Board
If non of the above is the cause of the problem, then it means the leapster explorer is having a defective sound ic/board/card. There is an IC on the board of the leapster explorer which is responsible for sound. If this ic has a shot, there won't be any sound. If this be the cause, I think it's high time to took the leapster explorer to a repairman because this requires skill.
I hope the above is clear. If not, please let me know for further assistance.

I have leapster l-max and am having trouble with the stylus working. when i try to calibrate, i can't click on center targets

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.

Leapster screen not working

Apparantly, the Leapster screen issue is a common problem. While this suggestion is not ethical and since my game was near perfect condition, I went to Wal-Mart and bought a new one of the same color and then returned the broken one.
