It needs Calibrated! Very easy to do. Push and hold the "?" while turning it on. Let go of the power button but keep the "?" held down. It will bring you to a screen and on the upper right side you will see a blue "Calibrate" option so press A. Then with the pen just hit the "x"'s you will see appear. After that's done restart your leapster by pressing and holding down the power button. Leapster will turn off and then release the power button after it's off and it will automatically turn back on. Problem will be fixed!

Leapster 2 does not respond to the sylus.


I had the same problem. I tried to clean it, brush out crumbs, gently "bleed" it and so on until I saw Quebol96's answer to the same problem: www.fixya.com/support/t3077478-leapster_will_not_recognize_pen_first

Quebol96's solution worked perfectly!

From Quebol96:
Answer If your Leapster2 does not respond to the stylus pen, it needs to be calibrated. Calibrating the Leapster2 is easy:
1) Ensure that a cartridge is not inserted 2) Hold down the Hint (?) button while turning the unit on. Continue to hold the Hint button down until the LEAPSTER menu appears. 3) When the LEAPSTER menu screen appears, press the A button 4) Touch each of the crosshairs that appear with the stylus 5) Restart unit

My Leapster 2 comes on, shows the name on screen & ask to touch my name w/ the pen; however when I touch the name, nothing happens. It keeps asking to touch a name or "guest".

Hi... I have a leapster whose stylus and screen aren't responding well to each other. For example, in color corral, you can color at the top of the screen, but can't select any tool changes at the bo


Call up Leapster (c/s I reached was not in USA) and they will have you send in your Leapster and send you back a new or refurbished one. I was told this a few years ago, but never mailed it in. We had an issue with it shutting off, but seems to be ok? The kid's don't complain.
