SOURCE: Leapster 2 will shut off right after the "important" screen

Are you using it with a game? Will it stay on if NO game cartridge is in & are U able to access & play Pre-installed games?

If so, it may be the cartridge is DIRTY. I discovered this with our Leapster 2. What works for us is getting a Q-TIP & RUBBING ALCOHOL, you want to saturate Q-tip with the rubbing alcohol & clean the CARTRIDGE (NOT the Hand held ).

You want to clean the computer chip @ the bottom by inserting Alcohol soaked Q-tip on each side of contact strip (the part that inserts into the hand held) & with the dry end of Q-tip go over it again, for more cleaning & to wipe up any EXCESS Alcohol. REPEAT this process until Q-TIP comes back CLEAN.

I was really surprised @ ALL the BLACK grime that came off cartridge.

I hope this helps.

Good Luck.

The pen on my sons leapfrog leapster won't work


Push the "A" button to enter the calibration.
There will be a little plus sign. Touch it with the stylus and continue to touch the plus signs with the stylus until you return to the calibration screen.
Turn the Leapster off and then back on again without a cartridge.

Leapster wont switch on


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 :(

The Leapster turns on and the sign in screen comes up but the touch screen does not work. Recalibrating does not work. Can't get past the sign in screen


How did you try recaibrating? I just fixed my son's Leapster 2 a few minutes ago. I read a couple different recalibration instructions and the one that works for the Leapster 2 is:
1-Hold down the (?) Hint button while turning on the system.
2-Keep holding it down until the Leapster menu shows up
3-Let it go and press the A button
4-Touch each crosshairs x with the pen tip
5-When it goes back to the menu screen, restart the unit

Leapster 2 wont work


You need to calibrate the touch screen - hold down the ? button and a menu will come up, go to 'touch/calibrate'-red dots will appear on the screen in the corners then in the middle and you have to touch the centre of them with the pen to line up the screen again - turn off and again and it should be fine - hope this helps xx

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.
