We're having the exact same problem with our daughters iXL, she was playing with it all the sudden the screen went black so we changed the batteries. That didn't work so we got out the manual and it said to use a Q-tip to clean the battery connections and replaced the batteries (we even tried different types of alkalines). We tried to call customer service but they are only available from 6am-3pm Mon-Fri in our area which is bull**** some of us have jobs where our lunch is short and we can't spend it on the phone. I'm really mad that her favorite Christmas present is now a useless hunk of plastic.

    Hello it's Fightbackbio again!! I finally got a hold of Fisher-Price and they told me that certian batch of iXL's had gotten out that had a bug in the system. Some are fixable when you call they can walk you through a fix. If that does not work (which I suggest you say nothing is working as you do the "steps") they will send you an email that is a label to mail just the player that is malfunctioning back to them. MAKE SURE YOU TELL THEM THAT YOU WILL NOT PAY FOR POSTAGE TO SHIP IT BACK IT IS NOT, I REPEAT, NOT YOUR FAULT THE GAME IS NOT WORKING. Get your brand new player and watch your child enjoy it for what it is supposed to be.

    having this EXACT problem. It just happened today. We are very responsible with it too. I never let anyone other than my son play with his IXL and he is always supervised. I turned it on for him this evening and I got the initial start-up screen...then nothing....and it won't turn off. I've tried resetting it...I've tried changing out the batteries...nothing.

IXL handheld will not turn on. I've replaced the batteries, turned it off and on and tried to reset it but nothing happens. There is no picture on the screen.


We had a similar problem. Called Fisher Price and they tried to work with us over the phone to fix it. When it wouldn't work they shipped us a new one. There's a 1 year warranty on the handheld device. They will ask for the serial number on your device and will be able to tell when you bought it. Not sure if it's been less than a year but either way, they were great trying to help us over the phone.
Good luck!

I am trying to download the computer software disc that came with this iXL and it wont download. is there i way i can get it from a website?


Did you download the cd that came with the ixl product first? I broke mine all to pieces and am trying to download the Scooby Doo, but I think I need the other on the comp. first. Ughh! I just ordered a replacement CD for the IXL online...the one with the monkey on the front that comes with the hardware. I hope you have better luck than me!
