I found this on there site and the 45 second "re-set" worked!

First, be sure that you have replaced the old batteries with fresh ones (we do not recommend rechargeable batteries in our products).
Second, if your product has a "Reset" button, try using that.
Third, try removing all of the batteries and holding down the "ON" button for about 45 seconds. Then replace the batteries (be sure they are fresh) and try your product again.
If your product still does not work properly, please contact our Consumer Services Department at 800.521.2010 in the U.S. and 877.352.8697 in Canada. They will be able to issue a return authorization and advise you of any replacement/repair fees. Please do not return any merchandise to us without a return authorization. Consumer Services hours in the U.S. are Monday thru Friday, 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM, Central Standard Time and in Canada, Monday thru Friday, 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM, Central Standard Time.

When I turn the console on, the logo pops up an says "V Smile Motion." However, if I put a game in and turn it on, it does absolutely nothing.

This worked for me!
Ttry removing all of the batteries or unplugging the power cord..and holding down the "ON" button for about 45 seconds. Then replace the batteries (be sure they are fresh) and try your product again. It is somewhat of a "hidden" Re-Set button.

V tech new item..motion console..worked..turned it off turned it on..wont work

make surt you did the steps in the right order. Start with the TV and Vsmile OFF.
step 1) put the cartridge in and make sure it's all the way in
step 2) turn the TV on
step 3) turn the Vsmile on
if it still doesn't work, try taking the batteries out or unplug the adapter to let it clear and then try the steps again.

My daughters v. smile will not turn on

The ac adaptor has to be set to the correct voltage , there should be a small adjuster on the mains plug.
1.5v for each battery ( regardless of battery size ); so 6v for a 4 battery , 9v for 6 battery , etc.

1 Answer console - picture jumping up and down on 37" LCD screen

I found this with ours and I bought a new system and the AC adapter to go with the new system batteries were getting crazy anyhow the kids hooked up the old one to the vsmile adapter and it stopped. So from experience you need fresh batteries or only the vsmile 9v adapter, other brand adapters also caused the jumping!

V smile pocket problems

Do you still have your receipt? You could try to echange it at the store. Vsmile is coming out with a newer slightly different handheld model you could try. Though, we have a vsmile for the home and a leapster as a handheld game. Which both of my children have loved. Have you tried calling Vtech about the problem? I've had to call before about the home unit and they were very helpful. (Incedently, I have had problems with that, so if you ever do here's a helpful tip: Reset the machine by unplugging EVERY cord and pressing the two front buttons together for one full timed minute! We were having problems with a power issue and this solved it) They may be just as helpful as Leapster's Leap Frog company and send you a replacement! Once on a long car trip my daughter got sick in the car, while playing, so needless to say the game system got it too. And when I called Vtech about what to do, they sent a replacement! Try calling Vtech and see. You never know! Good luck!! :)
