Question about Vtech V.Smile Pocket
This is a brand new vtech pocket and when you put a game in the screen just blinks
I have had a similar problem with my kids' unit. In ours it appears that there is a metal brace in the game slot that has gotten warped. We must have left it in the car too many times. Anyway it didn't allow the games to drop completely into the slot and the machine wouldn't work. My redneck solution was to use a playing card to push the brace out of the way while putting in the game, and then removing the game. Works OK now.

I have the same issue with two of these units, and I find that leaving the power cable unplugged, plug the cart in, then plug the power in, sometimes it works. Sometimes you have to repeat this many times before it starts working. I am guessing it is a problem with the little card slot inside the unit, but not sure. Would be nice to have a better fix for this. Cleaning might help like retrocache said (maybe I will try that myself).

Here is wild stab in the dark
the Vtech is a cart based game
sometimes the contacts that are at the end of the cartridge and the hole in the machine may get a little dirt in them and stop the game from playing.
if you open the slot in the machine and blow in the slot you may dislodge any dirt
you can do this with the cartridge as well
if this fails you may want to clean the contacts with a cotton cloth with 100% alcohol (or CD lens cleaner)
I hope this helps.
