    Your contrast setting has changed. Consult your manual to lighten it and your screen will be viewable again.

Leappad does not respond to stylus

It could be one of several things, a system reset, a firmware update but it sounds like a screen cable has become disconnected or similar fault. Before doing anything, is it still under warranty, if so its best to go back to the vendor or leapfrog and request an exchange. Here's the url to their support page.

If the warranty is out of date, then its down to dismantling the pad and looking for ribbon connectors which may have come adrift.

How do I graph y=18.4cos(2pi/365)(x-196) 5.8? It doesn't show up in the graph on my ti 83 calc

hiArguments are in an invalid order, try multiplying the 5.8 with the other two terms (2pi/365)(x-196) that way yo might be able to graph it.

LCD screen lights up then goes dark. I do have audio and have tried new batteries. I have also change the game cartridge. Now what?

seems like a bad connection inside maybe the ribbon cable is a little loose (from being dropped, movement from playing etc...) if its under warranty i'd send it in to get fixed if its not then you have nothing to lose taking it apart yourself (with no power supplied to it of course) and see if you can find anything loose. If the game is still visible and the wires are seperate i would check the ones leading to your backlight.

Leapster 2 showing white screen

I'm really not sure at this point -- there aren't to many things you can do with a leapster to fix the old is it? Wondering if Leapster will do anything for you if it's too old to exchange at a store. Typically screens turn white if they need to be refreshed OR if they have overheated or been left in a car or a hot place -- because the lcd gets messed up in extreme heat. Wished I could help you more then that...but calling leapster sounds like your only option right now..unless exchanging at the store is possible.

TI 83

Yes you can use it, here is the formula: Y= V(t+ (i/c))^(tc) V=amount put in, t=time, i=intrest rate, c= amount of times it is compounded.
(I know this because I have a TI-83 calculator)

Need to no how to find Type 1 error for statistics on TI 83 plus

Carry out the test. The calculator will display a p= value (or if you draw it - it will be the shaded area). This is the type one error. Why? Well if H0 is true then your t-test will come from this distribution. Think of the bell shape as a histogram - you have one value you are comparing to it. Is this value typical of this "histogram"? If the value is near the centre of the bell it is reasonable that it came from it. If it is in the extreme it probably didn't and so we reject H0. The type one error is the probability that we reject H0 given that it is true. H0 assumes the t value comes from this distribution - so it is the probability of getting this value or something more extreme. (i.e. the shaded area. Incidently this is the same way of finding the type one error for any test.

Brand new leapster no picture has sound but display is blank

Calling LeapFrog right now for the same problem.

First, they suggested cleaning the battery contacts.
Now they're stepping us through recalibrating the screen.
Now they're asking where and when we purchased it.

Answer - take it back to the store.

Leapfrog gave us the only solution to return and get a new one since we did have the receipt.
