Leapster LMAX touch screen calibration not working on center dot.. games not being able to read

We have an older model leapster LMAX I think its older because its bigger than the newer one we just bought, the touch screen was not working right, I read online how to callibrate it , the center dot does not change at all , which was the issue that was the reason for needing the callibration. It doesnt read games in it as well. Put in a game and no changes

    I can get to the calibration screen to come up but no target appears. The stylus is not working at all with the screen.

  • OsideMomof2 Aug 05, 2008

    Same thing is happening to us. Our Leapster L-Max is approx 2 years old and we can no longer calibrate the stylus. It cannot detect the lower left or the center dots. Therefore, any games that require the stylus are not working as 1/2 the screen can't be detected.

We have the same problem here ours is only 9 months old and have had problems with the screen from the begining. Now our center dot doesn't work either so we can't calibrate it so my poor son gets frustrated trying to play anything on it. I'm going to try and exchange it at walmart this week. I called them and they said to bring it in they'd have to look at it but they should be able to exchange it. Keep your fingers crossed for us and if it works I'll let ya'll know.

I have leapster l-max and am having trouble with the stylus working. when i try to calibrate, i can't click on center targets


Leapster L-Max recalibrates differently. I was trying to use the instructions and it kept asking for a blue button. For the Leapster L-Max push B, A, Hint, and Home when you turn it on. Do not have a cartridge in the player or it will think it is a regular Leapster. Once it says calibrate screen it will say to press A, then wait until a target appears in the upper left hand corner, touch it and you should hear a sound, then a new target appears in the lower left hand, repeat actions, then lower right hand screen, and finally the upper right hand screen. If it stops at any time and doesn't get more arrows, try it again or turn it off and see if the pen works. It may take several times to get it working again.

When my daughter touches any object with the pen nothing happens. It will keep telling you to touch a picture on the screen with your pen.


You need to recalibrate. Try pushing B, A, Hint, and Home when you turn it on. Do not have a cartridge in the player or it will think it is a regular Leapster. Once it says calibrate screen it will say to press A, then wait until a target appears in the upper left hand corner, touch it and you should hear a sound, then a new target appears in the lower left hand, repeat actions, then lower right hand screen, and finally the upper right hand screen. If it stops at any time and doesn't get more arrows, try it again or turn it off and see if the pen works. It may take a few tries to get it to recalibrate correctly.

Hello,

I had the same problem and here is the answer I found at leapfrog.com.

If your Leapster2 has this kind of problem, it needs to be calibrated.

Calibrating the Leapster2 is easy:

1) Ensure that a cartridge is not inserted

2) Hold down the Hint (?) button while turning the unit on. Continue to hold the Hint button down until the LEAPSTER menu appears.

3) When the LEAPSTER menu screen appears, press the A button

4) Touch each of the crosshairs that appear with the stylus

5) Restart unit

You can also visit the website for more information.

Good luck!

Touch screen is "uncalibrateable"


well, the only thing i can think of is to contact Nitendo and ask them, though i'm not sure thier service is free. Alternatively you can trade it in for a new one or Google this problem
