    I've had 2 of the units do this now ! very frustrating. I'd switch to a different system, but then we'd have to buy all new games too. There must be a defect in their product

I bought my children the V-tech smiles gaming system, it's been put away for 6 months tried to plug it in today, the controller won't work. any suggestions.

does the controler take batterys make sure controler is pluged in all the way if all else fails maybe a damaged wire under the plastic since the controler is not wireless the little wires under the plastic are prone to breaking it may have a warranty to it there should be a number on the box or station itself

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.

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!! :)
