Question about Vtech V.Smile Adapter

2 Answers

V-smile crashed 7 days after I baught my son a V-smile, it shut down on him. I monitor his play time and have given him the opportunity to use your product while in the house or car and only when I am around. He has treated his game with respect, but , while on a road trip, it began to shut off. After pushing the on button, the game would make the initial prompt sound and shut off again. After several times, it did nothing! I replaced the batteries and luck. Please let me know if there is a solution to this issue. I really cannot afford to buy a new system. Please contact me via e-mail at or by phone (318)789-5570. Thank you, Jamie Norton

    I really can't afford to spend any more money on something that may not be effective. Does this product not come with a manufacter's warranty? If not, guarantee I will never purchase anything from this company again. Please consider that I have spent about $75.00 on less than 8 hours on entertainment! Work with me please!

Our daughter got one last christmas, after 6 months or so, it has stopped working. It was a present from grandama and I don't think it has a warranty, certainly no receipt can be found. It's very dissapointing and I have heard from other parents who bought this V-Smile that theirs just stopped working too for no reason. We thought it was the batteries, so kept buying more, then we got the adaptor, still won't work. Now and then it works, but not often.

Remove all Smartridges, controllers, adapter or batteries.
Examine the Smartridge slot for loose objects, Blow into it to
remove dust or debris.
Pull back the plastic sleeve on the Smartridge and clean both sides
of the metal contact with alcohol and a cotton swab.
Insert the Smartridge into the Smartridge slot and remove quickly twice without turning on the V.Smile unit.

This should fix the problem.

V smile pocket wont turn on

If you remove the battery door on the back above where the batteries are inserted there are 2 little buttons with the batteries removed press both buttons at the same time re-insert the batteries and the game should turn on. I am not sure if this is a system re-start but I find that some of out games are pretty beat and maybe they are causing the game to shut down. If it shuts off I preform this task and try a different game and it usually works it is kind of a pain but at least from what I can tell it must be something in the games themselves - maybe they just wear out after hours of play time.
