I have had the same problem twice now and Casio has sent me 2 new batteries. The 3rd battery is now doing the same thing. My advice...don't buy this camera.

You can jump start the battery by taking a piece of speaker wire (any wire) and contacting it to a 9-volt battery for 30-60 seconds. Make sure to contact the positive to positive and negative to negative, or you may short the battery. After jump starting it the battery should charge as normal.

We have the same problem and our leapster is only 2 days old.Do Touch
Screen Calibration,it should help.I do it everytime for my son when he
wants to play and it does help...But once u turn leapster off,u'll have
to calibrate it again next time...
Just hold down hint button while turning on.When the Leapster menu screen appears,press the A button.Touch each of the crosshairs that appear with the stylus.restart unit. ..That what we do everytime.

Absolutely. What sometimes happens is that carbon will build up on the cylinder head. Then when you try and start it you get a mini backfire and it knocks the carbon loose. The carbon get mashed under one of the valves and then you end up with no compression.
Here are a couple of things you can do to try and loosen it up. (Mind you that you will have to change oil after this and probably need a new spark plug.)
1. In a well ventilated area... preferrably outside and off the grass or any vegitation area, remove the spark plug and turn the engine until the piston is all the way to the top. (TURN OFF THE FUEL SELECTOR)
2. Then dump about 3 cap fulls of oit into the cylinder head via spark plug hole. (Cap from 1 qt small mouth oil bottle)
3. Pull starter cord slowly 2 times.
4. Fill the cylinder all the way to the top of the cylinder head / spark plug hole. Keep it full for about 10 minutes. Add more gas if you have to. The goal here is to soak the overhead valve seat with raw gas for a bit.
5. After 10 minutes... YANK the starter cord with ign off knowing full well your going to make a mess.
6. Add Fresh gas to cyl head (not full this time) and YANK the cord again.
7. Keep pulling cord until vapor / gas cloud stops exiting spark plug hole.
8. Install spark plug and check compression.
Good compression... Good deal.. CHANGE THE OIL because it leaked past the pistions rings during the soaking process.
Still no compression the head will have to be removed and the vavle seats hand lapped with grinding compound.
NOTE: Before turning on the ignition switch... and attempting an engine start make sure that the unit is not soaked in gas i.e do a good clean up job.
Thanks for using FixYa.
