Leapster screen not working

I bought the Leapster L-max for my daughter which worked fine for about 6 months. The sound and games work fine except you can't see anything on the screen. If you use the pen and touch the screen it works you just can't see what you are doing. I have tried the buttons on the machine which I believe might be the brightness control but it doesn't seem to do anything. Any help would be appreciated.

    Everything on my daughter's year old Leapster works fine except the screen has no image. She's quite careful with it so I don't think it was from a fall or kid-abuse.

    I bought this two weeks ago and my daughter has used it once. Today she tried to use it and the screen stayed blue. Everything else worked but you cant see anything except the blue screen.

Apparantly, the Leapster screen issue is a common problem. While this suggestion is not ethical and since my game was near perfect condition, I went to Wal-Mart and bought a new one of the same color and then returned the broken one.

My daughter has a Leapster 2 that is only about 2 months old and the touch screen does not work

I had the same problem and here is the answer I found at which fixed my daughter’s disney princess leapster 2’s problem. Good luck!
If your Leapster2 does not respond to the stylus pen, 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

Touch screen and stylus pen not working

I just had the same problem and found a solution on another thread on this site. Clean the screen really well with Windex and dry it. Check all 4 edges for crumbs that might be lodged in there. I found one tiny crumb. I dislodged with a small nail file (gently!), wiped the screen off and then it worked! I didn't even bother recalibrating it. When I turned it on and went to the sign in screen, it was working fine. The original post also said to try "milking" the screen in case pressure had caused it to stick. Press gently with your thumb on the screen in various spots around the screen, then try again.

Leapster 2 will shut off right after the "important" screen

Are you using it with a game? Will it stay on if NO game cartridge is in & are U able to access & play Pre-installed games?

If so, it may be the cartridge is DIRTY. I discovered this with our Leapster 2. What works for us is getting a Q-TIP & RUBBING ALCOHOL, you want to saturate Q-tip with the rubbing alcohol & clean the CARTRIDGE (NOT the Hand held ).

You want to clean the computer chip @ the bottom by inserting Alcohol soaked Q-tip on each side of contact strip (the part that inserts into the hand held) & with the dry end of Q-tip go over it again, for more cleaning & to wipe up any EXCESS Alcohol. REPEAT this process until Q-TIP comes back CLEAN.

I was really surprised @ ALL the BLACK grime that came off cartridge.

I hope this helps.

Good Luck.
