Leapster L-Max touch screen issues

Good Morning. I saw your post concerning the touch screen issues you were having with your Leapster L-Max system. We have the same exact issue. The screens touch sensor does not correlate to where you touch and the calibration does not work. Were you able to resolve the issue and if so what was the solution.
Thanks in advance,
Chris

    My son's L-Max also is having problems with the touch screen. You try to click on a game and it picks something else on the screen. Very frustrating for a 5 year old to understand!

    I agree, this is very frustrating. My leapster L max touch screen also does not work correctly. help!!! The screen does not always work. it seems like it is the top and the bottom of the screen. I guess it is the common areas.

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

Just called Leap Frog and apparently this is a common problem (defective screen). As long as it was purchased within a year they will replace it for free. They ask you when and where you bought it. (You have to pay to send the broken one back it was like $5). Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Leapster L-Max with No Sound

We had the same problem and I found the speaker was broken. Radio Shack part # 273-0092 is almost a direct replacement. Under $4 and works like new now.

SOURCE: Screen calibration doesn't work on Leapster 2.

CALIBRATION - summary of hints from here that eventually got our circa 2007 green leapster's screen recalibrated - in no particular order: 1) "home+hint+B" to get started, 2) "A" button next, 3) cleaned dirt from the gap between the plastic and the screen all the way around with a toothpick (seemed to be the KEY ELEMENT to get everything else to work), 4) be patient and keep trying until you see the targets - the first one should appear in the top left corner while the text is still on the screen, 5) if it doesn't work just right the first time try again, 6) unit should beep each time you press a target center.

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.

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

My Leapster 2 comes on, shows the name on screen & ask to touch my name w/ the pen; however when I touch the name, nothing happens. It keeps asking to touch a name or "guest".

How do I delete a name from Leapster? I bought it used.


Question How do I delete or change a player name on Leapster™ cartridges? trnsp.gif Answer It is possible to remove a player once you have added three player names to the cartridge. If there is a name on the cartridge that you want to remove, take these steps.

1- Add new players until there are three players on the cartridge.

2- Once you have three players on the cartridge, an "X" will appear below each player's name.

3- Touch the "X", then touch the name of the player you want to delete. Touch "Yes" to delete the name. Then add a new name, or touch OK twice to go back to the sign-in screen without adding a name. Two names will always remain on the cartridge.

Leapster screen not working


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.
