Question about LeapFrog Leapster Electronic Book: Spider-Man (30425) for PC, Mac
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,
for leaster 2 -
turn off unit, take out cartridge.
hold the hint button, turn unit on.
press A button, touch the stylus on all the cross hairs that appear.
power unit off when done.
power back up.
(got these from the leapfrog site and it worked for me!)

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.

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.

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.

Tips for a great answer:
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.
