To reset you V.Reader you remove the batteries and any story cartridge that may be in your device. Hold the power button for 5-10 seconds. If this doesn't work the device needs to be replaced :(. Hope this helps.

We have a VReader and the touch screen doesn't

Try calibrating the touch screen (means of doing this can be found in the user manual). If, after calibrating the screen the touch screen is no longer responsive, I'm afraid that the screen is "ka-put" and will require a repair or replacement.

Tried the recovery software on a SD card but it did not open the software

If you made the SD recovery on your computer through a sd slot or card reader it should work. You can't make the recovery sd through your vreader. Put it in the vreader while it is turned off, power it on and the vreader should start reprogramming. Then it will tell you to shut off your vreader and restart but make sure you take the sd card back out before restarting or it will just reprogram again, lol.

My grandaughter v-reader is stuck on calibration mode will not advance to activity screen. Has anyone come up with a sloution to this problem?

You have to go here, download, put the SD card into the computer, let it do it's thing - then, put the SD card into the VReader, let IT do IT'S thing, LOL, then take the SD card out of the VReader and it's done! Mine was stuck on the calibration screen as well, but this fixes it - you have to do this to set it all up correctly. It's part of the download process.

My daughters v reader gets stuck on a blue screen and wont turn off.

The blue screen seems to happen when you change the batteries (it's what happened to us). The blue screen indicates that there's a software problem, like when you boot up your computer and for some reason it freezes up. That software needs to be reinstalled. You'll lose anything that was saved on the v.reader, but at least you'll get it working again.

vtech could have made it a very simple problem to solve just by adding in their customer support: Blue Screen? follow these steps. But they don't, so here's how:

You'll need an SD card with at least 64mo of free space. If you want to use the one from you camera, transfert all of your pictures first. Everything on the SD card will be erased.

Download the Recovery software from either link below (you can find both on the vtech website, but it took me a while to get there)

For the US version

For the Canadian english version

This is the link the the website itself:

Run the program and follow the instructions (at least those are clear and easy to follow). Mine worked fine after that. And since there's no reset button on the v.reader, this is the only way to erase the 100+ drawings that your child saved.

Broken v.reader

I have a VReader that won't turn on. I put new batteries in, and also tried connecting it with the cord, but it still won't turn on. Is there a way to fix it, or can it be replaced if it is within a year of purchase?

Hope that helps

My trans is stuck in second gear. Is that what

The town and country vans are know for transmission problems and it would not be stuck in 2nd gear if it was in limp mode. Limp mode typically controls the engine. I have seen people do a transmission flush/filter and add lucas to temporary fix the problem. There is also a good chance that the transmission has a solenoid problem preventing it from shifting into any other gears but second. Hope this helps!
