SOURCE: Every time my son tries to play the cartridge game

if you contact Leapfrog they will replace it for you, they seem to know the problem exists and instead of recalling it they are just replacing them if/when consumers call in. We have had the same problem with previous versions of the Leaspter.

SOURCE: My daughter has a Leapster 2 (pink) hand held

Remove the game cartridge, while holding down the button with the "?" turn the unit on. Then the screen should tell you to press the "A" to calibrate the stylus. Finish the calibration by touching the crosshair when it appears. After I did this everything was fine. Good luck ....thaks to Nicksdad who posted this response to a previous post. Worked for me...try it.

You have to make sure that your Cartridges is clean. Try to vacum of blow both of the cartridge hole and also the place where you put the cartridge, Sometime very small tiny dirt will makes that the cartridge cannot be recognise by the console.

Instead of 1 starter game and a few demo game that you get from Leapfrog Connect, you can also get more downloadable games for your Leapster 2. You can get it here:

The pen has stopped working when touching the screen


If your Leapster 2 will turn on, but the touch screen is not responding to the stylus, try re-calibrating the stylus with the screen using the steps below: 1. Turn your Leapster 2 off, and remove the game cartridge.
2. Hold down the 'hint' button while the game is off. The 'hint' button is the middle small button in the row of three above the directional pad on the left, with a '?' on it.
3. With your finger still firmly on the 'hint' button, turn the Leapster 2 back on. Keep your finger on the 'hint' button.
4. The screen should be displaying the calibration screen. You can release the 'hint' button now.
5. Press the 'A' button on the right to enter the calibration screen.
6. A small '+' sign will appear on the screen. Touch it with the stylus. A new '+' sign will appear. Touch this with the stylus too, and repeat for as many '+' signs as your Leapster 2 throws at you.
7. The screen will return to the calibration screen. You can now turn the machine off. Leave the cartridge out of the console, and turn it back on.
8. Your stylus and touch screen should now be working, enabling you to sign in as usual.
9. If it is working correctly then you can turn it off, add a game cartridge and turn it back on

I have a problem with Leapster Explorer. After


You have to keep clicking the arrow underneath the message. Each time your child plays, you earn 60 tokens or whatever. You have to click through all of those messages until you can play. It's confusing, because all of the messages or the same, but keep clicking that right arrow and eventually you'll be done!

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.

Batman Leapster Cartridge broken?


Take the cartridge out of the Leapster, blow into the opening with your mouth. Do the same with the Leapster (blow into it). Insert the cartridge and see if that works.
