If you press the power button and the home button at the same time, count to ten while holding them down together, then let the buttons go after a count of ten, then press the power button, it should turn on. this is a reset for the leappad. most times works in most cases.

My LeapFrog LeapPad Explorer sound is not working

I'm actually on the phone now with customer service, for the same issue.

The rep asked me to plug in earphones / earbuds and rotate the phone 260 degrees 2 times and turn it on.
I did and I have sound, thru the earphones.... but none without them.
I'm on hold.... Hopefully they will get this resolved and fixed...
We purchased 2 of these leappads and while I love LeapFrog products, we've had a LOT of trouble with them.

Ok, cs came back on the line and they are issuing a replacement one.
I have to deface this one, send a pic and they will send a replacement..

This will be the 2nd one they have had to send us, the first due to a cracked screen.

Leappad tuneup stuck at 5%

This toy sucks. I've had a really crappy year, but three months ago I had a good month and had a little extra to spare so I decided to buy, for Christmas the Leappads my two daughters had been asking for since last year's Christmas.

All good? NO! After being very excited and seeing the happiness on my two little girls's faces when they saw their gifts I was very happy with the way this year was ending. Until it came time to get a few "apps" and connect to the internet etc. with these things. Nothing works, no updates, no registrations, nothing. To add insult to injury, I've my proof of purchase for these two items has been lost and I now have to sit my two little kids down tomorrow to let them know that their "dream gifts" are useless and may remain that way for the foreseeable future. I've plugged a lot of stuff into my computer and have never had any problems, until this little kid's toy came along and nothing works.

Way to go LeapFrog. I followed your instructions and am now stuck with two absolutely useless toys after spending the bulk of my Christmas day trying to get these stupid things to work!!!

3. now add the child you wanted to "reset" now switch mobigo from "family" to new child
4. plug mobigo into pc and the progress log should be reset

My sons mobigo touch and learn game says he has earned a new reward... where do i log in to download it?

Looks like it is a bit of a ploy to get the child's progress. You have to download the Learning Lodge Navigator and connect your son's device to the computer. It will download his progress. When you are done it will show some trophy icons on the login screen. That's the "reward."

Won't work with smartridge

Make sure the V.Smile is turned off before inserting the cartridge. If it is still acting funny:
Things you can try to get the V.Smile TV Learning System to work:
1) Press the Reset – Press and hold the ON button for about 10 seconds
2) Make sure the game is inserted far enough into the system, and that it is pointing in the right direction. You may occasionally need to clean the contacts.
3) Also, make sure you are using the supplied power cord/adapter, not batteries. Batteries cause more problems than they’re worth.
