Question about Leapster 2 Handheld Game

Open Question

My Leapster 2 doesn't work with the cartridge games anymore - only works with the inbuilt games. I've had it for 3 years but it stopped working about 9months after I bought it. Is there anywhere I can take it to get looked at? Thanks, Diane

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: 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.

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
Thank you for using fixya! I hope I had helped you with your problem. May you have a good day!

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.

The touch screen does not work on leapster 2


Turn off the Leapster2 and remove cartridge (if there is one).
Push and hold down the hint button (the one with the question mark) while the game is off.
Turn the Leapster on while still holding down the hint button until you see the calibration screen.
Push the "A" button to enter the calibration.
There will be a little plus sign. Touch it with the stylus and continue to touch the plus signs with the stylus until you return to the calibration screen.
Turn the Leapster off and then back on again without a cartridge. Login as usual.
If this does not work, then call customer service, depending on how old it is. I've had ours for over a year, and this still works each time.
