My daughter's Leapster 2 Handheld game's screen is dark. She cannot see any of her games that she tries to play. I tried using the brightening button, but it doesn't help. Also, have replaced the batteries...

are the batteries you are using the correct size/voltage for the leapster? I believe it takes 4 AA/LR6 size batteries at 1.5V each.
has the product been dropped or bashed?

When we inserted a new game cartridge (Pet Pals made for Leapster & Leapster 2) we get a question mark on the screen. We've changed the batteries and the old game cartridges are working fine. Please...

its not recognizing the game, contact is probably dirty. take an eraser and rub the contacts of the cartridge and get them super clean, blow out ALL the debris and that should fix it.
good luck!

Put new batteries and it won't come on

There are a number of possible reasons your toy may have stopped working. Sometimes it helps to clean the battery compartment with a dry cotton swab or cloth. Rub the gold contacts inside the battery compartment to release any dust or film. You can also use an eraser to 'erase' and clean the contacts. Once you have cleaned the contacts, please make sure to install new non-rechargeable batteries before turning your unit on.

If the toy still does not work, it may have been dropped or handled improperly

The batteries went dead and I replaced them with all new batteries and the Leapster still is not working? The games has not been damaged or dropped. We have only used it maybe a couple of times before it...

first you have to try to turn off the unit and disconnect all connections.. just leave the unit turn off for an hour (no power). and reinstall again the unit, then switch it ON...

Let me know.

Leapster screen not working

Apparantly, the Leapster screen issue is a common problem. While this suggestion is not ethical and since my game was near perfect condition, I went to Wal-Mart and bought a new one of the same color and then returned the broken one.
