The batteries went dead and I replaced them with new batteries and the game still does not work. It has not been dropped or damaged in any way? Could you please help or tell me how to get it fixed? Thank You!!

If you need to sync the device to the stylus just follow the steps below.<br /><br />1. Turn your <span>Leapster</span> 2 off, and remove the game cartridge<br /><br />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.<br /><br />3. With your finger still firmly on the 'hint' button, turn the <span>Leapster</span> 2 back on. Keep your finger on the 'hint' button.<br /><br />4. The screen should be displaying the calibration screen. You can release the 'hint' button now.<br />5. Press the 'A' button on the right to enter the calibration screen.<br /><br />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 <span>Leapster</span> 2 throws at you.<br /><br />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.<br /><br />8. Your stylus and touch screen should now be working, enabling you to sign in as usual.<br /><br />9. If it is working correctly then you can turn it off, add a game cartridge and turn it back on.<br /><br /><b>Thanks for <span>using</span> <span>Fixya</span></b>
if there is corrosion from old batteries, you will need to neutralize the acid. take an old toothbrush and some baking soda with a little bit of water and brush the coil and convex area of the copper connector.
Leapster will also offer you a new one at 1/2 the price if you agree to ship back your old broken one.
You will need to get their phone number off the net.
it is never going to work sorry .(why it's not going to work) because you left dead batteries in the toy for eight month and when you leave something that's not working in side a toy for longer than a month the thing or engine that controlls the toy take the enrgy of a dead battery and the engine is dead to so all i can say take it to a toy fixer.
Hpoe this helps, had the same problem with my son's leapster2, took it back got a replacement and the same thing happened within 5 minutes of turning it on!! Finally found this advice on the net.
If your Leapster2 does not respond to the stylus pen, it needs to be calibrated. Calibrating the Leapster2 is easy:
1) Ensure that a cartridge is not inserted
2) Hold down the Hint button while turning the unit on
3) When the LEAPSTER menu screen appears, press the A button
4) Touch each of the crosshairs that appear with the stylus
5) Restart unit
I purchased a Leapfrog Leapster in end of June sales last year for my daughter's birthday in October 2008. When she first turned it on it froze but after restarting played fine for 2 hrs then died and refused to work again. Fortunately I had kept my receipt (Target) but was still worried about it having been 4 months prior. They ended up giving me a store credit as they no more in stock at that store and I picked one up from another Target without having to pay the difference between my original sale price. I know you don't have the receipt but you could contact the place of purchase and ask them even if they are able to send off for repairs or put you in contact with the right people. Hope it helps a little ...
I got the system for my 4 year old daughter less than 2 weeks ago and it quit on me. It's rediculous! Anyway, at first we used batteries and it worked fine but the batteries went dead after she played it about 3 times so we went and bought the power cord. We plugged it in and it wouldn't work at all. I looked all over the internet trying to find a way to fix it because we also got her $100 worth of games and had already thrown away the box so we couldn't return it. Everyone was talking about a reset button and my system DOES NOT have one! I finally found a SOLUTION[most likely temporary] Take the batteries out. Hold the ON button down for 45 seconds, replace the batteries with FRESH ones and turn it on. Sounds like it won't work right?!? Well it did for me and before the game system would come on for NOTHING. Hopefully this helped! good luck
probably not. those lines are probably from dropping the game on the ground or water/alkaline fluid in the screen. the only way to no longer have the lines is by buying a new screen and those can cost quite a bit
