Try cleaning the stylus, the cartridges and the port with a little rubbing alcohol. Use a Q-tip.

Try turning off your wifi and skip the wifi setup and create a profile. Then install Leapfrog connect on PC and update the Leappad. This should then resolve your wifi connection issue. It worked for me when I had the same issue today.

I have the same problem. did you ever find an answer???

LeapFrog Leappad... | Answered on Sep 07, 2013

If it does power up, and you are unable to get only the Go button not to function, there could be 3 problems
1. the cartridge is dirty
2. the sytlus is bad
3. the sensor membrane is wet or bad.

Clean the cartridge or try another book.
Replace the stylus.
Dry out the leap pad (this is a last resort. place the leapPad in a sunny window for a day, standing upright and open (remove batteries).)

If nothing else works, you can find another leapPad at most thrift stores (that works!), for about $5-$25 (any model, but you might not get a lot of model choices, but some even come with books and cartridges you might not have!)
Take a book and a cartridge with you, maybe even batteries, and ask the store if you can try it before you buy it (they will usually let you test it)

Hi, I have found this pen on www.leappadpen.com

I hope that this helps?


LeapFrog Leappad... | Answered on Jan 29, 2011

where do I go to get one

LeapFrog Leappad... | Answered on Oct 07, 2010

Sounds like a stuck pen button or the pen wire is pinched (look in the battery door at the pen wire).
Although it very well could be something (spilled) in the power button.
Don't take it apart too far.. once the membrane on the touch screen is disturbed or taken apart, it'll never work right again!
For a whole replacement leapPad, try a thrift store. I see them all the time, all models, under $20, sometimes under $5. (I have a 4 year old son and he destroys everything!)
