Leapster explorer says memory full but it's not

Posted by GreyEyes on

  • GreyEyes Jul 01, 2012

    When I click on the "what's on the Leapster" and the list of downloaded programs generates, none are checked. Yet the memory shows the unit as full. When I attached the unit to my computer to download Micromods and treats/shampoo, a software update occurred. Now the thing is useless. Help?

    To add: this is not a Leapster 2. Just a regular one. Not sure why it posted here.

    Is this Mac compatabile? My MacBook Pro doesn't know what application to open the executable in.

    I'm afraid it's not Mac Compatible. It is for a windows pc. I personally tried this program with no luck,the only way I was able to fix my son's leapster,was to reset it,which will remove everything from it.

My leapster wont reconize the camera

I had the same exact problem. I even tried another camera with no luck. I ended up updating the firmware/software on the Leapster Explorer and the camera started working. Here is a link to the Leapster website showing you how this is done:

I gave my son a leapster explorer about a month now and it's volume just stopped working and it wont hear anything.

there are three basic reasons why the leapster explorer won't bring out sound.
1. Defective speaker
The speaker of your leapster explorer maybe defective, this can make it not bring out any sound. Disassemble the leapster explorer, check the speaker part, test the speaker with a AA battery. If you hear any sound using the battery, then it means there is nothing wrong with the speaker.
2. Loose wire connection
Disassemble the leapster explorer, check the wires connecting the speaker to the board. Check for any wire cut, or loose connection which can cause the speaker not to bring out sound. . 3. Sound IC/Card/Board
If non of the above is the cause of the problem, then it means the leapster explorer is having a defective sound ic/board/card. There is an IC on the board of the leapster explorer which is responsible for sound. If this ic has a shot, there won't be any sound. If this be the cause, I think it's high time to took the leapster explorer to a repairman because this requires skill.
I hope the above is clear. If not, please let me know for further assistance.

Hi. Our son's Leapster Explorer is good, but we are unable to connect it to the website so we can download demos and check his progress. We follow the instructions on the Cd rom and internet but it...

Try to uninstall and re-install the LeapFrog Connect. Make sure you got the latest software form Leapfrog Website instead of install it from the CD supplied from the original box.

How can i change pets on pet pals for leapster explorer

Turn on your child's Leapster Explorer handheld.
When the SIGN-IN menu shows up, press the left D-pad and Hint button at the same time.

This will give you the PARENT SETTINGS menu.
You will need to start them from scratch to choose a new pet. It is sad but at current it is the only way to choose a new pet.
