Question about LeapFrog Leapster 2 Learning System
I've tried to look at all the possible fixes listed..I tried the eraser, I tried the batteries, I held the buttons, sometimes it gets stuck at the warning screen other times it just beeps loudly twice. I don't even know if its on or off

Are you using it with a game? Will it stay on if NO game cartridge is in & are U able to access & play Pre-installed games?
If so, it may be the cartridge is DIRTY. I discovered this with our Leapster 2. What works for us is getting a Q-TIP & RUBBING ALCOHOL, you want to saturate Q-tip with the rubbing alcohol & clean the CARTRIDGE (NOT the Hand held ).
You want to clean the computer chip @ the bottom by inserting Alcohol soaked Q-tip on each side of contact strip (the part that inserts into the hand held) & with the dry end of Q-tip go over it again, for more cleaning & to wipe up any EXCESS Alcohol. REPEAT this process until Q-TIP comes back CLEAN.
I was really surprised @ ALL the BLACK grime that came off cartridge.
I hope this helps.

One suggestion; Place in a Wal-Mart bag , drive to the store and go to customer service and ask for a refund(if you have the receipt) or ask for an exchange. Wal-Mart is good on that. Good luck!

Connect it via USB to your PC/laptop. It'll connect to the Leapster website and appear to update firmware. Once it is finished, it will let you know to disconnect. After that it should work. I had the same problem and did this, and now it's working fine.
