Just got my daughter the Leap Pad 2 with rechargeable batteries, but never got to use it becuase it never charged. Had it plugged in all day, it worked briefly while it was still plugged in, but shut off immediately when unplugged. After using it while plugged in, we only got about 3 mins of power before it automatically shut off again. Very dissappointed! please help~

Did it come with the batteries installed or seperate? Make sure they work in another device after they charged for 24hrs.
sometimes there is a seperator tap inside that needs to be pulled out

SOURCE: leap frog tag pen won't work any longer.

I found that after replacing the batteries, the power button on the reader did not work. I did however have luck after I connected the Reader/Pen to the laptop, updated the s/w on the reader and updated the s/w on the laptop. Then the reader was able to interact with one of the books just fine.

Leappad 2 ultra would not come on after my daughter poured water on it

Try sitting the leap pad in a bowl of uncooked rice (the rice will absorb moisture) leave it in there for a day or 2, then try again, with new batteries.

Good luck.

How can I reset my daughters leap pad ultra password for wifi connection?

Sometimes if you disconnect the power cable from your router 1 min or 2 that can erase the password, if it's not working look up for a touch on your router it's like a little circle with arrows if your device has one just press on it for 1 or 2 second, if it still not working go to your router configuration to set it up.

Is there any way to keep this charged? Or is it just batteries?

It runs in 4 "AA" batteries. You can buy rechargeable batteries (we keep two sets so one is always on the charger) or you can buy a rechargeable battery pack designed specifically for this game. For my money, the rechargeable "AA's" were a far better deal, less than half the cost.

What if screen crack on leapfrog pad 2

I have heard if you call their customer support, they will ask you to send a picture of the broken unit and will send a replacement free of charge. I am attempting this myself, as our daughters was accidentally crushed in the car today. Their customer support phone number is 1-866-334-5327.

Recharge or Batteries: All of the above required?

It can run off of batteries alone, or the ac adapter alone. There is a rechargeable battery pack (think laptop battery) that is available. With this pack you would plug it in to the wall, charge it up, then play. Otherwise it's one or the other
