When the main screen comes on and says touch your name with the pen it does not resond what do i do?


It sounds like the TouchScreen needs to be calibrated.

1. Hold down the Hint button while turning the Leapster on.
2. When the Leapster menu screen appears, press the A button.
3. Touch each of the crosshairs that appear with the stylus.
4. Restart the Leapster.

Hope this helps!

We have a Leapster 2 which the screen no longer registers when touched by the pen. Can this be fixed or replaced? i bought it only 2 months ago hope you can help Emma


I posted a solution to this problem a couple months ago. We have the Cars edition of the Leapster2. I'm guessing it was the same problem that we were having. When the pen touched the screen there was no response and the unit had barely been used. Try this!! I found it on www.ehow.com.

Callibration
  • If you touch your stylus pen to the screen of your Leapster2 and it does not respond, your unit needs to be calibrated. To do this, make sure no game cartridge is in the unit. Turn the unit on while you are holding down the "Hint" or "?" button. Keep holding the button down until the Leapster2 menu appears. You will need to turn off the unit and repeat these steps if you do not see the menu. When the menu comes onto the screen, press the "A" button and use the stylus pen to touch each of the crosshairs as they appear. When you are done, your unit should be properly calibrated.

    The Leapster turns on and the sign in screen comes up but the touch screen does not work. Recalibrating does not work. Can't get past the sign in screen


    How did you try recaibrating? I just fixed my son's Leapster 2 a few minutes ago. I read a couple different recalibration instructions and the one that works for the Leapster 2 is:
    1-Hold down the (?) Hint button while turning on the system.
    2-Keep holding it down until the Leapster menu shows up
    3-Let it go and press the A button
    4-Touch each crosshairs x with the pen tip
    5-When it goes back to the menu screen, restart the unit

    My leapster 2 won't let me write my name in the screen?


    You can try calibrating the stylus pen. Hope this works :) Here are step by step instructions straight from the Leapster2 website:

    If your Leapster2 does not respond to the stylus pen, it needs to be calibrated. Calibrating the Leapster2 is easy:

    1) Ensure that a game cartridge is not inserted in the Leapster2

    2) Hold down the Hint (?) button while turning the unit on. Continue to hold the Hint button down until the LEAPSTER2 menu appears. Remember that you need to hold the "Hint" button down the whole time while you are pressing the power button, and releasing it.

    3) The LEAPSTER2 menu will show the options Base Info, Cart1 Info, Cart2 Info, Cart3 Info, and Touch Calib. If you do not see this menu after powering on the Leapster2, turn the Leapster2 off and repeat steps 1 & 2 until you see the menu.

    4) When the LEAPSTER2 menu screen appears, press the A button on your handheld.

    5) Using the stylus pen, touch each of the crosshairs that appear

    6) Restart unit

    My Leapster 2 comes on, shows the name on screen & ask to touch my name w/ the pen; however when I touch the name, nothing happens. It keeps asking to touch a name or "guest".

    Hi, have you tried to recalibrate the screen as in your instructions?
    Make sure you have no game inserted
    Press and hold down the 'on' button and 'hint' button (with questionmark on it) at same time until a menu appears on screen
    Press A
    Now touch all the little crosses with your pen that appear on the screen
    switch leapster off and restart
    if still not working, repeat above

    Leapster with broken pen


    My daughter did the same thing to the tip of her Leapster 2 stylus. I called Leap Frog at 1-800-701-5327 and was able to order a replacement stylus directly from them on credit card for $5.00 shipped.

    I also took her old stylus and sanded the broken tip down with 100 grit and then 220 grit sandpaper to get rid of the sharp, cracked point and it works just fine. I figure I'll keep the sanded one as a spare in case she does something silly with it again.
