Question about Vtech Toys
Apparently you can disconnect all power supplies (batteries and adapter), then reconnect all power supplies. Press the ON/OFF button. Remove the storybook cartridge, clean it if necessary, then re-insert it into the V.Reader.
I've also included the product manual as a link.
There doesn't seem to be any real answers online for this, but if you're out of options, I'd contact their customer service team at https://www.vtechkids.ca/en/support/form or call 1-877-352-8697.

The blue screen seems to happen when you change the batteries (it's what happened to us). The blue screen indicates that there's a software problem, like when you boot up your computer and for some reason it freezes up. That software needs to be reinstalled. You'll lose anything that was saved on the v.reader, but at least you'll get it working again.
vtech could have made it a very simple problem to solve just by adding in their customer support: Blue Screen? follow these steps. But they don't, so here's how:
You'll need an SD card with at least 64mo of free space. If you want to use the one from your camera, transfert all of your pictures to the computer. Everything on the SD card will be erased.
Download the Recovery software from either link below (you can find both on the vtech website, but it took me a while to get there)
For the US version
For the Canadian english version
This is the link to the website itself: http://www.vtechkids.com/download/ca/en
Run the program and follow the instructions (at least those are clear and easy to follow). Mine worked fine after that. And since there's no reset button on the v.reader, this is the only way to erase the 100+ drawings that your child saved.
Hope that helps
