Hi,


Welcome to Fixya. If you need to sync the device to the stylus just follow the steps below.

1. Turn your Leapster 2 off, and remove the game cartridge

2. Hold down the 'hint' button while the game is off. The 'hint' button is the middle small button in the row of three above the directional pad on the left, with a '?' on it.

3. With your finger still firmly on the 'hint' button, turn the Leapster 2 back on. Keep your finger on the 'hint' button.

4. The screen should be displaying the calibration screen. You can release the 'hint' button now.
5. Press the 'A' button on the right to enter the calibration screen.

6. A small '+' sign will appear on the screen. Touch it with the stylus. A new '+' sign will appear. Touch this with the stylus too, and repeat for as many '+' signs as your Leapster 2 throws at you.

7. The screen will return to the calibration screen. You can now turn the machine off. Leave the cartridge out of the console, and turn it back on.

8. Your stylus and touch screen should now be working, enabling you to sign in as usual.

9. If it is working correctly then you can turn it off, add a game cartridge and turn it back on.

Thanks for using Fixya,

    Great directions. I bought my Leapster 2 second hand and didn't have any of the manuals to fix this problem. Worked like a charm. Thanks.

    Nice fix Ezrahite. My son is playing the game now. Off subject, but related to this topic. I went to the thrift store yesterday and found Leapster 1 for $2.98. It works fine. It's crazy to think that someone would want to just give away an electronic toy like that ($39.98 regular retail value.

    My daughter's lapster 2 sat up for almost three years before I was able to figure out how to fix it. I was going to give it away in a yard sale but didn't want to because it wasn't working. Now that it works my daughter wants to keep it.

Does not respond to stylus


Try recalibrating the touch screen. Devices with touch screens need to be recalibrated in order to respond properly. The greater the use, the more often recalibration is necessary. I recalibrate my phone once a week. I hope this helps.

Touch screen not responding when using stylus.


Is it just possible you left the Navman mounted on the screen in hot weather whilst away from the vehicle? I made a little white jacket for mine with a heat reflecting liner.

Try do a hard reset to your device to the deafult vendor definitions, then re-initilize the screen and this should help.
