If the cartridges can be removed, pull them out and try spraying an electronic contact cleaner, power off, and make sure it is safe for plastics, onto the cartridge pins. Then, Gently, slide the cartridge in and out of the socket several times to clean both the socket and cartridge. May have to do this a couple of times.

There should be a mini USB cable that came with it. Plug the small end into your leapster and the regular USB into your computer. You will also need the leapster software installed on your computer.

I had the same problem with my daughter's LEAPSTER 2 handset - it was not responding to the stylus. Hopefully the following solves your problem.http://leapfrog.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1736

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!

Hi,
Seems that the console has experienced corruption on the unit, If the reformatting did not do anything to fix the problem then something is wrong with the unit, How long did your grandson have the unit? if it still in warranty better contact Leapfrog for further info possible they can have the unit serviced or replaced with the issue.
Leapfrog contact service
Troubleshooting guides
After checking most anything related to the issue it shows that the unit is most likely a lemon as they say busted, seems something has failed in the unit that may have caused it to malfunction, or it is possible that when it asked to be connected to the computer and when the updates was done possible it may have downloaded a corrupted file that can be a cause of the failure.
Call Leapfrog so they can check what happened during the download.
Here are Error Messages see the list and see more info what could have caused the issue.
Unless there is another way of resetting the unit

Try to uninstall and re-install the LeapFrog Connect. Make sure you got the latest software form Leapfrog Website instead of install it from the CD supplied from the original box.

Try to uninstall and re-install the LeapFrog Connect and wait until it finish configuring and updated the software both on the PC and the console, It may takes 10-20 mins for it to complete updating.

One more thing, you have to make sure that you get latest LeapFrog Connect software from LeapFrog website instead of installing it from supplied CD.

For a temporary fix, connect the unit via the usb to the computer and launch the leap frog connect software. Once it reads your unit, (you will know that it is connected because you will see a little eject button by the leapster icon on the top left of the screen), go to "settings" on the top right hand side of the screen. When it asks you to format, say yes, then follow the remaining instructions.

Hope this helps.

Change the batteries to all new ones of the same brand. Most of the rechargeable ones are not powerful enough. My kids have that problem every time the batteries get low.

Leapster 2 | Answered on Apr 13, 2011


we are having the same problem! any success with solving it?

Leapster 2 | Answered on Apr 13, 2011


Hold down the following buttons at the same time: Left Arrow-Home-A Button. Then touch the X icon that appears at the bottom of the screen and follow the audio instructions. You can only delete a name when all 3 name slots are filled.
Hope this helps!

HI, try these steps...

  • 1

  • Change the batteries. Sometimes this seems like a simple and obvious step, but is often overlooked. The Leapster console runs off of four AA batteries.

  • 2

    Hold the power button on the Leapster console. If you still do not see a display on the screen with a fresh set of batteries, then you got one of the bad consoles. This was a bad batch of consoles that were sent out by Leapster.

  • 3

    Contact Leapster customer support. They should be able to replace your Leapster learning system free of charge. With all of your information ready, it should be quick and easy to get a replacement console.

    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
