    I FOUND IT!!!!! Here you go! I am not sure why Leappad doesn't publish this but here is how you fix a frozen leappad explore, they emailed me this when I called in: Kindly try these steps which should put the LeapPad into a reset/tune up mode: 1) Begin with the LeapPad turned off and the LeapFrog Connect application running on your computer. 2) Hold down these three buttons at the same time: - Right on the DPad (Since the device can be rotated two ways, the right arrow is on the right side of the DPAD when you are holding it in portrait mode) - Home - Down Volume 3) While holding down all 3 buttons , press the power button to turn the LeapPad on. 4) When it powers on, it will have an image of a LeapPad with a yellow triangle on the screen 5) Connect the LeapPad to the computer. Please follow the steps below for the Repair/Reset after the Tune Up: Open the LeapFrog Connect Application 1. Click Settings at the top of your screen. 2. To fix an issue with the LeapPad tablet, click Repair. To erase all files and game play data from the device, click Reset. Note: The need to reset the LeapPad handheld is uncommon and is to be used with caution. It will erase ALL of the player names, game progress, play data, badges and Micromods from both the handheld and the LeapFrog Connect Application. You will need to create new player names on the handheld, and reconnect the LeapPad handheld to use the LeapFrog Connect Application.

SOURCE: I am trying to connect

The Eject button appears when a Leapster2 handheld is connected and turned on. When you have finished configuring the Leapster2 handheld and your child wants to play with it, you can click the Eject button to disconnect the device. Once ejected, a message will appear letting you know that it is safe to disconnect the Leapster2 handheld from the computer. It is not really a "button" but a picture of a green button which says "EJECT". It should be located on the upper right corner of your screen.

I am having the same problem, contacted Tag (who is only there during work hours which really does not help) they supplied me with an alt connect file. That did not work either. Have you found a solution yet?

Hi,
This issue is most probably being caused by an intermittent disconnection from the requesting host (your computer) to the file file server (website). You can either use a download manager to download your files so even if the "request" disconnects, the download manager can manage to resume the download once the connection gets back.
You can get a free download manager here: FlashGet Download Link
Click on "download the latest version" on the right hand side and install the software. Download the LeapFrog application using FlashGet.
Hope this works for you.

For 4 digit pass code on my leappad ultra


Resetting your leappad ultra isa breeze. First thing you need to do is to download and install Leapfrog connect. If it doesn`t download, there`s an offline download option available. After installing it, connect your leappad ultra with the usb cable to the pc. power it on. it should get connected. If it doesn`t maybe your anti virus software is blocking it. If this happens, go to your antivirus software settings and under firewall rules, select allow for leapfrog connect .exe. Then it should detect your leappad ultra. Go to left hand top corner , select My Products. Then select your leappad ultra. Then goto Settings on the right top corner and in the pop up, select Reset. It will take around 15 - 20 mins to reset it. All data will be erased. Hope it helps

How do i reset my leappad 2


Hi JOHN, first try recalibrating it, instructions on how to do that are here:http://leapfrog.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2225
If calibration doesn't resolve the issue, you can reset the LeapPad with these steps:
1) Launch the LeapFrog Connect application
2) Press and hold down Ctrl + Shift + R
3) A pop up window will prompt you to connect the device you wish to reset
4) Power on and connect the LeapPad

My son's leappad turns on but stays on the leappad start up screen. I have tried new batteries, no luck. After some research I found that you can repair or reset it on the leappad connect. Howe


This site is worthless...more interested in tricking you with AD links than giving you an answer. Press Volume Down, Home and Right Directional...then power on. Connection screen will appear, connect it to your PC and select repair after tune up is done.

Then delete your profile on here and report the link you followed from google as worthless.

Leappad tuneup stuck at 5%


This toy sucks. I've had a really crappy year, but three months ago I had a good month and had a little extra to spare so I decided to buy, for Christmas the Leappads my two daughters had been asking for since last year's Christmas.

All good? NO! After being very excited and seeing the happiness on my two little girls's faces when they saw their gifts I was very happy with the way this year was ending. Until it came time to get a few "apps" and connect to the internet etc. with these things. Nothing works, no updates, no registrations, nothing. To add insult to injury, I've my proof of purchase for these two items has been lost and I now have to sit my two little kids down tomorrow to let them know that their "dream gifts" are useless and may remain that way for the foreseeable future. I've plugged a lot of stuff into my computer and have never had any problems, until this little kid's toy came along and nothing works.


Way to go LeapFrog. I followed your instructions and am now stuck with two absolutely useless toys after spending the bulk of my Christmas day trying to get these stupid things to work!!!
