OK, after nearly breaking my daughter's leapster I have figured it out.

Use the coin and twist the little screw up. Then with the screw part closest to your chest, SLIDE the cover off AWAY from your chest. The batteries are located on the undercarriage of the cover. It takes "4" AA's

Hope this helps everyone!!!

If the battery compartment lid is not sliding out after you have loosened the screw, press the coin in the gap created from what short distance it did slide, and use the coin to force the battery compartment forward. Mine was really stuck, and this did the trick after some serious effort.

Instructions
    • 1Put the screwdriver into the screw hole in the small panel on the back of the Leapster. Remove the screw, and open the panel.
    • 2 Remove the batteries from the Leapster and discard them. Find the small "reset" button behind the panel cover. The reset button should be black or red
    • 3 Press the reset button with the pointed object. Hold the button down for about three to five seconds.
    • 4 Put fresh batteries into the battery chamber. Make sure the flat side of each battery connects with the springs in each battery channel. Screw the panel cover back into place.
    • 5 Press the Leapster's "on/off" button. When the Leapster comes on, enter the country informationicon1.png and the player's name.
    • 6 Press the "hint" button, which opens a pop-up help menu. Press the "A" button. Use the stylus to touch the center of the small crosshairs on the screen to calibrate the touch screen.

My daughter's Leapster 2 Handheld game's screen is dark. She cannot see any of her games that she tries to play. I tried using the brightening button, but it doesn't help. Also, have replaced the batteries...


are the batteries you are using the correct size/voltage for the leapster? I believe it takes 4 AA/LR6 size batteries at 1.5V each.
has the product been dropped or bashed?

Leapster not powering on


I have never used the Leapster before, But I researched it a bit and discovered that it uses "AA" Batteries. Were the rechargeable batteries you used before designed for the Leapster or were they older Ni-Cad (Nickel Cadmium) style batteries? Older Ni-Cads put out a slightly higher voltage than standard (1.7v) as opposed to the standard 1.5v. This could possibly cause problems. If you have only had it for a few months than it should be warranty protected. Hope this helps. Cheers!
