SolutionIf your Leapster system does not respond to the stylus pen, it needs to be calibrated. To calibrate your Leapster system:

  1. Turn the unit on and wait for the sign-in screen to appear.
  2. Hold down the Home, Hint, and B buttons simultaneously.
  3. When the screen changes, press the A button.
  4. Using the Stylus, touch the center of the targets.

SOURCE: The Leapster turns on and the sign in screen comes

How did you try recaibrating? I just fixed my son's Leapster 2 a few minutes ago. I read a couple different recalibration instructions and the one that works for the Leapster 2 is:
1-Hold down the (?) Hint button while turning on the system.
2-Keep holding it down until the Leapster menu shows up
3-Let it go and press the A button
4-Touch each crosshairs x with the pen tip
5-When it goes back to the menu screen, restart the unit

SOURCE: Touch screen and stylus pen not working

I just had the same problem and found a solution on another thread on this site. Clean the screen really well with Windex and dry it. Check all 4 edges for crumbs that might be lodged in there. I found one tiny crumb. I dislodged with a small nail file (gently!), wiped the screen off and then it worked! I didn't even bother recalibrating it. When I turned it on and went to the sign in screen, it was working fine. The original post also said to try "milking" the screen in case pressure had caused it to stick. Press gently with your thumb on the screen in various spots around the screen, then try again.

Call up Leapster (c/s I reached was not in USA) and they will have you send in your Leapster and send you back a new or refurbished one. I was told this a few years ago, but never mailed it in. We had an issue with it shutting off, but seems to be ok? The kid's don't complain.

Leapster 2 Doesn't Recognize Stylus


Hold the hint button (question mark) when turning on the device. When the device turns on, do the stylus calibration and touch each of the crosshairs that shows up. After you are finished restart the leapster and you should be fine.

Pen won't work on Quantum Leap Exporer Globe


ok, last night I was doing some research on my daughters leapster, its not a quantum leap, but maybe can be fixed the same way. I found out that you can "recalibrate" the machine. I used the instructions for the leapster, but here is what they said about the Quantum:


Turn the power on. Wait until you see the "Home" screen.
Find the small hole in the back of your Pixter unit above the battery compartment door. That’s the calibration hole.
Insert, push and hold the stylus in the calibration hole. Turn Pixter over so that you can see the screen. When you see two plus signs, remove the stylus from the calibration hole.
First touch the plus sign in the upper left corner with the tip of the stylus.
Then touch the plus sign in the lower right corner with the tip of the stylus.

GOOD LUCK, HOPE THIS WORKS FOR YOU, I ALMOST THREW MINE OUT TOO AND NOW IT WORKS.
