    Mine doesn't respond either - and the recorded voice prompt keeps skipping and repeating words or phrases. Did any of these solutions work for you? I'm not sure if it's the stylus that isn't working or if it's the entire system, so I don't want to go buy a new pen if the actual machine itself is broken.

If it does power up, and you are unable to get only the Go button not to function, there could be 3 problems
1. the cartridge is dirty
2. the sytlus is bad
3. the sensor membrane is wet or bad.

Clean the cartridge or try another book.
Replace the stylus.
Dry out the leap pad (this is a last resort. place the leapPad in a sunny window for a day, standing upright and open (remove batteries).)

If nothing else works, you can find another leapPad at most thrift stores (that works!), for about $5-$25 (any model, but you might not get a lot of model choices, but some even come with books and cartridges you might not have!)
Take a book and a cartridge with you, maybe even batteries, and ask the store if you can try it before you buy it (they will usually let you test it)

My Leappad PlusWriting stopped recognising the GO symbols on all books as well. The internal electrical connections for the left-hand page are held together by a plastic clamp which appears to bend up in the middle over time. Adding a small bracket above the original clamp (to straighten it out) sorted the issue out. This appears to be a design fault.

Leapfrog ipad ultra black screen white dot


During a normal shut down, the screen image on a LeapPad will reduce to a white dot, which will disappear in five to ten seconds.
In rare circumstances, the white dot will not disappear and the LeapPad will not fully power down. If the LeapPad does not complete the shutdown process and the white dot remains on the screen for more than ten seconds, complete the shut down by pressing and holding the power button on the LeapPad for ten seconds. This will fully power the LeapPad down, and it will start up normally next time you power it on. For more information contact essay writing service reviews

Won't set up


Try turning off your wifi and skip the wifi setup and create a profile. Then install Leapfrog connect on PC and update the Leappad. This should then resolve your wifi connection issue. It worked for me when I had the same issue today.

I thought the batteries were being drained over night each time I had to replace them. Then after replacing them about four times in twenty four hours, I repeatedly pressed the power button and eventually...


Sounds like a stuck pen button or the pen wire is pinched (look in the battery door at the pen wire).
Although it very well could be something (spilled) in the power button.
Don't take it apart too far.. once the membrane on the touch screen is disturbed or taken apart, it'll never work right again!
For a whole replacement leapPad, try a thrift store. I see them all the time, all models, under $20, sometimes under $5. (I have a 4 year old son and he destroys everything!)

Try cleaning the other cartridges contacts with alcohol and Q-tip. The major problem with the leappad is that the cartridges are failing after the warranty period is over.
