Hi,


Welcome to Fixya. If you need to sync the device to the stylus just follow the steps below.

1. Turn your Leapster 2 off, and remove the game cartridge

2. Hold down the 'hint' button while the game is off. The 'hint' button is the middle small button in the row of three above the directional pad on the left, with a '?' on it.

3. With your finger still firmly on the 'hint' button, turn the Leapster 2 back on. Keep your finger on the 'hint' button.

4. The screen should be displaying the calibration screen. You can release the 'hint' button now.
5. Press the 'A' button on the right to enter the calibration screen.

6. A small '+' sign will appear on the screen. Touch it with the stylus. A new '+' sign will appear. Touch this with the stylus too, and repeat for as many '+' signs as your Leapster 2 throws at you.

7. The screen will return to the calibration screen. You can now turn the machine off. Leave the cartridge out of the console, and turn it back on.

8. Your stylus and touch screen should now be working, enabling you to sign in as usual.

9. If it is working correctly then you can turn it off, add a game cartridge and turn it back on.

If you have questions please let me know.Thanks for using Fixya

Push the "A" button to enter the calibration.
There will be a little plus sign. Touch it with the stylus and continue to touch the plus signs with the stylus until you return to the calibration screen.
Turn the Leapster off and then back on again without a cartridge.

Hello,

I had the same problem and here is the answer I found at leapfrog.com.

If your Leapster2 has this kind of problem, it needs to be calibrated.

Calibrating the Leapster2 is easy:

1) Ensure that a cartridge is not inserted

2) Hold down the Hint (?) button while turning the unit on. Continue to hold the Hint button down until the LEAPSTER menu appears.

3) When the LEAPSTER menu screen appears, press the A button

4) Touch each of the crosshairs that appear with the stylus

5) Restart unit

Good luck!

My Leapster 2 comes on, shows the name on screen & ask to touch my name w/ the pen; however when I touch the name, nothing happens. It keeps asking to touch a name or "guest".
