Question about LeapFrog Leapster 2 Learning System
We bought my daughter a Leapster 2 for Christmas and it was working fine. Now, when she turns it on it will immediately shut off after the "important" screen. We have changed the batteries several times, but now I am stuck and don't know what to do.
Thanks! BADA I have the very same problem, the leapster 2 shuts off right after the "important" message screen.
Are you using it with a game? Will it stay on if NO game cartridge is in & are U able to access & play Pre-installed games?
If so, it may be the cartridge is DIRTY. I discovered this with our Leapster 2. What works for us is getting a Q-TIP & RUBBING ALCOHOL, you want to saturate Q-tip with the rubbing alcohol & clean the CARTRIDGE (NOT the Hand held ).
You want to clean the computer chip @ the bottom by inserting Alcohol soaked Q-tip on each side of contact strip (the part that inserts into the hand held) & with the dry end of Q-tip go over it again, for more cleaning & to wipe up any EXCESS Alcohol. REPEAT this process until Q-TIP comes back CLEAN.
I was really surprised @ ALL the BLACK grime that came off cartridge.
I hope this helps.
