What to do if your Leapster2 pen quits working?

We changed the batteries and Madison’s Leapster tonight.  However, the pen/stylus quit working.  Here’s how to fix it:

1) Ensure that a cartridge is not inserted
2) Hold down the Hint button while turning the unit on
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

I’m listing it here for others and for myself, if it happens again.
