Why doesn't my Leap Motion sensor work?


Here are some basic steps to troubleshoot the Leap motion sensor:

  1. Make sure the Leap Control panel works and displays the green or yellow icon.

  2. Open the Leap Control panel visualizer and make sure the sensor works there.

  3. Enable the Image Mode in Leap control panel to see the live feed.

  4. If the Leap Control Panel does not launch, reboot your computer.

  5. Sometimes the Leap Motion service may crash. Either reboot your computer, or (on Windows) open services.msc and restart the service.

  6. Check the Leap troubleshooting guide and other support topics.

  7. Leap is under active development and their drivers improve all the time, so pay attention to the Leap website.
