You shouldn't be able to feel it, it feels you. It is a touch screen and not analog or spring loaded.

    The power button button had a detent motion before it fell out of the case and hit the floor. Yes the Le Pan is a touch screen tablet but powers on with a button you press. Also I have fully charged the tablet and have tried to start it by using the reset button and nothing happens.

    Hello Andrea, I'm sorry I didn't fully address your problem. First let me say, I can't tell how to put the button back in place, but I did go to their website and they do address, not being able to turn your tablet on, (in frequently asked questions). They said, to fully charge your battery, then try to turn it on, if this did not work then you need to reset your tablet. I hope this helps. SG2

Power button missing

Usually there is a pc. of plastic that appears to be a power button but inside of the case there will be an actual button connected to wires that is pushed when you push the button outside of the case. Should be able to use a toothpick to push in on the little circle u see inside of the case. If not you can remove the cover and order the part that is broken. this person dropped theirs and the wires came loose inside of the case.

My power slide button on my motion LE1700 does not power up my tablet, this is my second one this has happened too. I have sent if off for fixing and last time they charged myself 400pounds for a complete...

those are generic B.S. answers. The power switch is a flat tab that has two prongs on the rear side that interface a very small slide switch on the mother board. The mini slide switch has a plastic piece that sticks out about 3mm and the plastic part is unfortunately not very strong. the slide return spring may have become detached as well- this indicates major trauma to the slide switch in some way- and the repair is expensive because the parts are not readily available- hence the 400 price tag for a whole new board. Nowadays these tablets are dirt cheap. I'm guessing by how old this post is you have moved on to a newer tablet- if not I'll work with you to get it fixed- at a lot less as well.

Not remembering my place in book suspect device is rebooting have heard of this problem caused by kindle cover (I have non lighted amazon leather version).

The lighted version gets power for the light from the hooks used to attach the device to the cover. Early versions of the non-lighted cover are reported to interfere with the hidden power connectors.

You can find out, by removing the cover and see if the problem goes away.

If you feel your Kindle suffers from this problem, contact Amazon Kindle customer support (go to HERE, click on "Kindle Support" in the upper right and on the next page find the "Contact us" button). According to other customers who had the same issue, Amazon replaces the faulty non-lighted cover for a lighted one at no extra costs.

Motion Computing C5 Tablet PC won't power on

Hi! I do understand that you are having the problem on the laptop turning on. Try another option, turn off laptop, remove cables and battery, press and hold power button for 10 secs. Reinsert the cables and battery on the laptop. Then turn it on. If the laptop did not turned on, remove the power cable and turned on the laptop. If still didn't, remove the battery and insert the power cable. If still did not work then check if there lights flashed on the laptop when turning it on. If still does not, then you need to contact the pc manufacturer for repair and possible replacement. Otherwise, if there is light on the laptop, then there might be a problem either the battery or the power cable itself. If there is light on the laptop but no power cable, most likely the monitor did not work simply because the battery works due to the fact that there is light on the laptop. On the other hand if there is light when plugging in the power cable on the laptop, then you need to check and insert another battery if it works. Otherwise you need to replace the battery...

Power port on le1600 does not charge batteries.

In some Motion LE1600 tablet pcs, the AC adapter port becomes separated from the motherboard. It will charge in the convertible keyboard or docking station because the power comes from the USB connection (for the kb) or the dock connector (for the FlexDock). Motion used to fix this by repairing the solder joint but now they just replace the motherboard (very expensive). There are ways to solder this but the repair doesn't always last unless you have someone really good do it.
