Motion Computing C5 Tablet PC won't power on

I have a Motion Computing C5 Tablet PC. It won't power on. The battery is fully charged. It doesn't matter if it's plugged in or not. I tried pushing & holding power button, pushing short time, taking battery out and putting back in. The green LED light around the power button does not light.

    The power button is pushed in all the time. When we opened the case the plastic piece that is attached to the button is broke. Can we fix it ourselves? If so, how?

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...

Tablet starts up and goes right back off

That almost sounds like a dead battery, or your battery isn't holding a charge. Have you tried using it while it is still connected to the charger? If you do have it hooked to the charger power and it stays on, it's a bad battery. If if does the same thing while plugged in, it's a problem with the power supply in the tablet.

Black screen

The power cells may be defective and thus the battery will no longer accept a charge. Replace the internal power cells.

Plugged in not charging

try a power adapter with higher amperage- 19 volts 3.5 or better amps works well, or you could have a loose power plug on the tablet, or a bad 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.
