Question about IBM ThinkPad T60 Notebook

1 Answer

T-60 will not seat properly in 2504 docking station.

T-60 will not seat properly in docking station.
I have one of the smaller type 2504 docking stations for my T60. I've been using it just fine for 3+ years. All of a sudden my thinkpad would not seat properly yesterday morning. I've fiddled around a bit with it, not wanting to jam or tweak it or the computer... and just simply cannot get it to seat. Any ideas out there?

I have the same docking station and I am typing this on my T60 right now. I have noticed that sometimes it is very hard to dock my laptop and other times it just slides on instantly. This seems to be an issue with poor design. If you look a the dock connector under you laptop you will notice there is a strip of plastic in the middle of two rows of connectors. The docking station connector must be perfectly aligned to successfully connect. I would inspect it for any damages, but honestly I think it is just an issue of patients, precision and a little bit of luck. If you can not identify any damage I would just slowly try to line it up and keep trying until it clicks. Remember to never force it and once it lines up it will slide in with very little force.

How to install USB3.0 eSATA 2.5"/3.5" horizonatal mobile HDD Docking station?


Hi

Once you have the drive installed in the docking station you will need to install the drivers on the host PC, if your drive is not showing up in my computer, then either the drive is faulty, the docking station is faulty or the drivers have not installed correctly.

1 listen to the drive can you hear clicking noises from the drive, or is there any activity at all from the drive if not then the drive is either not sat in the holder correctly so is not getting power. or if it seated ok then the drive has gone faulty.

2. If the Docking Station is faulty return it and get it replaced

3 Remove and reinstall the drivers.

No audio from docking station PA3314U-1PRP. Laptop itself (Tecra M5) outputs audio normally. All other outputs from the docking station work normally. How do I get audio to work through the docking...


Hi there,
you should try plugging from the output port of the laptop to the input port of the docking station, remember the source is coming from your laptop going to the docking station.
Now for the microphone once you have the settings right the line in jack should work properly.
Hope this helps!

Dell latitude D410 wont boot up when hooked to docking station can not use keyboard or mouse


Sounds like a compatibility issue between your Dell and the Docking station. I would say make sure the software for your docking station is installed properly, and update the software before connecting again.

Probably not, unless you just have to have the docking station. My roomba always had trouble mating with my docking station so I never used it. I just plugged it directly in to will using the AC adapter.

I had the same problem. I did need to take the clear plastic insert off but then I had to put a rubber band around the dock and camera (more on the left of the camera and dock) to hold it evenly on there since the camera was leaning on the right and wasn't charging for me. Now it charges as soon as I put it on there with the rubber band with no blinking red light anymore! Hope this helps!

T40 TP will not boot in dock


sounds like your docking station may have some junk in the seating connector. Take a look, and perhaps you'll need to swab those connections with a tight, long style swab, with denatured alcohol.
