    What happened is this. Someone ,we dont know who, pushed the power cable
    through the hole that houses the ,allegedly recessed, USB Port. and it got stuck through
    the hole. Admittedly the power socket is close to the shape of a USB port "ish" .
    Anyway I looked at it and told my friend the port had been pushed through into the inner
    part of the laptop. Ive only ever seen normal usb ports. The laptop works fine
    but were worried that it might shake lose and short out so someone took it to a computer
    repair shop who said would cost £50 (75$) to fix. Then 3 days later, today, they
    charged £50 to tell him the port was a recessed usb port and it is meant to be like that.

    Thats why the question. As I say laptop works fine. 6 inches maybe slightly more than is
    but say 3 inches to 4 inches inside. Would need to be skilled to use that USB port
    unless there is special way of plugging into it.

    thanks Kia

    If that port is recessed, 6 inches you said, then that port is broken. How is the performance of the Laptop otherwise.

Through my experience and my friend having the same laptop. His is not like that. I have never heard of a recessed usb port. Most all usb connections on have about a half inch male fitting. Unless you are Tech savvy and know how to open the case and fix it yourself I can see it causing you problems down the road. I could be wrong, but like I said, I've never heard of a recessed usb port. Have a great day and I hope this helps you out.

The model number is located either on the bottom of the right corner of the screen and on the label on the bottom of the laptop and the location and number of USB ports vary with different models.

The USB port is a connector/port that is 12x5 mm in size, some model thinkpad have onlt one USB port and some have 2 USB ports.
The USB ports are usually located at the back or at the sides of the laptop.

I can't find where the usb cable connects on printer going to computor......


The USB port is in a recessed area on the right hand side of the printer as you face the back of the unit. (The power cord is near the center.) The back has two half cylinder fins. The one with the USB port has a rectangular dent in that fin.

I hope this helps.

In the recessed area in the back of the unit, where you plug the power cord in, there is a square USB port on the left wall of the recess. They put it in a hard place to find!

TV MODE SELECTION


Look on the back of the unit. On the right hand side will be a removable panel. Inside the panel is a recessed area where the TV Tuner module is mounted. It plugs into a small D connector on the left side of that recessed area. If there is no tuner module mounted in the recessed area, you will not be allowed to select the TV options in any of the menus.
