I used it this morning and it was working perfectly fine . put it back in the dock station , and grab'd it just now to find out it was taking blurry pics . i heard something loose inside when i took it out of the dock station so took it apart . a metal rod looking piece with a flat end , kind of like a screw without threads about one inch long fell out . i couldn't find out where it goes , but i have a feeling it has something to do with that piece . anyone had this problem , or know where i can get a manual or diagram so i can find where it goes ???? i'd appreciate it so much . thanks in advance .

I had the same issue. I tried opening the dock and could not find anything wrong. It seems the charger was delivering sufficient voltage. So I disconnected power to the charger and reconnected couple of times and it started working again. My charger has a LED light and based on the brightness of the light you can findout if the output voltage is close to 20 volts.
My remote worked perfectly until I changed the battery. The original battery was CL 2032 and I replaced it with DL 2032. After replacing the battery, only the volume control works. The off button will only fade the sound while the button is depressed. Release the button, and the volume returns to the original level and the unit remains On.
None of the other buttons work.

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.
If your video was working fine before then it might be a corrupted file driver of your docking station. No need to worry with your computer because it is not your computer causes the problem. It is your docking station.
You may try reinstalling your docking station software using the cd that came with it.You need to connect your system to your docking station when reinstalling the software. if the issue persist after installing the software. Please check if your docking station still in warranty and check their part replacement policy.

You could also have a battery problem.
If the battery is weak, it may not extend the lens.
But other things could appear to work.
It takes a lot of power to extend the lens.
Your docking station recharges the batteries on that camera.
There has been one report (on this forum) of a Kodak camera having batteries that would not charge due to a bent/missing pin in the connector that mates with the docking station.
Some people have reported that a small slap on the side of a camera can jar loose a stuck lens.
But don't get slap happy and damage the camera.
Some people have reported that they could grasp the lens and pull gently when powering-on a camera to help it extend.
Again, don't over-do it.
Disassembling a camera would be a last resort and likely to cause more damage.
