Does it work with the dock then? Are there any lights when you plug it in w/o the dock? If when you press the power button anything flashes count the flashes and their frequency. (fast or slow) The only hope you have is to hold down the power button for 10 seconds while battery and power are connected. Then remove power and battery, hold for 10 secs again, but while holding slide in a battery. You should see no lights this time. At that point remove the battery and insert the wall power. Press the power button briefly. (as if you want to turn it on.) It will either turn on or flash the led with the batt light. If it flashes the led, insert the battery. The unit should turn on. This is how a rom power on is performed. If you don't have the latest firmware you may not have this feature. This is all documented on HP's site but they assume everything is actually working. If this gets you nowhere then you have a bad voltage regulartor which on an armada is NOT a separate module and will require a new MLB. (PART#204268-001) Keep in mind I haven't worked at HP since 03 so my parts database software is old. That part# may have been changed because I got the software BEFORE HP bought Compaq. You can call the Compaq parts source (800-652-6672) the direct backdoor is 770-343-5903 (0000 is main desk) or was when I worked there. This is a GREAT site for buying parts for your notebook. http://www.impactcomputers.com/compaq-armada-7400-parts.html and directly to the MLB: http://www.impactcomputers.com/204268-001.html $59.00 is all it costs. Hope this helps.

Did your problems begin after the docking station was burned out, or did it work for a while afterward? It certainly sounds like your motherboard's power array is damaged. Please write back with more specifics about when the problem began.

Docking station for MX1000 Laser mouse not working


That docking station has a lithium-ion battery in it that supposedly never needs replacing. I'm wondering if the battery did go out on it and needs to be replaced. If there is now way to get inside of the docking station then you will need to get another mouse, cause you can't just get the docking station.

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.

There are 4 reasons why your unit is behaving this way:
1. Charger is the problem.
2. The docking station is the broken.
3. The battery is broken or not accepting charge.
4. The actual unit is the problem.
It is very hard to tell which one is causing this to happen.
Let us do some troubleshooting first:
1. Plug your charger in an A/C outlet and make sure the red power light (left) is lit, otherwise the charger or the docking station is broken.
2. You can test the charger with a multimeter. Unplug the charger from the docking station and measure the voltage across the outside and inside, it should register more than 5 volts DC. If there is a 5Volt DC the docking station is the problem otherwise the charger is broken.
3. If the red power light is lit and the status light (right) is lit too, your docking station is broken.
4. If the red power light is lit, dock the unit into the charger, the status light (left) should turn red when your battery is accepting charge or turn blue when your battery is fully charged.
5. If the status light will not lit at all (while the red power light is on), tap the screen while the unit is docked on the charger. If the unit will become alive, you need a new battery otherwise you need a new unit.

12 hours is very long time to charge, the status light should turn to blue in less than 2 hours especially for a new battery.
