There is something wrong on your DOCKING STATION ( as what you mean the "base station". Hope I'm right with the things you mention. Docking station not working okay though. Try to call DELL technical support for some solutions for this issue. If it can be resolve over the phone then fine but if not then they either replace the docking station or have it repaired. Thank you.

How can i update dell dock?


A docking station is an extension or addition of ports for a laptop computer. Once the portable computer is docked, you can access the docking station's ports, such as PS/2 or USB 2.0 ports, through your computer. Some docking stations have monitors that you can connect your computer to, placing your video on an external screen so you can turn off your computer's monitor and conserve some of your computer's energy. All Dell docking stations will have the same general troubleshooting steps.

Plug your laptop's power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If there is no power going to your laptop from the docking station but it works when the power adapter is plugged into the wall, the docking station is bad and needs to be replaced. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If power goes on but your computer doesn't recognizes accessories such as a USB mouse--plugged into the docking station, try a different port on the station. If it works in a different port, the previous USB port is burned out. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If power is going through the docking station but no accessories are being recognized, you might have a corrupted docking profile. Undock the computer and dock it again once it has fully started up to reset the docking profile. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If you have an external monitor and it is not working, completely close the lid on the laptop so the image will move to the external monitor. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If power is going through the docking station but no accessories are being recognized and resetting the docking profile fails, update all drivers through Dell's support website and then re-dock the computer. Some of the software that runs the hardware may have become corrupted. Hope this helps

My dell 2005fpw screen has gone blank and power button is flashing green. The monitor is connected to my laptop via a docking station.


A flashing green is usually a power supply failure on the main board of the LCD and a protective shut down circuit kicks in when the voltages are not correct at the check sum.
This also depending on the circuit configuration that the monitor is in standby mode. Your user manual can give you this information.
This also may be the video card itself or a loose cable.
Check the monitor cable to see if it is secured.
Also check you resolution settings on the PC. This procedure will require you to connect another monitor to the pc to see if it will bring a signal.
If a signal is visible then the video card is ok.
If not then you will have to check the video driver for the video graphic display card and or replace the card.

Uniden DSS7855+1, flashing ''welcome! please wait...'', wont work


This is not a direct solution to your problem, but a workaround for a similar situation. I have two headsets and two charging stations. One of the headsets was stuck with the message ''Welcome! please wait''. When I put the phone on the charging station it usually sits on nothing would happen, but when I put it on the other station the phone came back to life. The non-working charging station will still charge the phone so it is worth keeping.

Ear piece does not work. Station top light does not come on


The 500A base station is definitely compatible with the 510 earpiece. If the earpiece is turned off or unpaired the base station's red power light will be flashing. If the earpiece is already off, try turning it on by holding down the little black button on top. The base station will automatically try to find the earpiece and the blue light on top of the base will come on. If the earpiece is already on (slow flashing blue light on the mic boom) turn it off and back on again and wait for the base to find it.

BT Studio 3500, Base station, flashing telephone. Base staion handset, flashing message icon 2nd handset, flashing telephone and handset. Why the flashing and how do I cancel all the flashing.


eventually contacted the BT team via telephone and apparently this is a common problem when using BT products with Talktalk & Virgin. To overcome this in the majority of cases, dial 1571 and connect to your voicemail, listen to the options and finally delete all messages. Hope this can be added to your list of solutions.
