Thinkpad tablet dock disconnects when connected to power

#1 Post by QWERTY Andreas » Sun Oct 29, 2017 3:44 am


I just acquired a (used) Thinkpad tablet dock, for my helix 2.

However, it disconnects everything when i connect a power plug - USB, HDMI etc. It doesn't matter if the power plug is connected to power - its simply plugging it in the dock, that causes this.

I can charge the tablet with power connected - but i simply cannot get everything connected simultaneously.

I have tried with both the Helix 2, and a thinkpad tablet 10.

Any suggestions on what migth be wrong?

EDIT: Fixed it with a new charger.
Thinkpad W500 (2.53 GHz P8700, 4 GB RAM, FireGL V5700, WUXGA)
Thinkpad T61F 14" (2.53 GHz QX9300, 6 GB RAM, Quadro FX570m 256 MB, SXGA). Advanced dock with AMD Radeon HD7750
Custom build ITX desktop (i5 4590, 8GB RAM, AMD R7 260X, custom watercooling)
Thinkpad 8, Fujitsu F-07C

FS: T61F
