Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T60 Notebook ?

T-60 will not seat properly in 2504 docking station.

\015 T-60 will not seat properly in docking station.\015\012I have one of the smaller type 2504 docking stations for my T60. I've been using it just fine for 3+ years. All of a sudden my thinkpad would not seat properly yesterday morning. I've fiddled around a bit with it, not wanting to jam or tweak it or the computer... and just simply cannot get it to seat. Any ideas out there?\015\012\015\012 \015\012IBM ThinkPad T60 PC Notebook + 2504 Docking Station\015

Answers :

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.
