6910P does not charge on hp docking

I have just got 6910p and it does not charge on the Hp docking; i have tried a number of different Hp docking stations with no luck, the laptop charges fine outside the docking station, and run perfectly in all other means.

I am not sure if this is a hardware problem on the laptop.

Re: 6910P does not charge on hp docking

Hi...

Are you sure you have the correct docking station for your notebook? Contrary to popular "wisdom," not all hp docking stations are the same. Check it out by going to this URL and selecting "Supplies, options & accessories" on the left side of the page. Then compare what you have with what is recommended there.

Re: 6910P does not charge on hp docking

I have tried the EN489AA and EN488AA, models as stated on the page.

I have also had the machine looked at anf there are no errors.

The network and monitor work fine through both docking stations, this is a very strange problem.

Re: 6910P does not charge on hp docking

I also have this issue with a Hp 6910p laptop.

It charges fine with the powercord directly, via the docking station does not work. I've swapped out the docking station and no luck.

The docking station is an EN488AA

I had a similar problem, but found out that the docking station seemed to require using athe large power brick for power rather than the smaller power supply used directly on the laptop.

Re: 6910P does not charge on hp docking

I've just ran into the same problem with a 6910p that has had it's system board replaced. Does anyone have any idea what might be causing it?

Re: 6910P does not charge on hp docking

Hi I just purchased the KP081AA advanced docking station, am using the supplied power block, and find that my 6910p is not charging when docked, but only on this docking station. With the original docking station that I had, it was charging just fine. I looked at the compatible list of docking stations for 6910p, and KP081 is listed as compatible. Does anyone have any updates?
