Thnikpad Thunderbolt 3 Workstation Dock 40AN not working with Thinkpad P52 Laptop 20MA

2019-07-21, 19:44 PM

I bought the Thunderbolt 3 Workstation Dock 40AN to use with my Thinkpad P52 Laptop 20MA. But the dock will not switch on after I have connected it to the 170W charger and my P52 laptop. I don't understand what could be the problem. It should just switch on. My laptop says that it is plugged in and that it is fully charged. Besides not switching on, the devices that I connect to the dock do not work. I'm sure that there is something very basic that I'm not doing. I'd appreciate advice on how to solve this problem.

I solved the problem. It was pretty silly really. I did not realize that you have to connect both chargers (175W and 65W) to the docking station. Case closed.
