W520 - mini dock plus series 3 (4338) suddenly doesn't charge anymore

2019-01-04, 18:22 PM

Hello,

 

As the title says; suddenly, it stops charging the W520. It has worked fine previously.

 

When I remove the battery from the W520, but leave the W520 in the docking station, it refuses to power on also, so I take it the docking station died (?) Are there things to try aside from cleaning connectors?

 

(When I connect the power cable directly to the W520 it charges fine, btw).

 

I found another one (4338 too), but it is shipped with a 90W electricity cable. Mine was shipped with a 170W cable. Can I buy this 'new' docking station and use my own 170W cable, or will it blow up the docking station?

 

Thank you very much for any help,

 

Happy new year,

 

Sjaan
