Chapter 3. Using the dock
This section provides instructions on how to use the connectors on the dock:
•
“Using the headset and microphone combo connector” on page 7
•
“Using the Ethernet connector” on page 7
•
“Using the USB connectors” on page 8
•
“Using the DP and VGA connectors” on page 8
The dock expands the connection capability of your computer. You can connect devices to the appropriate
connectors on the dock after your computer is turned on. Normally it takes several seconds for the computer
to recognize new devices.
The dock simplifies the connection between your computer and multiple devices. For example, you can
connect the USB devices and external monitors to the dock rather than the computer. When you want to
take your computer away, you can disconnect the computer from the dock rather than remove the USB
devices and external monitors. When you come back, simply connect your computer to the dock to resume
all previous connections and start working at once.
Using the headset and microphone combo connector
The headset and microphone combo connector on the dock is a 3.5-mm (0.14-inch) microphone combined
stereo line-out connector. It works for the standard 3.5-mm (0.14-inch) headset, microphone, or speaker.
Note: The headset and microphone combo connector on the dock are automatically enabled after you
have successfully connected the dock to your computer and installed the device driver. However, if you
cannot hear anything from the headset connected to the dock, you can manually enable the headset and
microphone combo connector on the dock. See “Manually enabling the headset and microphone combo
connector” on page 11 for more information.
Using the Ethernet connector
To use the Ethernet connector on the dock, connect the dock to a standard 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps, or 1000
Mbps network.
The Ethernet connection on the dock supports the following functions:
• ThinkVantage Access Connections (Windows 7 only)
Access Connections is a connectivity assistant program for creating and managing location profiles.
Each location profile stores all the network and Internet configuration settings needed for connecting
to a network infrastructure from a specific location such as a home or an office. By switching between
location profiles as you move your computer from place to place, you can quickly and easily connect to a
network with no need to manually reconfigure your settings and restart the computer each time.
• Preboot eXecution Environment (supported on some Lenovo computers)
The PXE technology makes the computer more manageable by enabling the computer to start from a
server. For the PXE supported computer list, go to www.lenovo.com/accessoriesguide.
• MAC address Pass Through
Your dock MAC address is the same as that of your computer, after enabling the MAC address Pass
Through function.
• Wake on LAN
© Copyright Lenovo 2016

The network administrator can turn on a computer from a management console by using the Wake on
LAN function. When the Wake on LAN function is enabled, many operations, such as data transfer,
software updates, and flash updates of the UEFI BIOS, can be done remotely without remote attendance.
The updating process can perform after normal working hours and on weekends, so that the users are not
interrupted during work, and the LAN traffic is kept to a minimum. It saves time and increases productivity.
Note: You can enable the PXE function, the MAC address Pass Through function, and the Wake on LAN
function through configuring the BIOS on your computer. For more information about configuring the BIOS,
refer to the user guide that comes with your computer.
There are two indicators on the top of the Ethernet connector.

2. I cannot play back videos on the external monitor but can play them back on the computer
monitor.
Some computers do not support the Certified Output Protection Protocol (COPP), and you will not be
able to play back the protected videos on the external monitor connected to the dock.
To play back videos on the external monitor, you can connect the external monitor to the VGA or DP
connector on your computer, and extend the display to the external monitor. For more information about
configuring the display settings, see Chapter 4 “Working with the dock” on page 9.
3. The images on the external monitor flutter.
Check the display resolution setting of the computer and ensure that the resolution is supported by
the dock.
4. The images on the external monitor are not in correct colors.
Check the color quality of the external monitor and adjust the color to the correct color. See “Setting the
color quality of the external monitor” on page 12.
5. The computer can play back Web flashes. However, when I drag the window to the external
monitor and maximize the playback window, the playback stops.
To solve the problem, update your Adobe Flash Player to the latest version.
6. The external monitor display is blank, or the images on the external monitor flutter.
Connect one or two external monitors at a time. It is not recommended that you connect three external
monitors.
Audio
I cannot hear anything through my computer speakers or I cannot use the audio connectors on the
computer.
By default, ThinkPad and other Lenovo computers use the headset and microphone combo connector on
the dock and disable built-in audio connectors when the dock is connected.
To enable the built-in audio connectors on your computer, do the following:
1. Right-click the Volume icon in the Windows notification area.
2. Select Sounds, and the Sound window is displayed.
3. Click the Playback tab to select a built-in audio device, and then click the Recording tab to select
another built-in audio device.
See “Manually enabling the headset and microphone combo connector” on page 11 for more information.
Notes:
• To apply the new settings, restart the applications that are using the audio devices.
• The settings you have adjusted will be saved until you change the settings next time.

This Lenovo Limited Warranty consists of the following parts:
Part 1 - General Terms
Part 2 - Country-specific Terms
Part 3 - Warranty Service Information
The terms of Part 2 replace or modify terms of Part 1 as specified for a particular country.
Part 1 - General Terms
This Lenovo Limited Warranty applies only to Lenovo hardware products you purchased for your own use and
not for resale. This Lenovo Limited Warranty is available in other languages at www.lenovo.com/warranty.
What this Warranty Covers
Lenovo warrants that each Lenovo hardware product that you purchase is free from defects in materials and
workmanship under normal use during the warranty period. The warranty period for the product starts on
the original date of purchase as shown on your sales receipt or invoice or as may be otherwise specified
by Lenovo. The warranty period and type of warranty service that apply to your product are as specified
in “Part 3 - Warranty Service Information” below. This warranty only applies to products in the country
or region of purchase.
THIS WARRANTY IS YOUR EXCLUSIVE WARRANTY AND REPLACES ALL OTHER WARRANTIES
OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED
WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
AS SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF EXPRESS OR
IMPLIED WARRANTIES, THE ABOVE EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN THAT EVENT, SUCH
WARRANTIES APPLY ONLY TO THE EXTENT AND FOR SUCH DURATION AS REQUIRED BY LAW AND
ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD. AS SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO
NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON THE DURATION OF AN IMPLIED WARRANTY, THE ABOVE LIMITATION
ON DURATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
How to Obtain Warranty Service
If the product does not function as warranted during the warranty period, you may obtain warranty service by
contacting Lenovo or a Lenovo approved Service Provider. A list of approved Service Providers and their
telephone numbers is available at: www.lenovo.com/support/phone.
Warranty service may not be available in all locations and may differ from location to location. Charges may
apply outside a Service Provider’s normal service area. Contact a local Service Provider for information
specific to your location.
Customer Responsibilities for Warranty Service
Before warranty service is provided, you must take the following steps:
• follow the service request procedures specified by the Service Provider;

•
•
•
•
backup or secure all programs and data contained in the product;
provide the Service Provider with all system keys or passwords;
provide the Service Provider with sufficient, free, and safe access to your facilities to perform service;
remove all data, including confidential information, proprietary information and personal information, from
the product or, if you are unable to remove any such information, modify the information to prevent its
access by another party or so that it is not personal data under applicable law. The Service Provider shall
not be responsible for the loss or disclosure of any data, including confidential information, proprietary
information, or personal information, on a product returned or accessed for warranty service;
• remove all features, parts, options, alterations, and attachments not covered by the warranty;
• ensure that the product or part is free of any legal restrictions that prevent its replacement;
• if you are not the owner of a product or part, obtain authorization from the owner for the Service Provider
to provide warranty service.
What Your Service Provider Will Do to Correct Problems
When you contact a Service Provider, you must follow the specified problem determination and resolution
procedures.
The Service Provider will attempt to diagnose and resolve your problem by telephone, e-mail or remote
assistance. The Service Provider may direct you to download and install designated software updates.
Some problems may be resolved with a replacement part that you install yourself called a “Customer
Replaceable Unit” or “CRU.” If so, the Service Provider will ship the CRU to you for you to install.
If your problem cannot be resolved over the telephone; through the application of software updates or
the installation of a CRU, the Service Provider will arrange for service under the type of warranty service
designated for the product under “Part 3 - Warranty Service Information” below.
If the Service Provider determines that it is unable to repair your product, the Service Provider will replace
it with one that is at least functionally equivalent.
If the Service Provider determines that it is unable to either repair or replace your product, your sole
remedy under this Limited Warranty is to return the product to your place of purchase or to Lenovo for a
refund of your purchase price.
Replacement Products and Parts
When warranty service involves the replacement of a product or part, the replaced product or part becomes
Lenovo’s property and the replacement product or part becomes your property. Only unaltered Lenovo
products and parts are eligible for replacement. The replacement product or part provided by Lenovo may
not be new, but it will be in good working order and at least functionally equivalent to the original product or
part. The replacement product or part shall be warranted for the balance of the period remaining on the
original product.
Use of Personal Contact Information
If you obtain service under this warranty, you authorize Lenovo to store, use and process information about
your warranty service and your contact information, including name, phone numbers, address, and e-mail
address. Lenovo may use this information to perform service under this warranty. We may contact you to
inquire about your satisfaction with our warranty service or to notify you about any product recalls or safety
issues. In accomplishing these purposes, you authorize Lenovo to transfer your information to any country
where we do business and to provide it to entities acting on our behalf. We may also disclose it where
required by law. Lenovo’s privacy policy is available at www.lenovo.com/.

Under CRU Service, the Service Provider will ship CRUs to you at its cost for installation by you. CRU
information and replacement instructions are shipped with your product and are available from Lenovo at any
time upon request. CRUs that are easily installed by you are called “Self-service CRUs”. “Optional-service
CRUs” are CRUs that may require some technical skill and tools. Installation of Self-service CRUs is your

types of warranty service designated for your product. An optional service offering may be available for
purchase from a Service Provider or Lenovo under which Self-service CRUs would be installed for you.
You may find a list of CRUs and their designation in the publication that was shipped with your product
or at www.lenovo.com/CRUs. The requirement to return a defective CRU, if any, will be specified in the
instructions shipped with a replacement CRU. When return is required: 1) return instructions, a prepaid
return shipping label, and a container will be included with the replacement CRU; and 2) you may be charged
for the replacement CRU if the Service Provider does not receive the defective CRU from you within thirty
(30) days of your receipt of the replacement CRU.
2. On-site Service
Under On-Site Service, a Service Provider will either repair or exchange the product at your location. You
must provide a suitable working area to allow disassembly and reassembly of the product. Some repairs
may need to be completed at a service center. If so, the Service Provider will send the product to the
service center at its expense.
3. Courier or Depot Service

Under Customer Carry-In Service, your product will be repaired or exchanged after you deliver it to a
designated service center at your risk and expense. After the product has been repaired or exchanged, it will

the product as it sees fit, with no liability to you.

Battery recycling information for the European Union
Notice: This mark applies only to countries within the European Union (EU).
Batteries or packaging for batteries are labeled in accordance with European Directive 2006/66/EC
concerning batteries and accumulators and waste batteries and accumulators. The Directive determines the
framework for the return and recycling of used batteries and accumulators as applicable throughout the
European Union. This label is applied to various batteries to indicate that the battery is not to be thrown
away, but rather reclaimed upon end of life per this Directive.
In accordance with the European Directive 2006/66/EC, batteries and accumulators are labeled to indicate
that they are to be collected separately and recycled at end of life. The label on the battery may also
include a chemical symbol for the metal concerned in the battery (Pb for lead, Hg for mercury, and Cd for
cadmium). Users of batteries and accumulators must not dispose of batteries and accumulators as unsorted
municipal waste, but use the collection framework available to customers for the return, recycling, and
treatment of batteries and accumulators. Customer participation is important to minimize any potential
effects of batteries and accumulators on the environment and human health due to the potential presence of
hazardous substances.
Before placing electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) in the waste collection stream or in waste collection
facilities, the end user of equipment containing batteries and/or accumulators must remove those batteries
and accumulators for separate collection.

Important WEEE information
The WEEE marking on Lenovo products applies to countries with WEEE and e-waste regulations (for
example, the European WEEE Directive, India E-Waste Management & Handling Rules, 2011). Appliances are
labeled in accordance with local regulations concerning waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).
These regulations determine the framework for the return and recycling of used appliances as applicable
within each geography. This label is applied to various products to indicate that the product is not to be
thrown away, but rather put in the established collection systems for reclaiming these end of life products.
Users of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) with the WEEE marking must not dispose of end of life
EEE as unsorted municipal waste, but use the collection framework available to them for the return, recycle,
and recovery of WEEE and to minimize any potential effects of EEE on the environment and human health
due to the presence of hazardous substances. Lenovo electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) may contain
parts and components, which at end-of-life might qualify as hazardous waste.
EEE and waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) can be delivered free of charge to the place of
sale or any distributor that sells electrical and electronic equipment of the same nature and function as
the used EEE or WEEE.
