Mic Not Working - OneLink Pro + X1 Carbon 2nd Gen

Q: Mic Not Working - OneLink Pro + X1 Carbon 2nd Gen

I have an X1 Carbon 2nd generation and hooked to it a OneLink Pro dock. Attached to that are two external monitors, a keyboard, mouse, USB HD and ethernet. I used to connect my headphones directly to my notebook but a few months ago I noticed that when my notebook is hooked to the dock the notebook's audio would not work. Not a giant problem becasue I could get audio feed via the dock. But, it is a problem when I am on a conference call because the Mic feed doesn't work in the dock. To join a conference call I have to unhook my notebook and use my headset with the notebook. Alternatively I can join the audio section of the call on my phone and then the webfeed on my notebook. Both are frustrating. Can I force the audio/mic feedback on my notebook even when hooked to the OneLink doc? Or, can the Mic feed go through the dock?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Mic Not Working - OneLink Pro + X1 Carbon 2nd Gen

I have two X2 Carbon 3d Gen systems and two OneLink Pro docks with the same problem. The dock combo port microphone feed does not work.

I have the latest OneLink Pro software installed (1.08.36), and already updated the dock to the latest firmware (2.24).

When I plug a headset into the OneLink Pro combo port, it is detected, and looks OK... BUT the headset audio is dead, while the X1 microphones are still picking up audio:



I have to unplug the X1 from the OneLink Pro and plug the headset into the X1 combo port to have a conversation :-s.

Any ideas out there?

We have a few Lenovo displays we are replacing and wanted to get some USB-C displays for our few MacBook Pro users, but also work with our OneLink Pro & Ultra Docks. Ultra Dock works great with DisplayPort & HDMI. The MacBook Pro's work great with USB-C and Apple's USB to ethernet gets us all set there. The issue is the X1 (gen 3) with OneLink Pro dock. When we setup the dock with DisplayPort it shows the display is connected in the Display Properties, along with resolution and extended desktop, but the display itself shows nothing and has an orange light. We tried 3 different docks and laptops, 2 different P24h displays, and 3 different DisplayPort cables. Confirmed both the display and dock support DisplayPort 1.2. Any idea on what I can do to get this going? So far this is the best display we could find that covers all our bases for our needs.

I had to replace my Lenovo X1Carbon this month and I specifically ordered another on so I could continue to use my three OneLink Pro docking stations (one in each city where I work). To be safe, I checked compatibility by looking on the Lenovo site. https://support.lenovo.com/ca/en/solutions/migr-4tpjf4When I unpacked the new laptop today, I found to my dismay that it doesn't accept the connector to the OneLink Pro. It has two USB-C ports instead. When I contacted Lenovo to see if they have any sort of adaptor, they said I should  get a USB-C dock or something called a Thunderbolt. I?m reluctant to spend between five and eight hundred dollars to trash and replace three perfectly good docks. Does anyone know of any way I could rescue some utility from my docking stations?

Whenever I turn on one of our new 4th X1 laptops through the onelink+ dock I can't get any display on either of my screens (external and on the laptop). On some of them I'm able to enter our harddrive pwd, and then nothing happens, all screens go black, and nothing but the kill switch can get back the display. The monitor(s) do not go into power saving mode. This is on Windows 7 x64, with a std. clean image, and using the latest sccm driver package from Lenovo website + latest dock Onelink + dock driver. The issue also occurs on a manual clean install, using systemupdate to install all drivers.

I recently bought a X1 Yoga as a personal laptop to compliment my Gen 3 X1 Carbon. I istakenly thought the onelink dock would be indentical, only to find they use different ports. From what I can tell, Lenovo does not sell a converter cord. Has anyone run into this issue? Am I stuck having two docks on my desk or should I just convert to a generic USB doc (non-Lenovo)?

Hello anybody, I got the brand new Carbon X1 with i7-5600U and OneLink Pro couple days ago and I have issues ever since.I have 2 main issues. 1. Laptop alone works like a charm, but when I connect the laptop to oneLink I can't get an image on my second exterior display via dvi nor via vga. The computer finds the screen and name etc, but when I want double or extend or only screen 2 projection nothing happens on the external screen. It keeps saying no input. I have tried to reinstall dock driver, change resolution, updated even bios, still nothing happens. 2. This problem is even more disturbing. If my computer is turned off or restarted while connected to OneLink dock pro, it won't start and freezes at lenovo logo. If I pust laptop to sleep while conected it boots normaly, if i turn it off not connected, then connect it and start it also boots normaly. But when it is shut down while conected it doesn't. Not even if i turn it off while connected, unplug it and turn it on. I have to do reset in this case. Guys I really need help, since those issues make my dock almost completly useless.HELP! Tilen_T

Hi all, I'm looking for some feedback before I order the 6th gen X1 Carbon, I currently have an old OneLink+ dock left over from my previous Carbon and I'm wondering if it will be compatible with the new generation as well. I looked at some pictures of the laptop and it seems like it has a port for this dock but then I found other posts that say they are not compatibile with each other. X1 Model - 20KH002MUSDock Model - DU9047S1 Is there anyway to know for sure before ordering it? Or should I just play it safe and order one of the new Thunderbolt docks?

Hey, Funny enough this has nothing to do with the dock itself. Just opened up laptop the other day and in the bottom right it says that "ThinkPad OneLink Dock Attached!" I've tried checking devices as well as looking for a usb port being used in my computer and theres nothing in either place. Just to repeat there is nothing attached in any usb port, in this laptops very short life there has yet to be anything in any usb port so I'm not quite sure whats going on. I have malwarebytes and I ran a scan today and found nothing. Any ideas?Morten Nissov

I have been having a problem with my ethernet port on my OneLink Pro+ Dock connected to my X1 Yoga almost since the day I received it.  If you undock the laptop and then reconnect the laptop to the dock, the ethernet port on the dock will not function.  The only way I have found to get it to function is by unplugging all connectors from the dock (including power) with the laptop connected and then plug everything back into the dock.  Only after doing this will I get status lights on ethernet port and have any connectivity.  Everything works fine with a USB ethernet dongle, but I should be able to use the built in one on the dock itself. This problem is identical to the issue that has been solved for Windows 7 users - see below thread.  Please address this for Windows 10 users. https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X1-Carbon-Gen-4-Onelink-Dock-Ethernet-Sometim...

Sometimes when I connect the Onelink connector from the Onelink+ dock, the ethernet port is not detected.  The monitor shows up and usb ports function but there is no local area connection listed in the netword adapters.  If I disconnect the Onelink connector from the X1 and reconnect it, then suddenly the local area connection shows up and is there until the next time I redock the Onelink+.   Is this a known bug?  Anyone else having this problem? This is on Windows 7 x64 with all the latest drivers installed from the Lenovo website.

Hello, I just bought an X1 Carbon Gen 4 and need to hook up 2 external monitors which have VGA, HDMI or DVI ports available. The idea is to have a 3 monitor setup (all three monitors with a resolution of 1920x1080) including the Built-in monitor and the 2 external ones. I have bought the OneLink+ adapter that has the RJ45 and VGA ports (4X90J31060) and am trying to set the whole rig up so that one monitor connects to the VGA port on the adapter and the other monitor is connected through the HDMI port on the laptop. The problem is that I can only seem to get 2 monitors going at a time, either Built-in & HDMI or Built-in & VGA. Before I go and buy more hardware (i.e. dock or MiniDP to HDMI/DVI adaptor), I was wondering if what I am attempting is even possible, and if it is, what I am doing wrong. Thanks to anyone who can answer.

When I lock the computer to leave my area and come back to unlock the computer (after as little as a minute), the external monitors have turned off to standby and it takes5-10 seconds to turn on from standby mode.  I would prefer that my external monitors stay on, while the computer is locked. I have attached a picture of the computer display/power settings.

A few days ago I was prompted to install an urgent BIOS update.  I followed the screen prompts and the system rebooted and flashed the BIOS.  Our company laptops all have Sophos encryption, which requires a separate login prior to booting the OS (Win7).  I've always been able to enter user ID and password information on that screen using the USB keyboard connected to my OneLink+ dock (which is connected to the laptop). Following this BIOS update, I can no longer use the keyboard or mouse (also USB) connected to the OneLink+ dock until the OS boots.  I have to open my laptop, enter my Sophos ID and password on the laptop keyboard, then close the laptop.  Once the OS (Win7) boots, I can use both the USB devices fine.  Interestingly enough, the monitor attached to the OneLink+ dock functions just fine before the OS boots up. I checked BIOS settings and couldn't see anything there that looked odd or out of place.  I also checed Device Manager to see if there were any warnings or issues, and didn't see anything. I tried to downgrade the BIOS to an earlier version, but once you are above 1.23 that is not possible.  I did flash to the latest release - 1.27 - but that did not fix the issue. So I'm stuck with a rather awkward login process which was not an issue until this BIOS version was installed a few days ago.  I've reviewed other post for similar issues but have not found anything that points at a solution thus far...

Hi everyone, I just switched over at work to the new gen4 version of the X1 Carbon, which of course means I also switched to the new OneLink+ dock.  My issue is that the headphone port on the dock does not work.   The headphone port on the laptop itself does work, it's just the dock's headphone port. When Windows does its initial install of drivers, it gives a failed message for "ThinkPad OneLink Plus Cable dock Audio" [image 1 in link below].  This is also listed with a yellow ! in the device manager [image 2 in link below].  I've gone to Lenovo's driver page and updated the dock drivers (and firmware), as well as the audio drivers just in case.  No luck from any of those. My only lead is that when I try to manually install drives for it, I get a message about them not being digitally signed [image 3 in link below]. Googling the phrase "ThinkPad OneLink Plus Cable dock Audio" returns almost no results and those that do show up look extra shady. Link to screenshots: http://imgur.com/a/3ucoD Anyone run into this issue before?  Any ideas? Thanks!

All, I recently purchased a ThinkPad E531 together with a OneLink dock. The laptop appears to be working just fine. Currently running Windows 8 64 bit. However, the OneLink dock is giving some problems: First of all, the HDMI connection, network interface and USB 3.0 ports seem to be working fine, but... - the audio interface is not working nor is it recognized by Windows (currently I have a simple speakerset connected, but headphones didn't work either and uninstalling / reinstalling the Conextant audio drivers didn't solve the problem). - None of the USB 2.0 ports on the dock are working (they do appear to have power as the light on my WD Passport is blinking when connected). The USB ports on the laptop itself work fine. - When connecting a non-USB 3.0 device to the USB 3.0 ports also these DO NOT work (keyboard, mouse, external HDD with external power, USB stick, none of these) - The OneLink dock tray icon briefly appears when booting showing a status that the dock is not connected (Windows device overview however shows it with status connected through USB 3.0). I've tried removing all USB devices through the Windows deivce manager and reinstalling, updating / reinstalling drivers etc. etc.  I suspect it's either a driver problem or even potentially a hardware issue. Any help / suggestions would be appreciated!

It is associated with turning off the native LCD, whcich is OK for me. I would like to use ThinkPad OneLink+ Dock (40A40090XX). The docking station has 2 DP and 1 VGA. The issue is I'd rather use 2 DP from docking station and one DP which is on board Yoga instead of VGA. Is such configuration possible? I would like to figure it out before I will buy the station. I've found document: https://support.lenovo.com/uu/en/documents/pd029622 , but there is nothing on using docking stations' DP and native DP in one configuration, simultaneously. Whether it is because on board DP will be disabled? The alternative is MST (eg. http://www.club-3d.com/index.php/products/reader.en/product/multi-stream-transport-mst-hub.html). Both devices are at a comparable price, and if I had confidence that the docking station will work with onboard DP simultaneously, I would choose it.  Thank you in advance, best regardsM

Since no one has replied, I would like close this discussion.  Still someone might benefit for the information, that: - I have purchased and tested ThinkPad OneLink+ Dock- it works with 3 external monitors using 2 DP from docking station and one mini-DP from Yoga itself- working configuration is as follows: 2 displays are connected to OneLink+ Dock with one active DP to DVI converter, one passive DP to DVI converter and the last one (Yogas? port) with active mini-DP to DVI converter- I didn?t try to use for example 2 or 3 passive DP to DVI converters (but I guess that 2 should do the job, but 3 will probably won?t work)- when OneLink+ Dock is attached, the HDMI port in Yoga is not working! (the information one can also find in BIOS, but no materials on-line) Best regards,Maciej

I have a X1 Tablet with a productivity module attached.  I connect a Onelink+ doc to the Onelink+ port on the prod module.  Everything works great except when attaching a Monitor to the display port with an HDMI adapter, I cannot get the display to work unless I reboot the whole system with everything attached.  Then I can extend my display to the 2nd display.   If I disconnect the display and go home and I try to connect my HDMI monitor to the HDMI port on the prod module I cannot get it to work at all....even on a reboot.   The monitor says no signal detected.  If I try to detect the 2nd monitor it just fails saying I don't have one attached.  I have all the latest firmware and bios installed on the onlink and X1.  There does not seem to be anything I can find for the Prod module.  I have called Lenovo service and they have replaced both the Prod module and the Onlink+.   Same problems.Anyone else experiencing difficulties with  this setup?   Rebooting is a real pain every day to get things working in the office, but the HDMI port not working at home is a real downer. I also have a dongle that converts the mini displayport to HDMI and that works fine. Thoughts?

I bought this X1 Carbon 6th gen a couple weeks ago, I never used the USB ports.Today I found the USB port on the right side is totally not responding. I have tried USB stick, my phones, none of those gave any feedback when plugged in. The left USB is working perfectly. I suspected it was the driver, but after uninstalled and installed, no luck. I even installed Ubuntu, same results. So it is not the driver. I also tried the emergency reset button. I used Lenovo Vantage to test hardware, no errors found. Any advice/suggestions? What else can I try? Thanks!

A:X1 Carbon 5th gen Touchpad not working

I have the same problem. This is also effecting the gen4 . With the latest "n1cgr16w.exe". First, it takes a long time to switch between tabs in "Synaptics Control Panel", Ok", "Cancel" is taking forever to close the dialogbox. Also no checkbox can be selected in "Scroll" tab. This latest driver literally does not work. It CANNOT even provide the simplest functionality. Need to rollback the changes asap.  Thanks

Hi communityI just received my new X1 Carbon 6th gen laptop, and all drivers are fully up to date.My problem is that the HDMI port does not seem to work - I've tried connecting multiple external screens to the HDMI port, but nothing happens (no screen-flickering either, as I experience on other pc's when connecting a remote display). Any ideas? RegardsTommy
