    Thats it!!! Thanks Dream Beamz, and also that applies to the long version and short version ISA card. If you are using a ThinkPad with docking station sometimes when connecting the DB25 connections while both units (PC and Laser) are powered upped you can actually short the ribbon pins 19 and 20 therefore causing the fuse to blow internally on the docking station.

    When removing the bottom cover and card you will see this. (Pic 1)

    When looking under the slot you will see this. (Pic2)

    Its is a 5amp fuse and you can either tack a fuse across it or run wires to the front CD ROM blank and install a panel mount fuse holder there so you can then replace the fuse very quickly.

    A good way to determine if there is a problem communicating to the card is to go to the configure screen and clicking the calibrate button. If nothing seems to happen but a few numbers changing next to the button then you are pretty much ok but if you get a failed reading timer then the PC is not communicating to the card correctly at all. So at this point give us a call and we will determine the best course of action to get you up and running again.

    Cool

    Some good info in this thread... I've got one of the Selectadoc III units myself, and I didn't know about that fuse!

    Thanks Amanda / Fred!
