I had the same issue and I got the lapdock to turn on when I used a different HDMI cablekonduit wrote:So I got all the parts, charged the Lapdock batteries until indicator stopped blinking, and tried to hook this up, but cannot seem to get the Lapdock screen to light up.
The RPi has Debian running fine with an external HDMI monitor and logitech K520 wireless KB and mouse.
1) Lapdock Atrix-port mini USB connected to RPi USB (red wire cut).
2) Lapdock Atrix-port mini HDMI connected to RPi HDMI.
3) Separate power to RPi mini USB.
4) Power to Lapdock.
TEST1: Plug-in RPi, Open Lapdock lid
TEST2: Open Lapdock lid, Power RPi.
Neither gets a reaction out of the Lapdock except for the batt light coming on from being powered up.
RPi also gets normal LED sequences from a boot cycle.
The manuals that came with my Lapdocks (I bought two) were all in Spanish, so I'm not sure from where they originated. The box each came in also did not have the AT&T logo I saw in Adafruit video, but rather a Motorola logo, "Welcome to the future of mobile computing" blazed accross the front, and "Lapdock for Motorolal Atrix" printed in the lower left corner.
Any tips for troubleshooting the Lapdock would be greatly appreciated.

That's a USB mini. Is there something similar that goes to USB micro?malakai wrote:But I have found these cables they do come in 1 foot length if you want to get away from the splicing...
This cable should work:davidkennedy85 wrote:That's a USB mini. Is there something similar that goes to USB micro?
Also, would you still need to cut the 5v wire?
I'm not looking for a lapdock with keys featuring Arabic characters if that's what you mean and, unfortunately, all of the lapdocks ever offered have these pesky keys with numerals that come from ...

Note that the keyboard includes both English and Hebrew characters, so, this model will be perfect for "Steve" to go with his free Pi, if he's ever able to convince Eben to send him one (what a Grinch! ).

Note that this cable set is designed only for charging two micro-USB powered devices simultaneously. It does not contain data conductors/wires in either cable - not so great for getting the lapdock keyboard, trackpad, and USB hub connected to the Pi.davidkennedy85 wrote:http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-AUDM6BEBX ... gy_e_img_y
