Lenovo ThinkPad T420s no sound in Dock

Postby otas.pe » 2017-02-09 16:01

Hello

I would like to ask you for your help. I have laptop Lenovo ThinkPad T420s and Lenovo ThinkPad Mini Dock Series 3 4337. There is no sound during docking. Out of dock there is no problem, sound works. In dock there is no sound from integrated speakers nor external as well.

Sound card:
Code: Select all
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family High Definition Audio Controller (rev 04)


System:
Debian Stretch 64bit Gnome

If you have any idea please let me know.

Thank you in advance.

Do you Boot with the Dock attached?

Or do you Boot and then attach the Dock?

On my (old) Thinkpad I can connect the dock and the sound buttons on the computer still work - Volume Up, Volume Down and Mute - but the sound comes through the dock.

Please post the output of:
Code: Select all
pacmd list-sinks

Run this command with the laptop docked and also with it un-docked so that we can compare the two.
