    That is interesting..

    So what is needed is someone to check for voltages on the dock connector WHILE the G1 is docked or the keyboard connected.

    If i try to power on the usb hard drive from the usb port on the IKEY keyboard it gives me a power failure error but i am able to charge my phone.
    As you can tell on the picture i am not connected to AC power but drawing power from the keyboard usb port.
    I guess the keyboard usb port was not meant for high power draw but the dock was overbuilt by Panasonic.

    The LEDs for the lighted iKey keyboard for the FZ-G1 are powered through USB from the G1 docking connector, but the power appears to be divided between the keyboard LEDs and the USB port on the side. The data sheet for the latest version, IK-PAN-FZG1-C1-V5, says
    Since USB is supposed to be limited to 500 mA, that implies that at full brightness about half is available for the keyboard LEDs and half for the USB port. Presumably, dimming or turning off the LEDs would allow more power at the port, but I haven't verified that.

    Dern it! I don't have a DMM with me.

    So, can someone see if there is voltage on g1 connector pins? I have a feeling that pins 1-3 or 20-24 might tell the g1 that it is docked, which may or may not enable the docking pins or voltages?

    can you test your vebg11 when the dock power on, the pin voltage P4 & P5 without fz-g1

    I get no voltage between P4 and P5-P10
    The grounds have continuity between them
    The grounds have continuity to the bigger spring loaded spikes on the dock (to ensure the FZG1 is grounded before making any electrical/signal contact.

    When I measure resistance on my powered on FZG1 between P1 and P22, I get 1Mohm (100,000 ohm)
    When I measure resistance on my powered on FZG1 between P21 and P22 I get 1Mohm
    When I measure resistance on my other unpowered FZG1, I get open continuity between P1 and P22
    When I measure resistance on my other unpowered FZG1, I get open continuity between P21 and P22

    thanks ,i need the resistance P5&P22 on docker without fz-g1
    1.P5&P22 (only docker)
    2. P5&P4 voltage with docker power on (only docker)
    can you help me
    thank you ..it's so sorry to let you make more test
