@bst 1.0 or 2.0 stations? What do you mean by when you enable "only this one". Generally - SteamVR should be giving you some specific error messages if the station is broken.

If 1.0, try unplugging the good station, and try the station while it's set to mode A and see if you can get tracking out of it.

If 2.0 stations, use a paperclip to press the pinhole on the back of the affected station while it's plugged in. Give it a few presses - this will manually index the station  Be very careful not to move the station around too much. This will eliminate the possibility that there is a channel conflict.

I also recommend taking your smartphone camera and holding it up to the base-station. You should be able to see two dots where the lasers are being emitted from. If you only see one, or you see none - that might mean the base-station isn't emitting. This is true with both 1.0 and 2.0 stations, but on 1.0 stations, there will be an array of 9 sync LEDS.
