The back base and iPod holder front are not synching correctly (opening and closing). I want to open the player to see if I can correct it. How does it open up?

YPMDesign is correct, but to get further into the im600 you have to peel off the cover that masks the LCD (it has Altec Lansing printed on it). Once done, it exposes 2 screws, and when removed you can pull open the whole thing, exposing the main circuitry. There is nothing that can be reseated though, as all appears soldered. There is one main board, which everything connects to, then the PCB at the bottom of the system, which has the power buttton and ipod dock connector etc. Unfortunately I have been unale to resolve my problem, where the Power buttton LED lights briefly if the battery is removed and reconnected, but getting nothing on the main display, and the power button is not responding at all when depressed. Mine is sadly bin bound..

I just did it an you are almost right. After you take off the LCD screen by prying up on an edge and slowly removing it (it is a thick plastic sticker)....then you pry off the speaker mesh to reveal 12 more long screws which includes 2 long screws at each speaker. I realized this after thinking I was done with the sticker (mentioned before). I was prying around the edge and snapped 2 plastic screw nubs. I also kinda f-d up the edge prying......thought you should know!!!

I own the im600 and I have managed to take it apart far enough to fix it. I saw no screws to open the system, but I saw that the grille was loose, so carefully I took it off using a tweezer with a sharp point (sticking it in the holes is the grille near the edge, using the tweezer as a lever) after some time the grille was off. After that I could take the speakers out etc. Maybe this could help you. Only thing is that I haven't figured out yet how to open the whole system and exposing the circuitry etc, it stays stuck at the display somehow (if you figure it out, please tell me )

Remove the Grill. Remove all screws, including the speakers'. Then remove the clear plastic over the LCD to reveal more screws.

Then you have it.

How do I open the altec lansing inMotion im600? I


There is a button on the front of the unit that is just below the LCD readout that shows FM / iPod status. Press the button. If it does not open the unit, you may need to tap the back of the unit when doing this or else get something to gently pry open the unfolding section WHILE THE BUTTON IS PRESSED (otherwise you'll break the mechanism and won't be able to lock it again. It sounds like whatever you put in to create the connection may be jamming up your opening.
The unit comes with several adapters for different iPod models, you may want to try a different adapter; you shouldn't need to put anything else in it to maintain a connection. If you don't have those adapters anymore, you can probably get them off the altec lansing web site.

I shipped my Altec Lansing IM600 in a box within a box, and now the docking station is shut and the cord missing. How do I reopen it? Also do I need an genuine AL adapter plug as a replacement?


I could not open mine either, very frustrating. I finally jammed some screwdrivers in and pried it open, with considerable effort. The front and back are connected, open simultaneously. The only latch I see is front and center. My suggestion is you get something razor thin and stick in straight through the front center (directly below the LCD display)... that might undo the latch and release the door.

I used a 2G jailbroken iPhone and it worked fine. Try looking elsewhere.

I cant get any sound when i plug in the 8GB iTouch


Chances are it's the docking module... try pulling the ipod forward and see if you get some sound.

One can slip something in behind the ipod to prop it so it will give sound sometimes but overtime the problem gets worse in my experience.

There's the Auxillary input as well in the back... i.e. running an adapter from the headphone jack to the back. For an Ipod Classic one can leave it in the docking station re-charging - for the nano, with the headphone jack on the bottom it can't be placed in the docking station (though can be - recharged when not plugged in)

Don't forget to switch the selection to Auxiliary rather than Ipod

That being said, in terms of sound quality, the quality is much better (highs are higher) when plugged into the docking station compared to the Auxiliary input

My im600 is new but never charged my ipod. It played OK at first but the adapter does not charge the battery. The player does not play without the battery and then only for about 5 seconds. Is it just a...


First of all, did you fully charge the battery using the A/C adapter before initial use? If your ipod does not fit with any of the attachments correctly, try just placing it on the dock without the attachment & it should connect fine just be sure it's connecting to the dock properly. I have the ipod nano 2nd generation & the attachments don't work, but it fits on the dock well without the attachments & works great!

Speakers won't work when Ipod is docked


The problem is that Atlec Lansing used a low quality (piece of ****) plug/interface for the dock. If you pull the top of the ipod forward while it is pressed fully onto the docking station, you'll get a surprise. It will work. This problem stumped me for days. Now, the next question is how much tension is the proper amount not to degrade the cheap plug further or damage the ipod itself.

Cheers,
Jeff
