Befor disassembling the unit, connect it to a different Ipod, to test that the fault is not on the Ipod side.

Also call the manufacturer to see if there is any factory warranty cover, or if they offer you a free replacement.

You want to open the IM600 but if its still under warranty I suggest you to have it replace, but if not you can continue opening it provided you have any experience fixing electronic device like that..

Now here's a trick. The iM600's volume is not affected by your iPod's internal volume. Because the iM600 plugs in directly to your iPod's system connection, it captures the signal before it hits the iPod's headphone amplifier, making it less prone to the distortion it would face by being amplified twice. This also means that you can listen to your docked iPod over headphones using the internal volume control even if the iM600's volume is set to zero.

My Altec Lansing Inmotion used to charge my Ipod Touch, but since yesterdag (after not using it for 3 weeks) it won't charge my Ipod anymore. The Altec charges itself, but somehow the Ipod doesn't. It is...


That is a tough one. Is your iPod fully seated -- will it play music in the im600? Have you tried a different iPod in the im600 to see if it charges? Does your iPod recharge normally in other players, in a wall charger and your computer? If not, your iPod could possibly need a new battery.
Also: since it was unplugged for 3 weeks, you may just need to run the im600 through a full cycle or two (let the FM radio play until the battery is dead, with no iPod in it), then recharge the im600 for 5 or 6 hours, and THEN mount your iPod into it and see if it charges it. Be sure to unplug/plug-in the adapter into the im600 to ensure it is getting full power from the wall outlet. One last thing: the im600 will only charge the iPod when it is plugged into AC power; it won't charge the iPod while it's running on its own battery power. Good luck!

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

Cannot hear sound when connected to ipod

These photos might help but I haven't tried it yet

My guess is its the docking connector - try pulling the ipod forward a a bit and see if that helps produce any sound. Look on these other threads for other discussions about that.

No power, broke my ipod


I experienced similar problems with my unit. I fixed my iPod by simply resetting it (hold on, hold off, hold the menu and centre button for about 5 secs.) My im600 seems to have some problems with the power button, but if I use the remote of just keep pressing the button till it powers on, I have no problems.
