Question about Altec Lansing Inmotion-IM600 (0021986954446) Docking Station
I also want to open the im600 as there is somthing faulty with the docking pin but i cannot seem to open the unit to have a look inside. let me know if u have a solution. my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
these photos should help... I'm not sure what arabic language it's posted in but one can probably find a translator... the photos are very helpful though...
Bought one on Ebay for $18 including shipping that had a faulty docking station - only works when the ipod is tilted forward... MFs wouldn't replace or refund (Don't buy from 2nd Turn Closeouts!)
next one from Cowboom on ebay went for $13.50 including shipping - that was supposed to be perfect but the speakers were blown (the docking station is in good shape though) - not sure if I should replace the docking station or speakers... speakers are probably easier.
Cowboom gave a full refund. Nice folks... may buy another one hoping for a good used working unit and then will repair one of the others and sell it to recoup.

Take a pair of pliers and gently squeeze the wide sides of the pin connector together across the full width of the pin( the plug has probably got "stretched" open by closing the unit with the ipod in)

The thin strip is *not* immediately behind the 30-pin dock connector. It is as far back as you can go on the unfolding dock before you run into the main body of the radio. You may not have noticed it because it blends in so well. It's about 6mm deep, and runs about 12 cm across the entire unfolding dock. If you look closer, it looks like shiny black tape. Use a utility knife and run it along the entire 12 cm, starting at the end. PROBLEM: the screws are *very tiny*, and the angle to reach them is bad. I gave up. You need to have an extremly tiny screwdrive, and the #000 I have is still too big. I'd skip this approach and try and glue the stand open.

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 )
