    Thanks. It is stuck at the display because there are two screws underneath. You have to take out the plastic sheet which covers the display.
    A shortcut to access the innards of the docking pin is to open only the flap on which the ipod sits. If you run your finger behind the docking pin, you will feel a paper type strip. Remove it with some sharp thing which will give access to the four screws. open that and you have access to the pin. You Do not need to open the entire system for it.

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.

    The language of this url with those very useful photos is "Thai". I figured it out from the time that was indicated in the home URL. You can translate this page by selecting Thai to English in Google. It helps to a certain extent, I'd say.

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 )

    Now my im600 has a docking problem too. :(
    But I can't seem to find that paper strip you talk about.
    Exacly where would this strip be located, because it seems to me that there is no room for screws at all behind the docking pin?
    Would be nice if you could help me out, because now the aux input is the best way for iPods to connect. Thanks in advance!

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.

My IM600 won't power up.


Did you accidentally get the unit wet? I've been touching the power and volume buttons with wet fingers, and my unit just died. Also found a bit of a sticky residue on the pin inside the power connector on the back. I believe the button design allows for water to leak in, resulting in a short circuit.

System turns on but is nonresponsive and doesn't work.


Did you get the im600 wet? I have a similar problem, and I've been touching the power and volume buttons with wet fingers. I believe the design allows for liquid to enter the unit, and then it short circuits. Also found gummy residue around the pin, in the power connector on the back. Hope that helps.

Battery in im600 not charging


The battery is probably dead, as it's rated for 400 cycles. When you have the dock's feet out, you can see 2 tiny screws on the back of the unit, unscrew them, remove the hatch and you'll have your battery exposed. 3.7V 1800mAh Li-Ion

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.
