    IM600 will not power on, eventually if I move it after some days it will work perfectly for a while and then go back to not working. I am checking with Altec and will report back.

    IM600 bought yesterday - has been on AC power for day but will work when unplugged from Ac power -

    Same here. I just got an exchange and the replacement unit does power erratically. what's up with that product?

  • bacchubhai Feb 06, 2009

    I have exactly the same problem.

    Sometimes it works perfectly for a few days. And then suddenly it does not switch on. In some cases, it does not switch on using the remote either.

    What has helped - again sometimes - is if I lift the box and press the power switch then - it has a higher chance of switching on.

    I already returned one box, thinking that the power-switch was loose but the symptoms in the new (exchanged) box are exactly the same.

    I also have the same problem as described, the display also sometimes displays "IQod" rather than ipod

There is a SURE solution to this problem: move the device away from metals - especially do not put it on metal surfaces such as refrigerators.
It stops being moody then!

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.

The new battery goes in the back of the Altec Lansing imt702. Remove the two screws on the lower back of the unit. The battery is connected via a clip connector. Simply press on the raised end of the clip, and pull off the other end of the connector. The battery is a Lithium-Ion 18650, 3.7V, at least 1800mAh. If you can get a battery with a higher-rated mAh, this will give you longer run times. It might be difficult to find a matching power connector on end of a new battery though. The unit will still run with the battery removed, but of course, will not power without the AC adapter connected to a wall outlet. If your unit has problems, continuously asking to Reset itself, or display+buttons flash (with volume increasing +1 for each blink), this indicates a charging problem. The battery needs to be replaced or removed immediately. You can reset the power manually by holding down the metal clip at the back of the unit for a minute, or just closing the leg/stand to see if this works. To reset unit's factory settings: hold down power & radio << channel buttons for 7 secs, press Power when asked to Reset?, Region=1 for US stations, & press Power again to set Region. Note that the battery is being drained even if the unit is off, so keep the AC connected; completely draining a well-used Li-Ion battery may shorten the rest of its battery life. Remove the battery from the unit if not in use for long periods.

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

Doesnt charge ipod nano

I called Altec Lansing technical support (1-800-258-3288) and stated the problem with the 4th generation nanos not charging. The man I spoke with was aware of the problem and will ship a new unit to anyone calling in with the same issue. I am required to send my unit back to them and they will ship a new unit with a different pin configuration that will solve the problem. You are required to ship the unit with proof of purchase (copy of receipt) to the address they provide in Milford, PA. You will only be out the shipping charges to get it there. He mentioned that I should receive a new unit (Not Rebuilt) around 10 days after they receive mine.
