Poor FM reception with Altec Lansing IM600 when using ac adapter

Fm radio works ok only on battery power. Plug in the adapter and the reception degrades. Could it be a problem with the ac adapter creating interference?

    Same problem here with the poor FM reception. At first I just ended up playing the radio with it unplugged. Then I saw my son had an "alligator clip lead" and I attached to the end of the antenna and the other end I clipped up onto my window frame and the static went away!... you may also want to try putting about one foot of speaker wire on the end to lengthen the antenna. This also worked for me. Not the best looking solution but it worked for me. Hope you get it working for you. Please let me know if you find a better solution than mine.

    I have the same problem or worse I get no FM reception any where. I have taken my altec lansing IM600 to several places where other radios are working just fine and I still do get any radio station signal.

Just wonderin with my Im600 whether to leave in wall socket power. Or is it better to just use up the battery then recharge when I need to.
Also If I use the wall charger plugged in permanently Is it better to take Battery out???

Here is what I recommend, and It may be irrelevant but it could work.

the ac adapter cable may be creating interference with the radio signal, so what you can do is go ahead and try connecting the ac adapter as far away as possible from the device in a way that the( keep the cable as far away from the device, just leaving the plug into the hole)

and try putting some antistatic tape onto the end that goes into the device.

good day

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.
