    I bought the im600 and the remote did not work. I exchanged the product for another and the remote doesn't work now either. I had no problem putting the battery in -- it just doesn't work. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    I just purchased an Altec Lansing inMotion im600 docking station. A round-shape battery was in the same packet with the remote control. How do you install the battery into the remote? There are no instructions given relative to this, and I am afraid I might break the plastic tail end of the remote if I forcefully open it.

    I had the same problem; the battery slot for the remote was not intuitively well-designed and almost impossible to open without damaging the tiny thing, especially since no instructions were included.
    The answer above was the best answer I've read.

    Gently pus the those slots to the middle and pull out the drawer; put the battery in the grooved holder, and push back in. It's tricky, but it works.

    Put the remote upside down and insert your thubnail into the grove and with the index finger nail in the other slot pull the tray out and put the battery in the solt and put the tray back .

Turn the remote upside down. At the bottom, there is a slot that opens the battery tray and a series of grooves that are part of a clip that releases the tray. Insert the fingernail of your thumb into the grooves and the fingernail of your index finger into the slot. Ease the grooves (clip) toward the middle of the remote and slide the tray out. There is a ridge in the tray that matches the battery only when the battery is in the proper position. Slide the tray back in. If the remote doesn't work, you've probably inserted the battery in the wrong position.

So much for the Remote Battery. The design could have been better and aesthetic.

Where i will get battery also after 1/2 hour the system get s off when the power mode


I had the same issue and read here that you may want to try unplugging your battery cable and plugging it back in. First, power down and unplug the im600. Then get a 00 Philips screwdriver and unscrew the two screws that are in the back of the unit (where the remote rests). Gently pull off the cover and you'll see a cylindrical battery with a connector coming from it. Unplug that connector, leave it unplugged about a minute or so, then plug it back in. I am trying this myself right now so I can't confirm that it works yet.
If you find that your battery is dead, and will not recharge, go to AltecLansing.com and contact their customer service. They will instruct you how to obtain a replacement battery.

Altec Lansing will not charge


I have had a similar problem, where the battery LED lights up, then shuts off, but I could not 'power-on' the unit using the on/off button on the front. I measured the battery voltage, and was reading 4V, so that appeared ok, as says 3.7V on its label, However, even with the battery removed, the i600 would still not power on using either its integrated button, or by using the remote control.
I plugged the battery back in, and all is ok!
The battery is accessed by removing just two screws with a cross head, and pulling its cover off. Soi appears that simply removing the battery from its connection, and plugging it in again has cured the prob?
Give it a go, if you haven't already? My unit has been solid/robust/reliable and gets a lot of use and travel, and was gutted that it could need completely replacing.

IM600 rechargeable battery does not charge


The only time I can think of when such a problem would occur is when the battery is completely knackered, in which case, you'll need a new battery. There are instructions for the replacement of batteries in the manual, so all you'll need is a new battery.

Remote control does not work


The battery sits in a little plstic "basket". I fixed my problem by placing a very narrow piece of electrical tape at the back of the basket. This forces the battery forward by the thickness of the tape. This allowed for a more positive connection of the battery to the power pick-ups.
