I have the Altec Lansing IM3 speakers. Everything was working fine and then I put a friend's 60 GB IPOD video on the speakers and now they won't power on. I'm not sure if the IPOD video wasn't comaptible and caused a problem or if that was just a coincidence. Regardless, my speakers no longer will power on. I have tried using the plug as well as the batteries - either way, I cannot get the power light to come on. Any ideas?
Lol, sounds like that iPod sucked the power out of your house. Just kidding. If it is plugged into a wall outlet, make sure that the conections are not bent or warped in any way (remeber this stuff is very fragile so look for the smallest stuff). If it is plugged into one of those multi outlet devils, make sure that is not too clogged up. For those I always use the Male Bathroom Ediquate rule, never stand (nor plug) next to a guy in another urinal.

Pardon my question; but what do you mean everything works fine? Have you attempted to attach the speaker system to an other device, such as a Receiver, DVD player, TV, etc? First check and see if the System works on other electronics and if it is working, then you go back to your computer and start from there; and I assume "everything works fine" could be the computer. The Altec is one of the best systems out there and their quality superior. It is rare to get a new Altec in a defective state as they do a great job on quality control.
Could be somthing wrong with the speaker.. Get a hair dryer and blow the air into the speaker its self. ods are you have gotten water or some liquid into the speaker its self and messed it up ... I would advise getting a new speaker for it or somthing =)
have you checked the voltage requirement of the speakers?possibly, the voltage requirement of your speakers isn't adequately supplied by your batteries.if this is the case,please purchase the necessary batteries that would suffice the needs of your speakers.
there are fast checkings for you:

is the system working fine exept the sub?
my guess: the headphone jack works fine then the speakears are too
if soo then the sub amp is bad
or some connection is torn
try opening the sub and see if everything is hooked right
and if soo then the amp is the problem
every electronics shop can fix this
