Question about Altec Lansing M602 Docking Station for Apple iPod
Whether or not ipod is docked...power on yields only slow drum-like pumping sound.
I popped it open and it seems to behave when its not closed. Seems the culprit is the chip that reads ON 317MBG near the chips w/ the heatsink. I put the cover on loosely got the popping to start again. I hit it with compressed air and it stopped. I'm going to either put some thermally conductive epoxy or silicon to draw the heat away from the area or put wires on that the component to locate it elsewhere so it doesn't get that hot. The component is rated for 125 C

My M602 does the same thing -- I couldn't find any posted solutions anywhere, and no schematics to try and fix myself.
I just got off the phone with Altec Lansing (800-258-3288) - they said this was an internal circuit problem.
They gave me a return number and address, saying they would repair/replace the unit at no charge. No hassles -- didn't ask for anything other than my name and address for their records.
We'll see how this all turns out. Hopefully my only cost will be the shipping charge to PA.
