Question about Altec Lansing inMotion iM7 (021986950806) Docking Station

Open Question

How do I disassemble my Altec Lansing iM7 to make repairs?

I have taken out all of the screws, under the rubber handle, sides but cannot get the rear panel off. I got the front panel with the ipod doc loose but that is it. Does the casing come apart in 1/2 or what. I would appreciate any tips on this. Thank you anyone who knows.

SOURCE: 5th generation iPods hose up while using Altec Lansing IM600

Yes, the docking station is damaging the iPod. The vibration when used load is causing damage to the iPod. If you notice, the iPod will only freeze when it is playing load in the docking station. To avoid the problem, you'll need to play the music at a lower sound with less vibration. Once I began to play my music at more reasonable sound levels, I discontinued the problem. Very disappointing solution...but it is the answer. I too called Altec Lansing. They are not aware of this issue...I told them to search the internet - it's all out there.

I have one that just quit all of a sudden as I was listening to it. Don't know what happened, but it "clicked" and that was it. Sounded great while it was playing, I have the remote if you are interested.

SOURCE: 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.

I have a blown speaker can you tell me if they have replacement speakers for the altec lansing IM7 inmotion


Try getting an old speaker. Alternatively remove the old one by twisting the side of the speaker anticlockwise then unscrew it.
Take it to one of the speaker shops where you could either get something closer to what you have or get a coil rewind and a diaphram change.

Altec lansing inmotion IM7 how to fix dock door?


I've found a solution. Most likely you have broken the catch inside this part so it needs replacing but don't worry, it's relatively easy to do. The latch is the black piece of plastic behind the door with a claw sticking out.
1. First, email the manufacturer and and ask for a sample latch to be sent out to you. After a bit of research I finally found them. In the UK they make them in white so I ordered one of those as I think it looks better (part #DL1WH): http://www.richco-inc.com/component/jumi/search-parts.html?searchinit=true&searchtype=rohs&interest=DL-1&Submit3=Submit
2. Get a pair of thin pliers and carefully pull out the old latch. To do this pull on on any part of the outer rim. I used the lower edge. Don't worry of you damage it. You'll be throwing it away anyway. Just don't damage any of your speakers.
3. Slide the new latch into position and push into place.
4. That's it. All fixed!

Speaker going out


I had the same problem. Eventually the other speaker quit also. The problem was a broken wire under the door. This required complete disassembly of the unit just to get at these two wires. Sorry the news isn't better.

Were can i get parts for a altec lansing iM7 ipod player


You won't be able to by conventional means - probably not at all.

Unconventional means:
1) Find someone selling a broken or very cheap altec lansing im7
2) Send an e-mail to the Altec product development team, and ask very nicely.

I know this is not what you want to hear, but most manufacturers either don't have parts available in the U.S., or they are not willing to sell them to customers.
