Question about Altec Lansing IM7 (WMM137039)

Open Question

Hi, my iM7 makes a screeching sound that defends the ear drum. I think the left speaker.

    My IM7 will work fine for a few minutes and then sends this screeching noise out of the speakers.  It sounds like something off of Signs coming out of the walkie-talkies.  It's a great product; obviously I would like to hang on to it a little longer.  
    Thanks for your help.

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.

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.

Humming Sound


Make sure the power cables are not close or entwined with the audio cables. The audio cables pick noise from the power cable and hence u hear the buzzing sound. I havent used your system, but look for a power button on the device itself. That should work in your favor. Else in the computer itself you can mute the speakers.

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.
